Why I Love This Recipe
This chicken and mushroom dish could be served over noodles or rice, or just enjoyed on its own with a nice crusty bread.
Half-and-half, is a simple blend of equal parts whole milk and light cream. It averages 10 to 12% fat, which is more than milk but less than light cream.
Ingredients You'll Need
2 tbsp butter
1 lb chicken breasts boneless and skinless cut in half lengthwise
salt and pepper to taste
1 medium onion chopped
3 cloves garlic minced
12 oz white mushrooms sliced, 340 g
1 tbsp all-purpose flour
1/4 cup white wine
1 1/2 cups half and half
parsley for garnish
Add the butter to a large skillet and melt over medium high heat.
Season chicken breasts on both sides with salt and pepper. Place chicken breasts in skillet and cook on both sides, about 5 min per side or until no longer pink inside. Remove chicken from skillet.
Add onion and garlic to skillet and cook for a couple minutes until onion is translucent and soft. Add mushrooms and stir. Season mushrooms generously with salt and pepper. Let cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. When mushrooms are cooked to your liking sprinkle the flour over the mushrooms and stir. Add wine and cook off the wine for a couple more minutes. Add half and half, stir and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally or until sauce reduces a bit and thickens.
Garnish with parsley and serve hot.
