DIRECTIONS

  • 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 using the oil that remains, sauté 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.
