Sauteed Chicken with Mushrooms and Green Beans

Ready in half an hour: tender chicken cutlets, served with green beans, herbed mushrooms, and a buttery sauce.

  • prep: 5 mins
    total time: 30 mins
  • servings: 4




  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken cutlets (about 8)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 10 ounces white mushrooms, trimmed and quartered
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped


  1. Step 1

    Set a steamer basket in a large saucepan; fill with enough water to come just below basket. Bring to a boil; add green beans, cover, and reduce to a simmer. Cook until crisp-tender, 4 to 6 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Working in batches, cook chicken until opaque throughout, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate, and loosely tent with aluminum foil (reserve skillet).

  3. Step 3

    Place mushrooms and 1 tablespoon butter in skillet; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are tender, about 7 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in remaining 2 tablespoons butter, lemon juice, and parsley. Top chicken with mushrooms, and serve with green beans alongside.
