CHICKEN WITH MUSHROOM & ONIONS IN AN ASIAGO CREAM SAUCE


This was fabulous. I used low sodium chicken broth instead of the water and used butter flavour spray and a little bit of olive oil. I forgot to pound the chicken thin so I had to cook it longer but it came out wonderful. I had to add a little more cornstarch and I used Mrs. Dash gralic and herbs seasoning in the flour mixture as well as with the chicken broth. I also steamed some broccoli and tossed that into the pan with the chicken and the mushrooms. Served over linguine and it was delicious and elegant. I will definitely make this again!!!

Ingredients

1 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into pieces
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1 large onion, sliced
1 cup white wine
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 Tablespoon butter
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup shredded Asiago cheese
salt & pepper to taste

Directions

Heat 2 Tablespoons olive oil in deep skillet over medium.

Dredge chicken in cornstarch.  Add to hot oil and sprinkle with salt & pepper.  Saute until golden on each side, about 5 minutes per side.  Remove from pan.

Add the other Tablespoon olive oil and 1 Tablespoon butter to the hot skillet.  Saute mushrooms and onoins until mushrooms begin to brown.

Add white wine to skillet, return the chicken to the pan.  Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover for 15 minutes.

Remove the chicken again from the pan.  Add the cream and cheese and heat them through, stirring to melt cheese.  Once all combined and reduced a bit, add the chicken to the pan for a minute or two.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Serve over brown rice or pasta.
