Chicken in Cream Sauce!

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

Serves 4

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.
