The secret to a good cream sauce is always the same: not too much cream or it can be overpowering, masking the more delicate flavors. Here it contains a bountiful amount of mushrooms and is served over chicken breasts. Source: EatingWell Magazine, March/April 2008

Ingredients

Directions

  • Season chicken with pepper and salt on both sides.

    Advertisement
  • Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning once or twice and adjusting the heat to prevent burning, until brown and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165 degrees F, 12 to 16 minutes. Transfer to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.

  • Add shallot to the pan and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 2 minutes. Pour in vermouth (or wine); simmer until almost evaporated, scraping up any browned bits, about 1 minute. Pour in broth and cook until reduced by half, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in cream and chives (or scallions); return to a simmer. Return the chicken to the pan, turn to coat with sauce and cook until heated through, about 1 minute.

Tips

It's difficult to find an individual chicken breast small enough for one portion. Removing the thin strip of meat from the underside of a 5-ounce breast--the “tender”--removes about 1 ounce of meat and yields a perfect 4-ounce portion. Wrap and freeze the tenders and when you have gathered enough, use them in a stir-fry or for oven-baked chicken fingers.

This is like the uber yumtasticest thing I've had in a while. I had sliced baby bellas so I used those and I didn't have any heavy cream so I subbed 1/2 tbsp unsalted butter and about 1.5 tbsp low fat mayo. Wasn't sure how it would turn out but was fantastic. Read More

One of our favorite recipes! Not sure why this is not a 5 star recipe if you are making it correctly! It is now in our regular rotation. Healthy easy to make and my husband loves it. One tip-sometimes I find that the chicken takes a while to cook in the skillet and gets done on the outside before the middle. To remedy this I pound it a little thinner before cooking. Still turns out tender and juicy! Pros: Flavorful easy to make consistent low calorie Read More

Sunday Dinner comes to Wednesday Night! No complaints really. Making twice the sauce was the best idea as it accompanies whatever starch you might serve with- rice pasta couscous or crusty dinner bread. Also added garlic and used Tajin seasoning instead of salt as it added a needed (for us ) kick. Would be happy serving this to guests. Pros: Looks elegant tastes terrific Cons: Needs adjustments Read More

Delicious! So I tried this tonight and my husband and I really enjoyed it and we agreed that this was definitely a keeper! I like sauces so I added cornstarch to it to thicken it up so that it wasn't so thin. I didn't have Shitake mushrooms so I used Creminis instead and I used turkey cutlets because I didn't have chicken breasts. I didn't follow the recipe exactly but I did use it as a base for what I ended up serving. Regardless this was delicious and I would definitely make this again. Pros: Quick simple and not a lot of prep work! Cons: Sauce is thin Read More

My Husband Loves This I made this for the first time about 6 months ago. It seems that since then I end up making it about once a month. My husband makes a specific request for this dish. I love it and he loves it so what more could you ask for! The sauce is even so good that the last time I made it the chicken had gone bad but I had already cut up everything to make it so I just cooked up some pasta and made the sauce exactly as written for it. It came out awesome. So this recipe is definitely versatile. Pros: Easy delicious healthy quick Read More

Great chicken recipe I thought this recipe was great.. made for a delicious meal and was easy to make for an extremely amateur cook like myself. I substituted scallions for onions and cream for 2%milk and a little bit of flour skipped the wine and based on the reviews added a little bit of extra broth and also a bit of cilantro just because I love it! The sauce didn't end up very creamy but I didn't mind I still thought the flavour was great. Would probably add a little bit of garlic next time again just due to personal preference. Again because I'm an amateur cook I just seasoned and baked the chicken just prior to cooking the sauce and let it soak in the sauce at the end; turned out perfect! Paired it with baked asparagus for a clean delicious low calorie meal. Pros: not a lot of ingredients Read More

Cream and oil in a diet recipe! I loved recipe and was surprised that cream and oil could be used in a recipe that was so low calorie. I had to make many substitutions to make it work for my house: broth for wine half and half for heavy cream onions for shallots porta bella for shiitake. I know that the other ingredients would have worked better but read the comments. I wish that the recipe had focused on ingredients that were more typical of a household were less costly and could be used for other recipes (how could a dieter use the rest of the heavy cream?). Pros: Elegant and easy. Cons: I had to substitute many ingredients. Read More

Easy and tasty Chicken dish I made this dish last night for dinner and it was really good. I didn't have any white wine but I seem to think it would have added a bit more depth to the sauce and chicken. Also I didn't have the heavy cream and used 1% milk and had to add a teaspoon or so of flour to help thicken the sauce. Nonetheless I will definitely make this again and add the wine and heavy cream as the recipe suggests but it wasn't horrible without them either. Pros: Easy to make Read More

I made this dish and for my own convenience (to make sure it came out tender) I diced the chicken. The first time I made this after dicing it up I noticed that the "sauce" came out more like a juice and did not thicken at all. No one else has made this comment so I assume everyone else did leave the chicken whole. After the first attempt (which was still tasty) my variation was to dice up the chicken (I used a full pound) double the wet ingredients and add a little extra salt and pepper (roughly doubling the recipe) directly to the sauce after the cream is added. At the VERY end I brought the sauce to a simmer mixed some cornstarch with water and slowly added it and stirred it in until it thickened like a gravy. I like having it over rice with some veggie on the side. Heather Chattanooga TN Read More

As usual another winner from EW......that's why I've subscribed for 3 years now! This recipe had minimal prep and went together so well. I just had to go out to get shitakes and cream. My attitude is if you love good food love to cook spend the time/money and get the correct ingredients! Believe me this recipe was worth it. My only problem is that I ended up giving my husband half of my chicken breast......he really could have eaten 2 rather than 1. Plus I agree that the sauce could be doubled especially if you're serving with a starch. I just added an entire 8 oz cream and it was perfect since I tossed angel hair with it. Next time I will double all or maybe just stick with the 8oz cream. In the end again simple ingredients delicate excellent taste! Read More

Delicious in it's simplicity This has probably been my favorite recipe so far. I didn't have a few ingredients so I made a couple substitutions and they are as follows: For the white whine I used one tablespoon red wine vinegar and one tablespoon chicken broth. For the shallots I used one teaspoon onion powder which I added in with the vinegar and broth. For the heavy cream I subbed one tablespoon skim milk and one tablespoon non-flavored coffee creamer. I had baby bellas so I used those instead. I can't believe how so few ingredients can be so full of flavor! Served with grilled yellow summer squash and over a bed of brown parsleyed rice this meal blew me away. One other thing I did was sprinkle about 1/8 tsp kosher salt over the mushrooms as they cooked before added the vinegar et all. I highly recommend this recipe and I will be making this again!

Great but not that creamy Mushrooms are AMAZING with this dish. I can't get the creaminess exactly (I imagine adding a bit of cornstarch may do the trick?) but the flavor is just fantastic. Definitely recommend having a meat thermometer (it makes a huge difference). Pros: delicious Cons: lacks creaminess Read More

Great This recipe turned out very good. I ended up having to substitute chopped Portobello mushroom caps for shitake as it was a last minute decision and none of my local shops sold them. It still turned out great. I served with browned rice with a dash of garlic salt and a glass of the Pinot used in the recipe which rounded out the meal very well. Pros: Easy to Make Cons: Shitake Mushrooms can be hard to find Read More

this was terrrrrific This was such a pleasant surprise I could not raving about it. I had wondered how anything with heavy cream could be so healthy.....especially because I don't like 'creamy' foods. This was not remotely creamy and in fact it simply tasted decadent without all the guilt. It definitely tasted as if it could have been on the menu of a fancy French restaurant.... yummmmoooooo. I am making it again tomorrow and I cannot wait. Pros: easy delicious decadent - without the guilt Read More

Just so-so I made this exactly as the recipe read and used chicken scallopine so it didn't dry out. The liquids all absorbed into my mushrooms so there was not a cream sauce at all. It wasn't bad and my husband liked it but I was hoping for more flavor. Pros: Quick Cons: Sauce was not a "sauce" at all Read More

Sauce Shmauce the only way i see this dish being a flop is someones personal taste or they dont succeed to make it properly - given that this dish was amazingly easy to make and fantastic flavor to boot! at least according to my own taste and ability and though the "sauce" wasnt sauce (which can be easily fixed by adding more of something i added nothing extra) i enjoyed it very much! i really never would have guessed that something so delicious would have so few calories! will be making this again in the future! Pros: easy affordable tasty Cons: -none- Read More
