What I'm Making In The Kitchen
My favorite dish right now is chicken mushroom scallopini. Find the recipe below!
What You'll Need:
- 1 Shallot
- Medium Leek (both a great change from onions)
- 4-5 cloves of garlic
- All chopped medium/fine
- Sliced brown mushrooms (4-5 cups)
- Seasoned flour (I season with Italian mixed herbs, salt, pepper)
- 4 chicken breasts sliced thinly (Or buy already a la scallopini)
- Cup (or two) white wine
- Vegetable stock
Step One: Coat the chicken breasts in the seasoned flour and sauté them a deep pan in olive oil. Brown only to a nice coating (don’t fully cook) then set aside.
Step Two: In the same pan, sauté the shallots, leeks and garlic until soft and tender, then set aside. Add mushrooms and sauté until the water has rendered out of them.
Step Three: Combine the mushrooms, and mixed vegetables, add the wine and cook (this combines all the flavors).
Step Four: Add the chicken and then add the vegetable stock (don’t fully cover all the chicken, halfway is good). Bring to the boil and then simmer with a lid on for 20/30 minutes. The sauce should thicken, but if not, blend in some of the seasoned flour until sufficiently thickened.
Serve and enjoy!
