Elegant dinner – with very little fuss!

If you want something that looks like you took forever making it – but didn’t – this is it.  It would be great for a dinner party or dinner in your pajamas.

Try omitting the mushrooms and using broccoli – sounds good to me!



Vegetable cooking spray
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
4 tablespoons flour
Kosher salt and black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup white wine
1/3 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup shredded or grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Coat a long baking dish with vegetable spray. Cut each breast half in half again lengthwise. Place each piece between heavy plastic wrap and pound flat to 1/8-inch thickness. Sprinkle very lightly with salt and black pepper and dredge lightly in flour.

In a large skillet over medium heat melt half of the butter with half of the olive oil. Add half of the chicken pieces and cook for 4 minutes or until golden and crispy, turning once. Transfer to baking dish and repeat with remaining butter, oil and chicken. To skillet add the mushrooms; cook and stir until tender. Add wine and broth and bring to a boil. Boil gently 5 minutes or until mixture is reduced to half and thickened; pour over chicken. Sprinkle with mozzarella, Parmesan and green onions. Bake, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes. Makes 6 servings.

    This one turned out great! I used a little more mozzarella but I wanted more goo. Hubby thinks we should try mixing some spinach into the cheese on top hmmm?
