Okay, I've now made a convert of my b/f who loves everything I've made from the 'Zaar. We made this for dinner the other night and really liked it! I'm afraid that with the side dishes I was making and everything coming to a head at one time, I didn't exactly measure the sherry - so sue me - but it came out perfectly, anyway. We had it with brown rice and the combination of flavors was yummy. Thanks for the great new favorite!
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 2 large portabella mushroom caps, stems removed
- 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tablespoons onions, very finely diced
- 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, minced
- 6 tablespoons dry sherry
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
Directions See How It's Made
- Trim fat and sinew from chicken breasts; pound to 1/2" thickness.
- Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in large saute pan; cook chicken breasts about 5-6 minutes per side, or until nicely browned and cooked through; set aside and keep warm.
- Slice mushrooms into pieces about 3/8" thick; have ready to saute.
- Add mushrooms and cook until mushrooms become tender, 5 minutes or so, adding a little more butter if necessary; add rosemary just as mushrooms are becoming done.
- Stir in dry sherry and cook for 30 seconds or so, stirring up any bits from bottom of pan; add the cream, half the parsley, the black pepper, and cook for 30- 45 seconds more, until warmed through.
- Note: this sauce has sliced mushrooms in it, but if you prefer a creamier sauce, simply use a hand blender and puree the sauce in the pan and strain if desired, or pour it carefully into a blender and do the same.
- To serve, place chicken on serving plate and spoon creamy rosemary sauce over chicken.
