Easy Chicken with Mushrooms

Servings: 6

Total: 30 minutes


  • 4 boneless chicken breasts, each weighing 6-7 ounces, lightly pounded and halved
  • 1 cup flour seasoned with salt and pepper
  • 12 ounces thinly sliced Cremini mushrooms
  • 2 chopped shallots
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary
  • 1  1/2 cup homemade chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil


Place the oil in a large skillet (14 inches) over medium high heat.

Dredge the chicken in the flour and knock loose any excess.

Brown one side of the chicken (about 4-5 minutes), flip and brown the other side (about 3 minutes). Reserve chicken to a plate.

Add the mushrooms, rosemary and shallots to the pan. Once browned, add the stock.

Bring liquids to a boil, then simmer on low. Add the chicken back to the pan, cooking the liquids down around the chicken to a tight sauce. This will take roughly 10 to 15 minutes.

Season and serve.
