I don’t have a lot of experience cooking meat, so I decided to make some relatively simple recipes I found in September’s Everyday Food just to level up a bit. Chicken with Mushrooms turned out really well and was quite tasty both fresh and left over. I definitely want to make it again.
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 lbs chicken cutlets
- salt and pepper
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 3 tbsp unsalted butter, divided
- 2 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
- 1 lb button mushrooms, trimmed and quartered
- 1/4 cup dry white wine
- 1/4 cup chicken broth
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
- Place flour in a shallow dish. Season chicken with salt and pepper, then coat with flour, shaking off excess.
- In a large skillet, heat oil and 1 tbsp butter over medium-high. In batches, cook chicken until browned and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and tent loosely with foil.
- Reduce heat to medium, add thyme, mushrooms, and remaining 2 tbsp butter, and cook until softened, 6 minutes.
- Add wine and broth and cook, stirring, until reduced by half, 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Return chicken to pan along with any accumulated juices; top with parsley.
