Tip: It?s difficult to find an individual chicken breast small enough for one portion. Removing the thin strip of meat from the underside of a 5-ounce breast?the ?tender??removes about 1 ounce of meat and yields a perfect 4-ounce portion. Wrap and freeze the tenders and when you have gathered enough, use them in a stir-fry or for oven-baked chicken fingers.

Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Breast with Mushroom Cream Sauce

30 ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed and tenders removed(see Tip)
1 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoon canola oil
30 g shallots, 3 medium size, minced
3 cup thinly sliced shiitake mushroom caps
6 tablespoons dry white wine or dry vermouth
3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
6 tablespoons heavy cream
6 tablespoons fresh chives or scallion greens, minced

Recipe Directions for Chicken Breast with Mushroom Cream Sauce

  1. Season chicken with pepper and salt on both sides.

  2. 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 165F, 12 to 16 minutes. Transfer to a plate and tnet with foil to keep warm.

  3. Add shallot to the pan and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 2 minutes. Pour in wine(or vermouth); simmer until almost evaporated, scraping up any browned bits, about 1 minute. Pour in broth and cook until reduced to half, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in cream and chives(or scallions); return to a simmer. Return the chicken to the pan, turn to coat with sauce and cook until heated through, about 1 minute.
