Total Time: 30

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2-1/2 to 3 cups whole morel mushrooms (or 10 ounces dried)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 teaspoon table salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large cloves garlic, chopped
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped, with a pinch reserved for garnish

Instructions:

Clean, stem, and slice mushrooms. Set aside.
In a large, heavy-bottomed skillet, heat butter and oil on medium-high heat.
Sprinkle salt and pepper over chicken breasts. In a shallow bowl, dredge breasts in flour. Shake off excess; then place chicken in hot skillet. Cook without moving until browned on one side (about 3 minutes); then flip and brown other side. Reduce heat to medium.
Add garlic and mushrooms. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are golden and fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add wine and increase heat to high. Cook until wine has reduced by half, about 5 minutes.
Lower heat to medium and slowly stir in cream and all but a generous pinch of thyme. When chicken is cooked through (cut to test), remove from heat. Just before serving, squeeze lemon juice over chicken, check seasonings, and garnish with reserved thyme.

    I substituted chicken broth with a couple tablespoons lemon juice for the wine. We loved it!
