I love to entertain. And when I do, I try to pick out a menu that is simple but sure to please so I can take part in the “party”. This recipe was handed down to me by my mother-in-law. She happened to come across this one on an Italian Bread Crumb container. So easy and quick to make, but when you taste it, you would never know it. A restaurant-quality dish for sure.
Chicken with Wine & Mushrooms
4 boneless-skinless chicken breasts pounded to a ¼’’ thickness
1 – ½ cups Italian-flavored bread crumbs
¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
1 8oz. container mushrooms sliced
1 large sweet onion sliced
1 stick butter (divided)
2 tbsps. Olive oil
1 cup white wine
Preheat oven to 350-degrees. In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat, melt ½ stick of butter and 2 tbsp. of olive oil. Mix parmesan cheese and bread crumbs together. Dredge chicken in bread crumb mixture and brown on both sides. Remove chicken from pan and place in 9 X 13 glass baking dish. Add remaining butter to sauté pan and caramelize onions. Add mushrooms and cook for about 2 minutes. Deglaze pan with wine and let simmer for about 30 seconds. Remove pan from heat and pour mixture over the chicken breasts. Bake for 30 minutes or until chicken is done.
