Chicken & Mushrooms with Lemon Sauce

chicken and mushrooms with lemon sauce

This recipe originally came from Wampler, but since I don’t think they are in business any more, I’ll post it here.  I love the chicken, mushroom, Parmesan combination and when you add a lemon sauce to it, it’s even better.

I’m sorry I didn’t get a very good picture.  I accidentally left it under the broiler just a little too long which didn’t make for the most attractive picture.  This one is a piece that was cut in half.  The appeal of this dish is more in the flavor than the looks department anyway.

Chicken & Mushrooms with Lemon Sauce
Recipe type: Main
Serves: 4 - 6
  • 4 chicken breast halves, boneless and skinless
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • ¾ cup sliced mushrooms
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons white wine
  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon pepper
  • ⅓ cup grated Parmesan
  1. Melt the butter in a skillet and sauté the chicken until just fully cooked.
  2. Remove the chicken and add the mushrooms. Sauté until soft.
  3. Combine the cornstarch and water. Add it to the skillet along with the wine, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  4. Stir and cook on high heat for 1 minute.
  5. Butterfly the chicken breasts (slice them horizontally, but not all the way through).
  6. Place some of the sauce and Parmesan inside each chicken breast and place it in a baking dish. Cover the chicken with the remaining sauce and Parmesan.
  7. Broil until lightly brown.

    Mmm…lemon sauce sounds really good right now! My contribution is chicken fried steak and oven sweet potato fries. Much easier than it sounds…and watching Alton Brown on the Food Network convinced me that frying once in a while is OK – he did a demonstration where he used an entire bottle of oil, fried some foods, then poured the cooled oil back in the bottle – not much of it was gone! And you can reuse it.

    I love naturally gluten-free recipes. I made a mushroom chicken dish last night and it was incredible.

    I am sharing a delicious, simple soup that will convince you to never open a can of tomato soup again.

    Thanks for hosting, Linda!!

  4. That looks REALLY delicious!
