Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4 to 6
Ingredients
  • 4 - 6 chicken breasts
  • ¼ cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 pound sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup white wine
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ⅓ cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
Instructions
  1. Combine the flour, salt and pepper. Coat the chicken breasts with flour mixture.
  2. Heat the oil and butter in a large frying pan and brown the chicken on both sides - about 10 minutes. Lower the heat and continue to cook the chicken until it is cooked and tender - about 20 to 30 minutes. Remove to a serving platter and keep warm.
  3. Add the mushrooms to the pan, adding a little more butter if necessary. Cook the mushrooms for about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the stock, lemon juice, and wine to the pan and bring to a boil, scraping any bits from the bottom of the pan. Continue to cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Lower heat and stir in the cream and nutmeg. Continue to cook until the sauce is slightly thickened.
  5. Pour sauce over top of the chicken on the serving platter and sprinkle with parsley.
