Chicken Medallions With Sweet Sherry & Mushroom Sauce
photo by Lavender Lynn
- Ready In:
- 3⁄4 lb boneless skinless chicken breast (cut into thin 3-inch medallions)
- salt and pepper (to taste)
- 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour (to bread as needed)
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 (10 ounce) package white mushrooms, sliced
- 1⁄4 cup red onion, finely minced
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1⁄2 cup sweet sherry
- 1 cup prepared beef gravy (use mix or your favorite recipe)
- 2 tablespoons fresh chives, minced
- Season the chicken with salt and pepper, and dust with flour. Shake off any excess.
- Heat the half butter in a large skillet on medium-high until it stops bubbling.
- Add the chicken and cook for about 1 minute on each side until light golden.
- Transfer the chicken to a plate and keep warm.
- Without cleaning the pan (unless you prefer to do so, but not cleaning will add extra flavor to sauce) add the remaining butter, and heat on medium-high until it stops bubbling.
- Add the mushrooms, onion, and garlic. Sauté until the water released from the mushrooms evaporates.
- Remove pan from fire.
- Add half of the sherry, return to fire and boil for 1 minute.
- Add the gravy, and bring to a simmer.
- Return the chicken to the skillet along with the remaining sherry and the chives.
- Cook for about 3 minutes to heat through and serve.

Delicious, quick and very easy to prepare, and wonderfully clear instructions. The only thing that left me puzzled was the reference to 45 minutes cooking time at the top of the recipe. I halved the reipe for two of us, though I doubled the garlic (personal taste preference), and we enjoyed it with noodles. I rarely make gravy, so I used a commercial gravy mix. Loved the mushroom sauce. There wasn't a lot left over (just a small portion for my cat) so I cannot see the full amount serving six, even if there were several side-dishes, so if you are making this for six, I'd suggest using more chicken and slightly increasing all the other ingredients. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Michelle.
I REALLY like this recipe a whole lot. I changed it a bit to make it more healthy. I did not pan fry it, but broiled it. So I skipped the butter for frying and used PAM cooking spray and broiled each side of the chicken breast. I used margine instead of butter and usd low sodium leftover gravy. The sauce was SO good! I served this over brown rice for a great meal.
