This protein-packed, sherry-braised chicken and mushroom recipe is nutritious and ready in less than 30 minutes. Between family obligations, kids’ homework, errands and appointments, today is harder than ever to find time to cook. This recipe combines seared chicken with mushrooms for a healthy and quick meal that will satisfy your hunger, and it will provide all the protein you need in less than 30 minutes. The combination of dry sherry and mushrooms will create the perfect flavor to make your mouth water. Pair it with a spinach salad and brown rice and have a healthy, complete meal for any night of the week.

You’ll need:

  • 1 pound chicken breast tenders
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • small amount of flour, for dredging
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 a small onion
  • 2 celery stalks, thinly sliced on a diagonal
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry or white wine
  • 1/4 cup dried tarragon

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Spread flour on a flat work surface. Dip chicken in flour on both sides, set aside, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, then add oil. When hot, add chicken in a single layer and brown on one side. Turn chicken over, continue cooking until cooked through, about 6-7 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate, cover to keep warm, and set aside.
  3. Add mushrooms, onion and celery to skillet. Cook, stirring, until vegetables are tender, about 5-7 minutes.
  4. Add broth, sherry and tarragon, and raise heat to high. Cook and stir until sauce is reduced and thickened to a few tablespoons, about 2 minutes.
  5. Return chicken to the pan and stir gently to coat with the sherry glaze.
