Mushroom-Herb Chicken


Yield

4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and 1/3 cup mushroom sauce)

Flavorful herbs and spices, red wine vinegar, shallots, and mushrooms give these plain chicken breasts rich flavor. A veggie side completes this paleo meal. If you don't care to use the red wine vinegar, you can use 1/3 cup of chicken broth.

  • 4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 3 large shallots, peeled (about 1 cup)
  • 1 (8-ounce) package presliced mushrooms
  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar

How to Make It

Step 1

Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; pound to 1/3-inch thickness using a meat mallet or small heavy skillet. Sprinkle chicken evenly with salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and drizzle with 1/2 teaspoon olive oil. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken to pan; cook 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until browned.

Step 2

While chicken cooks, cut shallots vertically into thin slices. Remove chicken from pan. Coat pan with 1/2 teaspoon olive oil. Add mushrooms and shallots to pan. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in sherry and marjoram. Return chicken to pan; cover and cook 3 to 4 minutes or until mushrooms are tender and chicken is done. Transfer chicken to a platter. Pour mushroom mixture over chicken; sprinkle with freshly ground pepper, if desired. Serve immediately.
