    KK - Chef #426156's Note:

    This recipe originally came from a book called Enjoying American Wines issued by the California Culinary Academy in the mid-1980's. My favorite story about it was when making it on a camping trip to Key West. A man walked by our camp site as I was finishing the sauce and said "Something tells me that is not Cream of Mushroom soup!". Boy, was he right. This is a delicious dish that you can serve to anyone with pride. I've doubled the sauce ingredients from the original recipe because we usually serve it with rice (usually jasmine or basmati) and we like to have extra sauce on the rice. I've made this recipe more often than any other single recipe in my repertoire and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 4


    breasts ...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Trim all bits of fat and membrane from the chicken breasts. In a shallow bowl combine flour, salt and pepper. Dredge breasts in the seasoned flour and shake off the excess. Have a warm, ovenproof plate ready.
    2. 2
      In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the butter and oil. Add chicken breasts and cook just until the thickest part springs back when pressed, 3-5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken to the warm plate and keep warm in the oven while you prepare the sauce. The recipe may be prepared to this point up to 15 minutes ahead of serving time.
    3. 3
      If the butter has browned too much, pour it out and add another 2 tablespoons of butter to the pan. Add mushrooms, garlic and green onion, turn the heat to high and saute until the mushrooms just begin to soften. Add sherry, bring to a boil and reduce by half. Add cream, bring to a boil and reduce to a thick sauce. Taste for seasoning and adjust if necessary.
    4. 4
      Return chicken breasts to pan and turn to coat with sauce. Serve topped with mushrooms and sauce (and rice on the side, if desired).
