Ingredients

3 cloves garlic, minced
2 shallots, chopped

How to make Chicken with Garlic Mushroom Sauce

Step 1: After slicing the chicken breasts lengthwise, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook in olive oil over medium heat until both sides are golden. Transfer to a plate when done.

Step 2: Add the mushrooms to the now-empty pan along with chopped rosemary, salt, and pepper. Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes over medium heat until the mushrooms are brown. Then, add the chopped shallots and minced garlic. Continue to cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes.

Step 3: Stir in a heaped tablespoon of flour, then pour in the white wine. Deglaze the pan using a spatula. Next, add the chicken stock, double/heavy cream, add 1 tablespoon mustard. Stir well.

Step 4: Return the chicken breasts to the pan along with the juices. Bring the sauce to a boil, then adjust the heat to low. Simmer everything for about 10 minutes. If needed, season with extra salt and pepper.

Notes:

1. Sub 2 shallots with white onion.

2. Use thyme or tarragon instead of rosemary.

3. Swap the white wine with a mixture of the apple of white grape juice plus 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar.
