Directions See How It's Made
- Rinse chicken & pat dry.
- Combine in shallow dish flour & pepper; dredge chicken until coated.
- In large heavy skillet, heat oil and cook breasts until nicely browned on one side (about 3 minutes); turn to other side.
- Add garlic cloves to skillet; sprinkle mushrooms over chicken. Continue cooking, moving mushrooms & chicken so they cook evenly (about 3 minutes). Add lemon juice, broth, bay leaf & thyme. Cover & cook on low heat until cooked through, about 10 additional minutes.
- Transfer chicken to warm serving platter and increase heat to medium-high. Cook sauce, stirring occasionally, until reduced by 1/2; discard garlic & bay leaf and skim any fat from top.
- Spoon sauce & mushrooms over chicken; garnish & serve - Enjoy!
- Optional garnishes: lemon slices, thyme sprigs or spinach leaves.
