Sure, it's only slightly different than Chicken Marsala but it is a great change!
"Simple and delicious! I have made this twice so far.Once with the chicken dredged in flour as directed in the recipe and once with the chicken breaded as discussed in the previous reviews and as shown in the photo. I thought both versions were equally tasty while my wife preferred the original 'lighter' flour dredged version. Our little one preferred sucking on the mushrooms and rubbing the sauce into her hair :-)"- Skeeter77

Top-ranked recipe named "Sauteed Chicken Breast with Sherried Mushroom Cream Sauce"
Season chicken breast halves with salt and pepper to taste. I like to season them before beating them to 1/4 inch thickness. Dredge in flour until thoroughly coated and then set aside. Heat butter and olive oil to high heat (but not to where butter starts to burn) in a large skillet and add breast to the pan. Cook four minutes per side and remove to a 200 degree oven.
Reserve 1 tablespoon of oil in skillet and add shallots, cooking them over medium heat for 1 minute. Add mushrooms (I prefer porcini [baby bellas]) and cook for about 3 minutes or until softened and lightly browned. Deglaze skillet with the sherry. Continue cooking until the sherry has almost totally evaporated.
Add cream (I let it come to room temp while preparing everything else) and chicken stock. Bring to a boil and simmer about 5 minutes. This should reduce until thick enough to lightly coat a spoon.
Add nutmeg, parsley, and lemon juice (yeah, I had reservations about adding lemon juice to cream, but it did not curdle).
Spoon the sauce over chicken and serve immediately.
This went very well with Green Bean Almond Rice (Big Oven Recipe 93087).

Mrsswill 11 month agoWe've made this several times. For ourselves and for company. We love it and our company jut raved about it! I've also made it gluten free with multi purpose gluten free flour. The gravy desires a little more liquid in that version, but. It was still delicious!

rommulus 2 years agovery tasty
Mentok 3 years agoFantastic! My wife couldn't believe that I made it. She said it was restaurant quality. Only change that I made was to double the recipe. Served with Texmati brown & wild rice and Steamed Broccoli on the side.
bradrobster 3 years agoWow...This was awesome!, used granulated onion and garlic on the mushrooms..worked great...as cream/stock starts to thicken at the end, keep tasting. I added extra salt and pepper. I actually got it a bit too thick...I wanted more sauce to go over my side of rice!.. This is great, will make it again..and will try with pork and thin beef steaks too!

Mrsswill 3 years agoThis recipe is AMAZING! It's our new favorite recipe!
dnanez 3 years agoReally good, but would probably be better with pork like suggested. I simmered the sauce about 20 minutes, to thicken it up and give it more color. Father-in-law said it was worthy of a blue ribbon. thanks for posting.
Jerrycho 3 years agoBrilliant. Loving it. Worth trying.

jpeek60 3 years agoI just took over the cooking in our family and this was my first recipe. The family was impressed and really liked it. Easy to make, and it turned out just like the photo
loridale11 3 years agoExcellent. Easy to do. Served with mashed potatoes and veggies. Will definitely make again.
chefhoward76 4 years agoAn excellent recipe! We served it over simple white rice, a salad of greens and hot rolls. Basically, this quick and easy recipe made a great dinner.
captaindes 5 years agoWOW!! This was a great way to make chicken. I loved it and didn't change a thing. I kinda wished the sauce at the end was a bit thicker, but admit I could have accomplished that with a little patience. I just couldn't wait any longer...it smelled so good. My German exchange student loved it too...and he is quite the picky eater. Can't wait to try it with pork cutlets as has been suggested.
sgrishka 6 years agoThe appearance of the photo not matching this recipe is my fault...in my previous rating of this recipe and posting of the photo, I failed to mention that I didn't just dredge the chicken in flour, I breaded it (my personal taste that day). After gently pounding the chicken breast into cutlets and dredging in flour, I dipped them (both sides) in a mixture of 2 eggs beaten with 1 tbsp. oil, letting excess drip off (to ensure very thin coating), then dipped both sides in bread crumbs, pressing crumbs with fingers to form an even coating. I set cutlets in a single layer on wire rack for about 5 minutes to allow coating to dry while the skillet with the butter and olive oil heated up. Either way, simply dredged in flour or breaded, this is a great recipe! Sorry for any confusion.
lncnhwyfan 6 years agoWe didn't get it to come out like the picture, but everyone enjoyed it. The chicken was tender and moist, the sauce flavorful. It goes very well with angel hair pasta. Another recipe added to our family favorites.
sgrishka 6 years agoA terrific, company worthy recipe with a wonderful blend of flavors. I will definitely be making this again.
swibirun 7 years agoThis also works great using thin pork cutlets instead of chicken. In fact, we all thought it was better with pork. Just reduce to cooking time to about a minute per side (our cutlets were less than 1/2 inch thick).
