We were running late and tonight was the fasted I ever remember fixing dinner.   Twenty minutes top and voila dinner is on the table. We love “orzo” pasta, the great substitute for rice when time is the essence.

CHICKEN WITH GARLIC AND MUSHROOMS.docx


CHICKEN WITH GARLIC AND MUSHROOMS
½ cup flour
¾ teaspoon salt
Black pepper to taste
6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (or mix of tights and breasts)
¼ cup olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
8 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
½ pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
¼ teaspoon dried red chile flakes
1 ½ cups chicken broth
½ cup white wine
1 to 2 tablespoons bread crumbs
Juice of a half lemon
3 to 4 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped

Combine flour, salt and pepper in a plastic bag. Add the chicken breasts one at the time and shake to coat well. Set aside. In a large skillet add the olive oil and butter and cook on high for 2-3 minutes. Place the breasts in the skillet and cook on high until chicken is golden brown. Turn chicken and add garlic, mushrooms, chile flakes, and white wine and chicken broth. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Add bread crumbs and lemon juice and remove from the pan. Serve with juices and parsley.
