Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 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.

  • 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 1/4 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 1/2 inch thick.

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. Read More

I simmered the chicken longer to get it done and doubled the mushrooms since they tend to cook way down. It was a little bland to me and everyone added more salt and pepper but still pretty good. I will spice it up next time. Read More

This had a good flavor. The only thing I found wrong with it was the sauce was too runny. Will make again with a thicker sauce. Read More

Making your own chicken cutlets is a little more difficult than it seems - it took me a while to get the portions just right (ish). I used seasoned salt instead of kosher salt to season the chicken & I'm sure I used more than was called for. The sauce was kind of bland to me so I added garlic powder onion powder seasoned salt & a little pepper. It also seemed like there wasn't really enough sauce so I added extra heavy cream. The dish tasted good but I feel like it was a lot of effort to just make cream of mushroom soup. I could have used a can & thinned it out with a little extra water or milk & achieved roughly the same thing. I served with white rice & asparagus broiled in the oven with a little EVOO & sea salt.

This was awesome! The Safeway near me just happened to be out of any mushrooms other than white Portobello and crimini the day I made this....wtf?!? So I bought those and 2 cans of shiitake i found. I also only had chicken leg quarters but this was still FABULOUS. Browned the chicken then put it in the oven on 350 while I made the rest. Served it over mashed potatoes and we both loved it!
