Ingredients

  • 1 package sliced mushrooms (2 packages if you really like mushrooms)
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 pound boneless chicken breasts, skinned and tenderized/flattened
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄4 cup cream sherry wine
  • 1 teaspoon beef bouillon dissolved in 4 Tbsp. warm water
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1⁄4 cup water

Directions

  • Using a large skillet, sauté mushrooms in 2 Tbsp. butter and lemon juice until just glazed.
  • Remove from skillet and set aside.
  • Place chicken between two sheets of wax paper and pound with the flat surface of a meat mallet.
  • Mix flour and salt together and then sprinkle over the tenderized chicken.
  • Melt remaining butter in the skillet along with the chicken. Cook, covered, over medium-high heat, turning once, until chicken is lightly browned, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Pour the wine and dissolved beef stock into the skillet, scraping free browned bits.
  • Add garlic and cook for 1 minute.
  • Dissolve the cornstarch in water and add to the skillet mixture, stir until thickened.
  • Return chicken and mushrooms to skillet. Cover and heat through. Use a meat thermometer to ensure internal temperature of the chicken is at least 165°F.
  • Serve hot and refrigerate leftovers for up to three days.
