Chicken Scaloppini In Sherry & Red Wine Mushroom Sauce

Posted on

Tired of the same old chicken dinners?
This one will change all that.

I know you’ll love it.

I use sherry in several other chicken recipes.
It gives it just the right smooth finish
that’s quite different from using red or white
wine. I use dry, cocktail, or golden sherry.
Never use cooking sherry. You’ll want to be
able to drink it as well.

Pound the chicken breasts until an even thin
thickness; dredge in seasoned flour and saute’
in olive oil or butter until golden.

Remove to a platter and keep warm in the oven.

Add the mushrooms to the skillet.

Season with salt, pepper and thyme.
Brown on MH for about 4 minutes then
add the garlic and cook another minute.
Add the red wine and sherry; let simmer
until reduced by a third.
 Remove from heay and add butter, 1 T
at a time, while whisking in to blend.
 Pour the mushroom sauce over
the chicken on the platter and serve.

Chicken Scaloppini in Red Wine Mushroom Sauce

in the flour and shake off excess.  Saute’ in the
hot oil for about 4 minutes per side, until golden.
Remove to a platter and keep warm in a low oven.
Add the sliced mushrooms to the skillet and

MH for about 4 minutes then add the garlic;
cook another minute. Add the red wine and sherry

in to blend. Pour the sauce over the chicken; serve.
