Just finished this for dinner - really, really good! My husband scraped the pan to get all the final yummy sauce. The only changes I made were to use a Vidalia onion cut into quarters instead of pearl onion and to add minced garlic. Served with rice and green beans. I will definitely make this again.
Chicken Cutlets with Mushrooms and Pearl Onions
The brandy-spiked sauce adds an elegant touch to this simple supper; you can sub wine.
