Ingredients
  

For the Chicken Breast:

  • 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided
  • 4 six to eight-ounces boneless and skinless Breast of Chicken
  • Salt & Pepper

Make the Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Sweet Butter, not salted
  • 2 Shallots, minced
  • ½ pounds mixed Mushrooms, Baby Portobello, Shitake, Crimini, or Oyster
  • ½ bag Spinach Leaves, chopped
  • ½ cup good White Wine, Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc will work great
  • ½ cup Chicken Stock
  • ¼ cup Heavy Cream
  • 2 tablespoons Cornstarch, diluted into 2 tablespoons water (if needed)
  • Add more Butter at the end if you wish

Instructions
 

  • For the Chicken Breast:
  • Preheat Oven to 375°
  • In a sauté pan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil.  When hot, sauté the chicken breasts on one side until golden brown.  Turn chicken over and transfer to cookie sheet lined with a silicone baking mat and bake for 10 minutes or until inside temperature is 160°/165°.
  • Make the Sauce:
  • In a reduction sauce pan, heat the butter and olive oil.  When hot add the shallots and cook until light golden brown.  Add the mushrooms and salt and pepper and cook for a few minutes (this could take 5 to 8 minutes) to let them release ALL their water. 
  • Add the spinach and cook for a couple more minutes until wilted. Add the white wine and let it reduce by half or until very smooth.
  • Add the stock and cream, let it reduce on medium high heat for about 5 minutes to thicken.  You may have to reduce the heat to medium to low heat.
  • Use a little corn starch slurry to thicken to the right consistency if needed it!
  • Add more butter at the end of the heat!

    Chef,

    Fantastic recipe. Just made this tonight after your video on YouTube today. Sauce was creamy, smooth and rich. The wine added a nice zing to it as well. The mushrooms and shallots worked beautifully together. I added a little stock for some volume and it wound up amping up the mushroom and shallots.

    I pan roasted the chicken on both sides to golden brown and then oven roasted the chicken in the oven for 25 minutes. Came out at 160 and rested to 165-170.

    I will be adding this to my menu here at home!
