Chicken With Mushrooms & Lemon Sauce

READY IN: 1hr 20mins




  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 2T butter, add mushrooms, onions and garlic. Saute' for 5 minutes or less. *DO NOT overcook!
  • Transfer mushrooms and onions, set aside.
  • Combine flour and spices in a ziploc bag. Add chicken one piece at a time to coat. Save the excess seasoned flour.
  • In skillet over medium heat, add 2 T butter and brown chicken. (*I add olive oil to prevent the butter from burning).
  • Transfer browned chicken to casserole dish and top with mushrooms and onions.
  • Sauce: (*I double sauce recipe).
  • Add 1 - 2 T of butter to skillet, melt over low/medium heat.
  • Add reserved flour (may need a bit more) to the butter and whisk until well blended.
  • Add stock, wine and lemon juice. Whisk until smooth and slightly thick. Pour over chicken & mushrooms. Top with capers.
  • Cover and bake for 30-40 minutes until chicken no longer pink. *Baking time will depend on how thick the chicken breasts are.
  • Serve over rice (*Basmati is my favorite).
  • NOTES: Recipe can easily be doubled. I often double the sauce cuz everyone loves a good sauce over their rice.
  • If doubling, I would suggest NOT doubling the amount of lemon juice but feel free to add more chicken stock and wine to thin the sauce before cooking.
