Ingredients

  • 1 - 1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 6 tablespoons butter divided
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ pound fresh mushrooms sliced
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup white wine or additional chicken broth

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 F. Thaw the chicken breasts portions and pound them to an even 1/2 inch thickness. Sprinkle them with salt and pepper.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of the butter and olive oil in a skillet to a medium high heat. Add a clove of minced garlic. Flour the chicken lightly and brown in two batches until golden, about 3 minutes. Between batches, add additional butter, olive oil and garlic clove.
  • Place the browned chicken in an oven proof casserole dish. Heat the last 2 tablespoons of butter in the same skillet and sauté the mushrooms until tender. Add the lemon juice, chicken broth, and white wine and bring to a simmer. Pour the mushrooms and juice over the chicken in the casserole dish. Bake at 325 F. for 30 minutes or until cooked through.
