Roast Chicken with Wild Mushroom Sauce

Source: Martha Stewart Living, March 2007


  • 4 boneless chicken breast halves with skin (about 11 ounces each)
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 pound assorted mushrooms (such as shiitake, cremini, and white), stemmed and quartered
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups homemade or low-sodium store-bought chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, plus sprigs
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, skin side down; cook until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Flip; transfer to oven. Roast until a meat thermometer registers 160 degrees, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a plate; cover.

  2. Place the skillet over medium heat. Add onion; cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add mushrooms. Cover; cook, stirring occasionally, 3 minutes. Stir in vinegar. Add flour; cook, stirring, 1 minute. Stir in stock and chopped parsley; simmer, stirring, until thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in cream; season with salt and pepper. Serve with chicken; garnish with parsley sprigs.

    I make this on a regularly, it is so delicious. It really surprises me this is under "quick" recipes it takes me quite a bit longer. but it is worth it! Reheats well and makes a great left over!

    Excellent dinner! I subbed thighs for breasts (I like dark meat), and made rice on the side, which I sprinkled with some of the fresh parsley from this recipe. It was a win!

    This looks delicious! I love the mushrooms. My family can always agree on chicken. We have a favorite chicken dish that is great for a smaill group, or can be made for a crowd. I made the Pancetta and Rosemary Chicken for my daughter's confirmation. It's amazing. You're going to love it.
