Chicken with Mushroom Cream Sauce

Ingredients: 

  • 2 pounds chicken breast
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 1 pound mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 3 egg yolks
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions:

  1. Sauté chicken in 2 tbsp of the butter and the 3 tbsp of oil until golden brown. Then move it to a casserole dish. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a fresh pan, gently sauté the mushrooms with the remaining 3 tbsp of butter for about 8 minutes or until they are tender and have a glorious aroma. 
  3. In the chicken pan, drain most of the fat and add the wine. Cook until it is reduced to half the amount. Then remove it from heat. 
  4. Beat the egg yolks and cream in a bowl. Add them to the wine and return to very low heat. Cook until it thickens nicely. Season with salt and pepper. 
  5. Add the heavenly mushrooms! (FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DON’T DRAIN THE MUSHROOMS, THE JUICE WILL ADD BRILLIANT FLAVOR TO THE SAUCE) 
  6. Pour this magical sauce over the chicken in the casserole dish. 
  7. Serve it to your family~ (I made it with Austrian potato dumplings)

Et voilà!
