Chicken Breasts with Mushroom Cream Sauce Recipe

– 2 4 oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts
– 1 tbsp canola oil
– 1 large shallot, minced
– 2 garlic cloves, minced
– 1 cup shitake mushroom caps, thinly sliced
– ¼ cup dry white wine
– 1/4 cup fat free chicken broth
– 2 tbsp fat free sour cream
– ¼ cup scallions, minced
– 1 tbsp fresh chives, minced
– 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
– 1/2 tsp salt

Season chicken with pepper and salt on both sides. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning once or twice and adjusting the heat to prevent burning, until brown and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°F, 12 to 16 minutes. Transfer to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm. Add shallot and garlic to the pan and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 2 minutes. Pour in wine simmer until almost evaporated, scraping up any browned bits, about 1-2 minutes. Add in broth and cook until reduced by half, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in sour cream and chives and scallions; return to a simmer. Return the chicken to the pan, turn to coat with sauce and cook until heated through, about 1 minute.

  1. what do you think would happen flavor wise if I only had some red wine instead of white.

  2. Oh my Yumminess!! This is SO GREAT! Thank you so much. They sauce was a little tan colored, but that means it is full of flavor

  3. I made this, very tasty, but the sauce looks brown, not white and creamy like the photo. Did I do something wrong?

  4. wonderful! thank you. The next time I make this I would like to add a wedge of laughing cow swiss cheese. what would the new points plus value be?
