  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • Chicken:
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 6 chicken thighs skinless and boneless
  • salt and pepper
  • Mushroom Sauce:
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 10 oz mushrooms sliced
  • 2 tbsp flour (wheat or rice)
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup beef broth sodium free
  • juice of 1 fresh lemon (or 2 tbsp lemon juice)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp dried thyme (can also use Italian seasoning)
  • fresh thyme leaves for garnish


Cooking Chicken:
Sprinkle both sides of chicken thighs with salt and pepper and. Add 2 tablespoons of butter to skillet and melt over medium high heat. Add chicken thighs and cook on medium high heat for 4 minutes. Slightly reduce the heat and flip them over and cook for additional 4-5 minutes, for a total of 8-10 minutes. Remove from skillet.

Mushroom Sauce:
To the now empty skillet add 2 more tablespoons butter, sliced mushrooms and cook on medium heat until lightly browned, 4-5 minutes. Remove mushrooms from skillet onto the same plate with chicken.

Reduce the heat. To the once again empty skillet, slowly sift in 2 tablespoons flour mixing it with the fats in the pan with a whisk or fork, while also slowly pouring 1/2 cup of wine. Make sure flour and wine are well incorporated and simmered for about 2 minutes to eliminate raw-flour taste and concentrate wine flavor. Increase the heat and add beef broth (beef broth will make sauce dark) and lemon juice (I just cut the lemon into 4 parts and squeezed the juice out of it straight into the pan). Whisk or mix everything in together. Reduce the heat and add salt, pepper and onion & garlic powders. Sauce should be bubbling. Taste to see if more seasoning (salt, pepper, thyme or Italian seasoning) is required.

Putting it all together:
Add chicken and mushrooms back to the pan, spreading some mushrooms on top of the chicken. Cover with lid and simmer for 2-3 minutes to reheat the chicken and mushrooms.

To Serve:
Serve with vegetables, rice or over pasta.
