  • 4 4- to 5-ounce chicken cutlets (see Tips)
  • 4 cups mixed mushrooms, sliced if large
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Sprinkle chicken with ¼ teaspoon each kosher salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the chicken, turning once, until browned and just cooked through, 7 to 10 minutes total. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon oil and mushrooms to the pan; cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has evaporated, about 4 minutes. Increase heat to high, add wine and cook until it has mostly evaporated, about 4 minutes. Reduce heat to medium; stir in cream, any accumulated juice from the chicken and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Return the chicken to the pan and turn to coat with the sauce. Serve the chicken topped with the sauce and sprinkled with parsley.
  • Tips: You can make your own chicken cutlets from two 8- to 10-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Remove the tenders (the strip of meat on the underside of the breast) and save for another use. Cut each breast in half crosswise. Place between pieces of plastic wrap. Pound with a meat mallet or skillet until about ½ inch thick.

I made this tonight for my husband and me, and we both enjoyed it. I added a sprig of fresh minced rosemary and a clove of minced fresh garlic to the mushrooms as they were releasing their juices. I served it over whole wheat rotini noodles. I would have preferred more sauce, but that would increase the caloric content. The nutrition information says a generous 1/4 cup sauce. However, there was only 1 cup liquid divided 4 ways, BEFORE the wine evaporated. Though the mushrooms could be said to be a part of the sauce, the actual sauce, without mushrooms was probably 1/8 cup. It was tasty with these additions, but I would have preferred even more flavor and sauce...if served with noodles or rice. Not quite good enough to be added to the definitely will make again list.

Made this tonight and left salt out since I have to cut back but did do pepper. Very good and will make again. May add rosemary next time as someone mentioned.

I was surprised at how flavorful this recipe turned out especially since the ingredients are so simple. Some people mentioned it was bland and added extra salt/seasoning. I didn’t measure out the salt and pepper, just eyeballed it so it’s possible I added more than what was called for. Anyways It’s great for those nights when you just want to whip up something quick and tasty. I saved the recipe and would definitely make this again.

We loved this. It was delicious. Relatively easy to make. I thought the portion sizes were good. I made a salad and potato’s as sides.

Loved it. Because I like chicken with Rosemary, I did add a tablespoon of Wildtree Lemon Rosemary blend seasoning. Will definitely make again.

I'm new to cooking and I'm obsessed with chicken. Didn't have wine but decided to cook this recipe anyway. Loved it, cant wait to try it with the wine. Added some chilli powder to the mushrooms for a little heat.

Yummy! But serving suggestion is way too small, just one cutlet and little bit of sauce. Otherwise, great recipe :)
