A quarter of a century ago my daughter briefly dated a spoiled rich kid with no values. (Don't get me started) The one good thing that came of this mother's nightmare was a doggie bag of leftovers from a top notch local restaurant. When I tasted it I knew I HAD to figure out how to make it. This recipe is delicious, easy AND fit for company!

How To Make mushroom rosemary chicken

  • 1
    Cube the chicken to bite sized pieces. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a large heavy pan and add half the chicken to the pan.
  • 2
    Saute until the chicken is just slightly browned on medium-high heat. Remove chicken and repeat with the remaining pieces. Set the chicken aside to be readded later.
  • 3
    Lower heat to medium. Remove and discard all but one Tblsp. of oil from pan. Add onion and garlic; cook stirring, until onion is softened. Add rosemary and mushroom slices.
  • 4
    Cook, stirring, until mushrooms are softened. Add wine and tomato paste, stir well.
  • 5
    Put the chicken back in the pan and stir well to coat the chicken with the sauce.
  • 6
    Cover pot and simmer over low heat for about 20 minutes. Check and stir to avoid scorching.
  • 7
    Remove lid and raise temperature to medium. Simmer a few minutes until sauce is reduced and thick.

    Remove the rosemary and discard it. Serve the chicken and sauce over al dente pasta. A green salad or green veggie (I am partial to broccoli) and crusty bread is a great addition.
