Dontcha love chicken? It's so easy to prepare, and it's cost effective.


4 tbs. Butter, divided (unsalted)
2 skinless boneless chicken breasts
1/3 cup water
½ tsp. Chicken bouillon or your own home made chicken base broth
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
¼ cup white wine
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream


Melt 2 tbs. Butter in a large non-stick skillet. Sauté mushrooms until tender and any liquid has evaporated; remove from pan; set aside. Melt remaining 2 tbs. Butter in same skillet. Sauté chicken breasts on both sides until golden brown and cooked through; remove from pan; set aside. (If chicken isn’t done when golden brown place in oven on 400 degrees until remaining recipe is finished)

Add onions to pan; sauté until tender. Add water, wine, and bouillon to pan. Bring to boil. Cook and stir until mixture is reduced by half. Add cream to pan. Cook and stir until slightly thickened. Return mushrooms to sauce and let cook together about 2 minutes on low heat.

Serve over a bed of linguini, penne or ziti with chicken on top. Spoon sauce over plate. Serve with REAL garlic bread (posted here) , a nice dry white wine, and a salad.
