Make an easy chicken dish topped with a savory mushroom sauce for a tasty meal that's ready in minutes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap, and pound to 1/2-inch thickness using a meat mallet or small heavy skillet.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add canola oil to pan; swirl to coat. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Add chicken to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Transfer chicken to a serving platter; keep warm.

Step 3

Add shallots and mushrooms to pan; sauté for 4 minutes or until browned, stirring occasionally. Add garlic; sauté for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in wine, scraping pan to loosen browned bits; bring to a boil. Cook until liquid almost evaporates. Sprinkle mushroom mixture with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and flour; cook 30 seconds, stirring frequently. Add broth to pan; bring to a boil. Cook 2 minutes or until slightly thick. Remove pan from heat; add butter and thyme, stirring until butter melts. Serve with chicken.

Simple, easy and delicious! I did't have white wine, so I used a little red wine instead- it was SOOOOO delicious! Easy clean-up, since it only uses one skillet. I would definitely make this again, both for every day (this was a busy Wednesday night) or for guests. Served with black japonica rice, on which I drizzled a little of the sauce. Thanks!

This sounds like good changes but gets a bit confusing on the order when u add the seared mushroom change.

Great and so quick and easy

I made this for 2 of us and made the full recipe with less chicken. This is enough for 3 servings. I followed the recipe except put more shallots than called for and wouldn't do that again. I had chicken cutlets in the freezer and they didn't need pounding and just a quick fry in the pan so as to not overcook!  I would use more chicken broth next time to stretch the sauce. As it is, it would be skimpy for 4 people. I served over mashed potatoes.

I thought was a really tasty recipe to start from. However, I agree it needs "something". We added lemon juice at the end. I agree capers would work, I can even agree with the person suggesting bacon. At any rate this sauce is a great starting point.

Outstanding! I made it exactly according to the recipe. Very easy, with ingredients I always have on hand. DH loved it a d wants it "in the rotation". I am always looking for a tasty after-work easy meal, nd this is perfect. Don't forget the thyme. It adds the final touch.
