Winner winner, chicken dinner!!
What to do with chicken? Pound it thin, add mushrooms and garlic and voila….. a dinner to write home about! Hubby and I both love chicken especially since there is so many ways to cook it. I have always loved chicken scallopini however Hubby is not always to keen on the lemon flavors traditionally found here. I found a great recipe on JBugs Kitchen Antics that does not use a ton of lemon or capers. With a bit of “Lorification,” I made a chicken scallopini dinner that was sure to please both of us.
Chicken Scallopini with Mushrooms
Heat 2 tablespoons butter and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium high heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally until mushrooms are browned.
Add garlic and onion and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside. Add remaining butter and olive oil to pan and heat until butter is melted. Meanwhile, season pounded chicken thigh pieces on both sides with salt and pepper and dredge in flour, shaking off excess. Cook until golden brown on both sides.
Add sage and nutmeg and return mushrooms to the pan.
Season with coarse ground black pepper. Add pinot or marsala wine, cherry tomatoes and chicken stock. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove lid from pan and stir in sour cream. Bring back to a boil, sprinkle with lemon zest. Serve immediately. I served it with angel hair pasta and a side salad. Garnish with parsley.
Makes 4 delicious servings. Two for us tonight, and two for our lunch tomorrow.
