Recipe Notes

  • Two and a half pounds of chicken breasts is about four to five large breasts.
  • You can use a variety of mushrooms in this chicken recipe.

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper and dredge both sides in flour. Heat 3 tablespoons of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once oil is hot, add chicken and sauté until golden. Don’t crowd the pan, so work in batches. This step just browns the chicken – it will finish cooking in the oven. Transfer chicken to a 13x9-casserole baking dish.
  2. Add 3 tablespoons oil along with sliced mushrooms and diced onions and sauté until soft and golden. Add garlic and sauté another 1 to 2 minutes. Pour the mixture over the chicken.
  3. For the sauce, melt 3 tablespoons butter in the pan. Add the flour and whisk until lightly golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Add chicken broth and lemon juice and whisk until smooth. Add the half and half and bring to a simmer. Pour the sauce over the chicken and mushrooms
  4. Cover with foil and bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for 30 to 45 minutes, depending on how thickly you cut the chicken.
