  • 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 ½ 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.
