 Ingredients List

  • 4 Breasts, chicken, halves,
  • -- broiler/fryer, boned,
  • -- skinned
  • 3 tb Pesto, prepared
  • 1 c Broth, chicken
  • Spray, vegetable, cooking
  • 1/4 c Vinegar, balsamic
  • 1/2 c Mushrooms, shitake,

  • 1/3 c Onion, chopped

On a hard surface with a meat mallet or similar flattening
utensil, pound the chicken to a 1/4-inch thickness.

Spread pesto on each side of the chicken breasts.

Spray a large non-stick frypan with vegetable cooking spray (PAM,
as an example) and heat quickly on high until pan is very hot.

Reduce the heat to medium and add the chicken, searing 3 - 4
minutes or until lightly brown on both sides.

Remove the chicken, set aside.

To the drippings in the pan, add the broth, vinegar, mushrooms,
and onion. Cook for 1 minute, stirring to loosen the brown bits from
the bottom of the pan.

Add the browned chicken, turning to coat. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or
until chicken is fork tender.

Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with red pepper, olives,
and cilantro.
