How To Make chicken breasts in mushroom sauce

  • 1
    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.
  • 2
    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.
