For the Chicken

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 large chicken breasts, cut lengthwise into 6 thin breasts
  • 1 tablespoon italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

For the Mushroom Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 shallot finely chopped
  • 16 ounces baby bella mushrooms washed and sliced
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup white wine
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream


    • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
    • Prepare the chicken by cutting the large chicken breasts lengthwise. This will turn one large piece of chicken into two thinner, more uniform slices of chicken. Next, season the chicken. In a small bowl combine the spices and sprinkle each side of the chicken completely.
  • Heat a large skillet to medium heat and lightly cover the bottom of the skillet with olive oil. When the oil is hot and shimmering add the chicken and cook 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown. It is not necessary to cook through, as the chicken will finish cooking in the oven. Remove the chicken and set aside.
  • In the same skillet add the butter, minced garlic, finely chopped shallot, and sliced mushrooms. Saute the mushrooms over medium heat. If you feel you need to, reduce the heat to medium-low. The mushrooms will reduce greatly while cooking. Allow the mushrooms to cook, stirring occasionally for 5-7 minutes until it resembles this photo.

  • Add the chicken stock and the white wine to the skillet. Bring the liquid to a simmer and allow it to reduce by half. This process will take about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the heavy cream and allow the sauce to simmer for 5 minutes more until it has thickened.
  • Add the chicken to a casserole dish and top with the mushroom sauce. Bake the chicken at 350 degrees F covered with foil for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes. Until the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
