How to Make Chicken with Creamy Mushroom Sauce


  • 1Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper and then dredge in flour, shaking off the excess flour. Set aside.
  • 2Melt the 4 Tbsp butter in a large skillet over medium heat, saute the chicken until fully cooked & browned on both sides ( 170 to 175 degrees F)
    Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  • 3Prepare the sauce:
    In the same skillet, melt the 2 Tbsp butter and add the sliced onions and stir until slightly caramelized. Then add in the sliced mushrooms, stir until lightly browned.
  • 4Add the chicken broth and continue cooking until it boils, then reduce the heat.
    Add a little hot broth to the slurry and mix it well to avoid lumps.
    Pour the slurry mixture into the broth & mushrooms, stirring constantly. Continue cooking until the sauce bubbles & thickens.
  • 5Add the heavy cream and stir to combine.
    Stir in the cooking sherry and lemon juice.
    Season with salt and pepper to taste, continue to simmer for 5 mins., stirring occasionally to avoid sticking to the pan.
  • 6Place the chicken breast on a plate and pour the mushroom sauce over the top. Serve hot.
