Tender and juicy chicken breasts smothered in garlic mushroom sauce is comfort food that could be in front of you in just 30 minutes!
The ingredients for this dish are quite simple but work like magic when put together with a bit of loving care.
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
- salt and pepper
- 250g/80z button mushrooms, halved or sliced
- 2 shallots, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 sprigs rosemary or 1 tsp dried rosemary
- 1 tbsp flour
- 80ml ¼cup dry white wine
- 80ml¼cup chicken stock
- 375ml/1.5 cups double/heavy cream
- 1 tsbp wholegrain mustard or dijon mustard
Slice chicken breasts lengthwise, salt and pepper and brown on both sides in olive oil on medium heat until golden. Remove to a plate. (At this point chicken will not be cooked all the way through.)
To the same pan add the mushrooms together with chopped rosemary, salt and pepper and brown the mushrooms over medium heat for 2-3 minutes, add the chopped shallots and minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes longer. Add a heaped tablespoon of flour and stir to combine. Then add the white wine and scrape the bottom of the pan with a spatula to release the brown bits into the liquid. Pour in chicken stock, double/heavy cream, add 1 tbsp of mustard and stir to combine.
Then add the chicken breasts together with the juices they released back to the pan, and bring the sauce to a boil, then lower the heat to low and let it simmer for 10 minutes. Taste the sauce and add more salt and pepper if necessary.
