  6. Add shallots to drippings and saute until golden brown.
  7. Drain butter from shallots and reserve.
  8. Add brandy and wine and reduce to half its volume.

  11. Mix truffles and mushrooms, and divide into 2 portions.
  12. Place warm breasts on a serving dish.
  13. Top each breast with truffles and mushrooms.
  14. Pour sauce over breasts and cover with a glass cover.
