How to Make chicken breasts in mushroom sauce
- Combine flour, salt and pepper in medium bowl. Dredge chicken in flour mixture.
Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in large skillet over medium heat. Sauté chicken until cooked through, about 10-12 minutes per side. Set aside and cover to keep warm.
- Add remaining tablespoon of butter to pan (do not use a new pan or wash it, there is a lot of taste already in the pan, you don't want to wash it away!!). Sauté onions in butter until just starting to brown, about 2 minutes, then add mushrooms. Continue cooking until mushrooms soften and reduce in size, about 5 minutes. Add wine and reduce to simmer.
- Mix corn starch in chicken broth and add to pan. Season with thyme, salt and pepper, adjusting to taste. Let simmer until gravy thickens. Spoon over chicken.
