 Ingredients List

  • 8 tb Sweet butter
  • 2 tb Chopped scallions
  • 1/2 lb Button mushrooms, whole
  • -or quartered large ones
  • -wiped, stems removed
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground white
  • -pepper
  • 6 Prepared chicken breasts
  • -with skin removed,
  • -slightly flattened
  • 1/2 c Concentrated chicken
  • -stock*
  • 1 ds Lemon juice
  • 1 c Heavy cream
  • 1 Beurre Manie*
  • 2 tb Finely chopped chives


* Beurre Manie is used to thicken sauces. These butter-flour balls can be
made ahead in advance and stored in a sealed jar in the refrigerator for 1
or 2 weeks. Combine 1 T flour and 1 T sweet butter on a small flat plate
and blend the mixture with a fork into a very smooth paste. Roll the paste
into a ball. In a small skillet, heat 2 T of butter. Add the scallions and
cook for 2 or 3 minutes without browning. Add the mushrooms. Season with
salt and pepper and cook the mixture over high heat for 2 or 3 more minutes
to brown the mushrooms lightly. Reserve. Season the chicken breasts with
salt and pepper and sprinkle them with lemon juice. In a large chicken
fryer, melt the remaining butter. When it is quite hot, add the chicken
breasts and cook them for 1 minute on each side. Cover the pan with
buttered wax paper and then the pan lid. Lower the heat and simmer the
chicken breasts for another 8 to 10 minutes or until the juices run out
pale yellow when pierced with a fork. Do not overcook or pierce every
piece. Immediately remove the chicken breasts to a serving platter. Pour
the chicken stock into the fryer, raise the heat and reduce the stock until
it is almost a glaze. Add the heavy cream and continue cooking over high
heat. Add the Beurre Manie and cook until the sauce heavily coats a spoon.
Add the chives and correct the seasoning. Add the mushroom & scallion
mixture. Add the chives and correct the seasoning. Pour the sauce over the
chicken breasts and serve at once. From "Season Kitchen" by Perla Meyers.
