This recipe for chicken with garlic-mushroom white wine sauce is one of my favorites. It’s so easy to make, and it’s always a hit with my family. The chicken is cooked perfectly, and the mushrooms are tender and flavorful. The white wine sauce is rich and creamy, and it’s the perfect complement to the chicken and mushrooms.

I usually serve this dish over egg noodles or pasta, but it’s also great with rice. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can add some fresh spinach to the dish during the last few minutes of cooking. The spinach will wilt down and add a nice touch of freshness to the dish.

  3. Cut chicken into 1 inch pieces, place pieces in a bowl and sprinkle flour mixture over chicken, toss to coat.
  4. Get a sheet of foil ready to place the chicken in after browning.
  5. Heat a large skillet or dutch oven over med-high heat. Add 1 TBL Olive Oil to pan, swirl oil to coat pan.
  6. Add chicken, cook for 2 minutes then turn to brown other side for 2 minutes.
  7. Remove chicken to foil, close to seal and keep warm.
  8. Add another TBL of olive oil to pan, swirl oil to coat pan.
  9. Add mushrooms and minced garlic, cook for 4 - 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Mushrooms should be tender.

This recipe is a great weeknight meal that’s quick and easy to make. It’s also elegant enough to serve to guests. I highly recommend it!

Here are some additional tips for making chicken with garlic-mushroom white wine sauce:

  • Use a good quality white wine. The wine will add a lot of flavor to the sauce, so it’s important to use a wine that you like.
  • Don’t overcook the chicken. You want the chicken to be cooked through, but you don’t want it to be dry.
  • If you’re not a fan of mushrooms, you can substitute another vegetable, such as broccoli or asparagus.
  • If you don’t have fresh cilantro, you can use dried cilantro. Just be sure to use less dried cilantro than you would fresh cilantro, as it is more potent.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
