How to Make Chicken Breasts in Chive Cream


  • 1Combine 1 tablespoon flour and 1 tablespoon sweet butter on a small flat plate and blend the mixture with a fork into a very smooth paste.

  • 3In a small skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of butter.
  • 4Add the scallions and cook for 2 or 3 minutes without browning.
  • 5Add the mushrooms.
  • 6Season with salt and pepper and cook the mixture over high heat for 2 or 3 more minutes to brown the mushrooms lightly.
  • 7Reserve.
  • 8Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper and sprinkle them with lemon juice.
  • 9In a large chicken fryer, melt the remaining butter.
  • 10When it is quite hot, add the chicken breasts and cook them for 1 minute on each side.
  • 11Cover the pan with buttered wax paper and then the pan lid.
  • 12Lower the heat and simmer the chicken breasts for another 8 to 10 minutes or until the juices run out pale yellow when pierced with a fork.
  • 13Do not overcook or pierce every piece.
  • 14Immediately remove the chicken breasts to a serving platter.
  • 15Pour the chicken stock into the fryer, raise the heat and reduce the stock until it is almost a glaze.
  • 16Add the heavy cream and continue cooking over high heat.
  • 17Add the Beurre Manie and cook until the sauce heavily coats a spoon.
  • 18Add the mushroom and scallion mixture.
  • 19Add the chives and correct the seasoning.
  • 20Pour the sauce over the chicken breasts and serve at once.
  • 21These butter-flour balls (beurre manie) can be made ahead in advance and stored in a sealed jar in the refrigerator for 1 or 2 weeks.
