The secret to a good cream sauce is always the same: not too much cream or it can be overpowering, masking the more delicate flavors. Here it contains a bountiful amount of mushrooms and is served over chicken breasts.

Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Breasts with Mushroom Cream Sauce

10 ounce boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon canola oil
3 tbsp shallot, minced
1 cup shiitake mushroom caps, thinly sliced
2 tablespoon dry white wine
1/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoon heavy cream
2 tablespoon scallion, minced

Recipe Directions for Chicken Breasts 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 tent 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 vermouth (or wine); simmer until almost evaporated, scraping up any browned bits, about 1 minute. Pour in broth and cook until reduced by 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.
