Yet this is so fast, easy and delicious you can make it on any busy weeknight or serve it up at your best dinner party! They just won't know what hit 'em!
- 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
- 6 green onions, chopped, green and white parts
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 cup dry white wine or 1 cup chicken broth
- 1 tablespoon butter, use real butter for best flavor
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons cold water
- Season chicken breast as desired. I like salt and pepper but you could add any dried herbs you like as well. Heat oil in a large skillet and brown chicken breasts on both sides. Cover and cook until juices run clear. About 6-10 minutes, depending on thickness. Remove chicken and keep warm. If you find you need more oil use some cooking spray instead if you want to keep the fat and calories down.
- In the same skillet and remaining oil, saute mushrooms until tender. Add garlic and onions- green and white parts- and cook for a few minutes just to get them aromatic and cooked a little. About 2-3 minutes.
- Add butter and when it's melted stir in wine or broth- I recommend wine! -. (Personally I use one cup broth and one cup wine. I like Pinot Grigio but anything that isn't sweet is good!)
- In a small cup combine water and cornstarch and stir until smooth and dissolved. Add to skillet when broth starts to bubble.
- Cook and stir, keeping it just at a bubble until desired thickness. About 2-3 minutes.
- Return chicken to pan and heat through. Taste for seasoning and add some salt and pepper to taste if desired.
- Serve over rice, noodles or mashed potatoes.
- NOTE: If you want even more sauce add 1 more cup of chicken broth to the wine or broth in step 3. Want the sauce thicker? Add more cornstarch in step 4.
This was very good and quite pretty, but I did make some changes. I only used 1/4 t of salt. While I cooked the chicken, I put oregano, rosemary and parsley in the wine to soak. I used unsalted butter and put pepper on the chicken before browning. I thought it came out delicious. I served it over brown rice with a side of asparagus. Oh and I used spanish onions as that was all I had on hand and sliced them.....still lovely and very tasty. I used cooking wine also....Goya dry white wine (cooking) I was happy with the results. I don't drink wine (more of a beer girl :) ), so that was all I had on hand! Thanks for posting, will definitely make this again!
This was very simple to prepare and the result was the taste of a sophisticated meal! I served it along a pilaf and garlic spiked spinach. You would have never have known this was a dietetic meal by the taste. My wife loved it and I will be preparing this for large dinner parties. Thanks for sharing!
Really easy to make and tasted delicious. I didn't have white wine so I used red wine and it turned out fantastic!! Thanks for posting
