Mushroom Rosemary Chicken

A quarter of a century ago my daughter briefly dated a spoiled rich kid with no values. (Don't get me started) The one good thing that came of this mother's nightmare was a doggie bag of leftovers from a top notch local restaurant. When I tasted it I knew I HAD to figure out how to make it. This recipe is delicious, easy AND fit for company!

Serves:

4 to 6

Ingredients

2 1/2 lb
boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 1/2 c
fresh sliced mushrooms
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp
olive oil
3 large
cloves of garlic
1 1/4 c
chopped onion (1 to 1 1/4 c)
fresh rosemary, 2 3 to 4" sprigs tied or wrapped in cheese cloth
3/4 c
dry white wine (not "cooking wine")
1/4 c
tomato paste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cube the chicken to bite sized pieces. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a large heavy pan and add half the chicken to the pan.
2
Saute until the chicken is just slightly browned on medium-high heat. Remove chicken and repeat with the remaining pieces. Set the chicken aside to be readded later.
3
Lower heat to medium. Remove and discard all but one Tblsp. of oil from pan. Add onion and garlic; cook stirring, until onion is softened. Add rosemary and mushroom slices.
4
Cook, stirring, until mushrooms are softened. Add wine and tomato paste, stir well.
5
Put the chicken back in the pan and stir well to coat the chicken with the sauce.
6
Cover pot and simmer over low heat for about 20 minutes. Check and stir to avoid scorching.
7
Remove lid and raise temperature to medium. Simmer a few minutes until sauce is reduced and thick.
8
Remove the rosemary and discard it. Serve the chicken and sauce over al dente pasta. A green salad or green veggie (I am partial to broccoli) and crusty bread is a great addition.
