Chicken and Mushrooms in a Garlic Wine Sauce (30 minute meal)

I love to make dinner every night but I don't always feel like a fancy gourmet dinner. You can prepare a healthy and delicious dinner for yourself, your family or your friends for under 30 minutes. This is a Paleo Recipe and you can add any side you would like. If you are not Paleo then egg noodles or rice go well. I love to sauté zucchini noodles for a minute in olive oil or just a side salad. Enjoy!

 

Ingredients

  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves /li>
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 (8-ounce) package pre sliced mushrooms of your choice (such as shiitake, cremini, and oyster)
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced (or chopped very small)
  • 2 garlic cloves, diced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon arrowroot or cornstarch (depending on your diet)

Directions

  1. Using a poultry safe board and a chefs knife cut chicken into 1-inch pieces. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat then add in 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add chicken to pan; sauté for about 4 minutes or until browned on both sides. Remove chicken from pan. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan. Add mushrooms, onions and sauté for about 3 minutes or until liquid evaporates and mushrooms darken. Add garlic and sauté for an additional 3 minutes.

  3. Add white wine, chicken broth and tarragon cover and let simmer for about 2 minutes. Taste for any additional salt/pepper. To thicken the sauce add in arrowroot or cornstarch and whisk.

  4. Return chicken to the pan. Cover and simmer 2 minutes. Uncover; cook 1 minute or until chicken is done.

  5. Serve with your favorite sides or salad.

    Tip!If you are using cornstarch to thicken. Take a small ramekin and add cornstarch then add 1 tablespoon of water and stir with a fork. Then add to pan. This will prevent any lumps.

    Note: If you want to make zucchini noodles - Take zucchini and take your parer knife and go from one end to the other going around the zucchini. Stop when you get to the seeds. Take a small sauté pan over medium heat and add in 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 garlic clove minced. Add zucchini season with 1/2 teaspoon sea salt and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper. Stir using a tong to combine the oil and garlic. Take off heat and enjoy with your meal.
