Diana's awesome Master Chef worthy mushroom sauce
This was Wednesday night’s dinner at Chez Meder/Wallace
Normally when I decide to make chicken any other way but BBQ’ed…it always involves a can of mushroom soup. Well, since Bob and I are trying to eat better these days, canned soup is not making the cut on the menu. So I Googled ‘healthy chicken recipes’ and came up with this one.
It was pretty delicious and not very difficult although it does take a bit of time in prep and standing at the stove. If you’re looking for a quick and easy dinner tonight…this ISN’T it…but if you love to cook and have a bit of time before you have to get it on the plate..its well worth the prep time.
4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
2 teaspoons canola oil
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup chopped shallots
1 (8-ounce) package pre-sliced mushrooms
2 minced garlic cloves
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
3/4 cup fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme
1. Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap, and pound to 1/2-inch thickness using a meat mallet or small heavy skillet.
2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add canola oil to pan; swirl to coat. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Add chicken to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Transfer chicken to a serving platter; keep warm.
3. Add shallots and mushrooms to pan; sauté for 4 minutes or until browned, stirring occasionally. Add garlic; sauté for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in wine, scraping pan to loosen browned bits; bring to a boil. Cook until liquid almost evaporates. Sprinkle mushroom mixture with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and flour; cook 30 seconds, stirring frequently. Add broth to pan; bring to a boil. Cook 2 minutes or until slightly thick. Remove pan from heat; add butter and thyme, stirring until butter melts. Serve with chicken.
