4 servings


  • 1 pound chicken cutlets

  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 1 large onion, halved and sliced

  • 8 ounces white mushrooms, sliced

  • 4 teaspoons sweet paprika

  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • ½ cup low-sodium chicken broth

  • ½ cup sour cream

  • Chopped parsley for garnish


  1. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165 degrees F, about 6 minutes total. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.

  2. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and onion to the skillet. Cook, stirring, until the onion is mostly soft and lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring, until cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes. Add paprika, crushed red pepper and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Whisk broth and sour cream in a small bowl; add to the pan. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring, until the flavors have melded and the sauce has thickened, 2 to 3 minutes more. Add the chicken and cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes more. Garnish with parsley, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
