  • Add remaining tablespoon oil to skillet. Add mushrooms and garlic, and season with salt. Cover; and cook over medium heat until mushrooms release their juices, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove lid. Cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are golden, 4 to 5 minutes.

  • Add wine, and cook, stirring, until evaporated, about 1 minute. Add broth and parsley, cook over medium-high heat until mushrooms are tender and liquid is reduced, 8 to 10 minutes.

  • Return chicken to skillet. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until chicken is cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve chicken topped with mushrooms, and drizzled with cooking liquid. Garnish with chopped parsley.

Variations

This recipe can be made with pork cutlets instead of chicken. For an earthier flavor, substitute shiitake, cremini, or wild mushrooms for the white mushrooms.

FIVE STARS! Elegant comfort food. I made this recipe with the oven-baked creamy polenta for my fiance, and he absolutely loved it! He said the dish was fine dining quality. The presentation was lovely. I substituted chicken legs and baby portabella mushrooms, as that's what I had on hand. I also used a little oregano and thyme for the marjoram, as I was out of that. Nevertheless, the flavors were simply divine. (We're fighting over who gets the leftovers.) This dish will impress your guests!

Made this recently and loved it! You have to love garlic. My husband was not a fan of the polenta, but I enjoyed it. Maybe potatoes next time.

This is one of my husbands favorites, we probably make it once a month in the fall and winter. I usually serve the chicken with mashed potatoes instead of polenta because we're not big polenta fans.

This tasted a little like institutional food to me! Maybe because I used ready made stock rather than home made? The mushrooms were pretty good but the sauce and the chicken reminded me of airline food or school dinners!

I use mini portabella mushrooms with this recipe and got an amazing result. We make this dish at least 2 or 3 times a year as it's a family favorite. It's also incredibly healthy as chicken dishes go!

I loved this dish. We used Pinot Girgio in it. This was the first time I have ever made polenta in the oven, loved it. FYI if you buy the AWESOME book "Everyday Food" the nutritional information for every recipe is in the back. Just to help you out...... 294 calories, 10 g fat, 43 g protein, 7 g carbs, 1.6 g fiber

We had this for dinner and it was very flavorful, moist and savory. I will be making this again. Next time I might use red wine instead of white and use a more woody mushroom.

I made this last night and thought it was delicious. Though it takes some time, it is very simple and the chicken is so moist.

I just made this today and was disappointed. Neither my husband or I thought it was anything special. There was way too much liquid and the mushrooms turned the liquid an unappetizing black color.

Many other sites provide nutritional information for their recipes. I am very surprised that a site with such high standards otherwise does not. I hope this lacking is soon corrected.

Lovely classic recipe, had this at my wedding, or something like it. If you want an added luxurious effect, make it creamier and use Morels for strength of flavour and Chanterelles for a fancy scupltural touch. Plse don't make the white wine opt. This is my first posting and I feel at risk of sounding like a Stepford wife!
