  • 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.

  • 18Add the mushroom and scallion mixture.
  • 19Add the chives and correct the seasoning.
