For the Chicken:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

For the Mushroom and Wine Sauce:

  • 8 ounces (approximately 2 cups) sliced mushrooms
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine (e.g., Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme (or fresh if available)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Chopped fresh parsley (optional garnish)


1. Prepare the Chicken:

  • Season both sides of the chicken breasts with salt and black pepper.

2. Sear the Chicken:

  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add the chicken breasts and cook for approximately 4-5 minutes per side, or until they are golden brown and cooked through. Cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the chicken. Once done, transfer the cooked chicken to a plate.

3. Sauté Mushrooms and Garlic:

  • In the same skillet, add the sliced mushrooms and chopped garlic.
  • Sauté for about 5 minutes, allowing the mushrooms to release their moisture and become tender.

4. Deglaze with Wine:

  • Pour in the dry white wine, using a wooden spoon to scrape up any browned bits from the skillet.
  • Allow the wine to simmer for a few minutes to reduce slightly.

5. Add Thyme and Chicken Broth:

  • Stir in the dried thyme and chicken broth.
  • Let the mixture simmer for an additional 5-7 minutes until it thickens and reduces.

6. Return the Chicken:

  • Place the browned chicken breasts back into the skillet, nestling them into the wine and mushroom sauce.

7. Finish with Cream and Butter:

  • Pour the heavy cream into the skillet and add the unsalted butter.
  • Stir the sauce until everything is well combined.
  • Allow the sauce to simmer for another 5 minutes or until it thickens and the chicken is heated through.

8. Season and Garnish:

  • Taste the sauce and adjust the seasoning with salt and black pepper, if necessary.
  • Optionally, sprinkle chopped fresh parsley on top as a garnish.

9. Serve Hot:

  • Serve the chicken in the luscious mushroom and wine sauce directly from the skillet.
  • Pair this delectable dish with cooked pasta, rice, or your choice of veggies.
