This is one of our favorite chicken dishes, hubby and the kids ooohhh and ahhhhh over it, so here's what we had for dinner.
Chicken in Cream Sauce
4 chicken breasts, skinless
1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup butter or margarine
8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
1/3 cup white wine or chicken broth
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley or 2 tablespoons dried parsley
3/4 cup whipping cream
In a bowl mix flour, salt and pepper
Coat chicken well, shake off excess
In a large skillet melt the butter, add the chicken and cook until brown on both sides and fully cooked through.
If you're using thin breasts they should take about 3 to 4 minutes on each side.....I'm using pretty thick ones so I let them cook for about 10 to 15 minutes.
Remove the chicken and set aside, add the mushrooms and wine or chicken stock to the skillet, cook for about 2 minutes
Add parsley and the whipping cream, cook over low heat stirring continually until sauce thickens, about 2 minutes.
Serve sauce over chicken.
YUM, I tell you it may sound simple but it's SO good, the chicken remains juicy and tender and it's just amazing with some garlic mashed potatoes.
