Contest-Winning Chicken with Mushroom Sauce Recipe

Contest-Winning Chicken with Mushroom Sauce Recipe

It looks impressive, but this mouthwatering dish comes together in no time. I think its flavor rivals that of many full-fat entrees found in fancy restaurants.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup fat-free milk
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 medium onion, sliced and separated into rings
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-fat butter
  • 1/4 cup sherry or chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and milk until smooth; set aside. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. In a large nonstick skillet, cook chicken in oil over medium heat for 5-6 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. Remove and keep warm.
  • 2. In the same skillet, saute mushrooms and onion in butter until tender. Stir in the sherry or broth, salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Stir cornstarch mixture, add to the pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with chicken. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with Land O'Lakes light stick butter.
