Royal Chicken Breast in Moscato Cream Sauce

Rose Mary Mogan


I created this recipe today for our dinner. The original version of this recipe came from my CULINARY ARTS INSTITUTE POLISH COOKBOOK.

I did add a few ingredients & changed the recipe around to CREATE THIS VERSION.

Muscato Wine is one of my 8 brothers favorite wines,& since I do not drink, I decided to cook with mine, & use it in this recipe.

The original recipe called for EITHER SOUR CREAM OR a WINE, but I chose to use BOTH, & also added some sweet red peppers in the process. The sauce was thick, creamy & quite tasty.

You can serve it over pasta, potatoes, or rice. GREAT FLAVOR

How to Make Royal Chicken Breast in Moscato Cream Sauce


  • 1PLEASE NOTE: That you can use smaller pieces of chicken, or use a whole cut up chicken for this recipe. Also you can cut the sauce portion of this recipe in half, I had to double the quanities because the portions were so large.
  • 2Wash and arrange chicken parts on a large platter.
  • 3Season with garlic powder on both sides.
  • 4Then season with the Montreal Chicken Seasoning on both sides.
  • 5Heat olive oil and Butter in a large 16 inch skillet,over medium high heat or you made need to do in several batches.
  • 6Slice onions and add to skillet when oil & butter is hot.
  • 7Then add the sliced mushrooms, and stir when they begin to cook.
  • 8Then add seasoned chicken parts to skillet with the skin side down, pushing vegetables aside so chicken can touch the bottom of the skillet. Cook till chicken is browned on one side, the turn over to cook other side and continue cooking.
  • 9Stir vegetables around in skillet & move chicken around in skillet to prevent it from sticking or burning.
  • 10Sprinkle paprika lightly on chicken if desired to aid in browning. Continue to cook, it will create some liquid in the skillet from the moisture in the vegetables.
  • 11If not enough liquid is in skillet to prevent chicken from sticking,add 2 cups of hot water, and continue to cook for about 35 to 45 minutes till chicken becomes tender some of that liquid should evaporate as it cooks.
  • 12Turn fire off (as a safety precaution) while you add the Moscato wine & red Bell pepper strips to the skillet. Then turn fire back on, and continue to cook chicken about 5 to 10 additional minutes.
  • 13Remove chicken from skillet to a large platter.
  • 14Combine flour with the sour cream in a small bowl. Give the liquid in skillet about 5 minutes to cool down somewhat, so that it is not to hot when you add the sour cream or it will COAGULATE.(CURDLE)
  • 15SO GRADUALLY ADD THE SOUR CREAM MIXTURE TO THE HOT LIQUID A LITTLE AT A TIME. Whisking as you go to prevent it from curdling. Repeat until you have added ALL of the sour cream.
  • 16Return Chicken to skillet & cover with a tight lid and heat on VERY low for 2 to 3 minutes ONLY IF CHICKEN HAS GOTTEN COLD.
  • 17Serve with potatoes, pasta or rice.

Chicken is my go-to when I just can't figure out what to make for dinner. Whenever I find myself wondering what to make, I grab a package at the market...
