How to make Chicken with Garlic Mushroom Sauce

Step 1: Start by slicing the chicken lengthwise. Then, season both sides with salt and pepper. Cook in olive oil over medium heat until the chicken is golden. When done, transfer to a plate and set aside.

Step 2: Add the mushrooms to the same pan along with the chopped rosemary, salt, and pepper. Cook the mushrooms for about 2 to 3 minutes over medium heat until brown. Then, add the chopped shallots and minced garlic. Continue to cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes. Now, stir in 1 tbsp flour. Pour in the white wine and deglaze the pan using a spatula before you add the chicken stock, double/heavy cream, add 1 tablespoon of mustard. Stir well.

Step 3: To the pan, add the chicken breasts along with the juices from the plate. Bring the sauce to a boil, then adjust the heat to low. Simmer the sauce for about 10 minutes. If needed, add more salt and pepper.

Step 4: Remove from the heat when done and serve the chicken with garlic mushroom sauce immediately. Enjoy!
