Chicken Sauteed in White Wine with Mushrooms

Chicken Sauteed in White Wine with Mushrooms-7-poppopcooks.com

If you want to make some Chicken Marsala and you only have one bottle of red wine on hand and to make it worse it’s your favorite red wine and you don’t want to pour any of it into your sauté pan. But, you have some leftover white in the fridge that you don’t care about nearly as much . Yeah, that was me and I went ahead and made this Chicken Sautéed in White Wine with Mushrooms.

First lets do the chicken. Put a skillet sauce pan, that is big enough to handle all the filets, on at medium high and drizzle enough olive oil to lightly coat the bottom of the pan. If you are using boneless skinless breasts just trim any fat off and lay it flat on your cutting board. Put our hand on the breast and hold it down while you cut it in half horizontally. Like you were going to butterfly it but you just go on all the way through winding up with two thin filets. Depending on the size of the breasts filet as many as you need for tonights meal and maybe some extras for leftovers. Chicken tenders or boneless skinless thighs work real good also. Salt and pepper both sides of the filets and lay them out in the skillet. Wash the cutting board, the knife and your hands real good with soap and water.  Use tongs or a large cooks fork to handle the chicken from now on. Give them about 2-3 minutes a side. When they are firm and there is no more white liquid oozing out put them aside in a dish that will catch the drippings. While the chicken is cooking cut up the onions, rosemary and the garlic. Have the Shiitake mushrooms on standby.

After you take the chicken out of the pan put the onions, and a tablespoon of butter in it. Lightly sprinkle some salt and pepper on top. Stir it up with a wooden spoon getting the bits off the bottom of the pan.

When the onions start to get translucent add the rosemary, garlic and another two tablespoons of butter. Squeeze the lemon juice on the garlic and put the lemon rind into the pan.

When the onions are starting to get brown push them out to the side of the pan and put a big pinch of flour in the middle. Whisk it up and stir it in with the butter creating a roux that will thicken the wine.

Add the white wine and stir everything together. Put the chicken filets with the drippings and the mushrooms in the pan. Turn the filets over a couple of times to get them covered with the sauce and get the mushrooms mixed in. After a few minutes the chicken will have warmed back up and the sauce will be ready.

One Pan Rosemary Chicken and Potatoes

One Pan Rosemary Chicken-5-poppopcooks.com

You usually see One Pan Rosemary Chicken recipes done with bone in skin on thighs or breasts. We’re going with chicken tenders tonight because we always have a supply of them in freezer. You do too,,,right?

Put the tenders in the microwave to thaw out. Set the oven at 450°F/230°C. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and then slices about 1/4″ thick and chop up 4 cloves of garlic.

When the chicken tenders have thawed put them in a bowl and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Add the chopped garlic, salt, pepper, lemon juice and the dried rosemary. Turn them over a couple of times to get them coated.

One Pan Rosemary Chicken-2-poppopcooks.com

 

Put the potato slices in a ceramic bowl and in the microwave set at 4 minutes. Put an oven safe skillet on and set the burner at medium high. Add the chicken, the potatoes the lemon rinds and the rosemary sprigs. Be sure to get all of the stuff from the chicken bowl on the chicken after you put the tenders in the pan. Sear the chicken tenders on both sides. Don’t worry about cooking them all the way through at this point.

Put the pan in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes or until the tenders are firm to a finger poke and/or the juices run clear.

Then serve up your One Pan Rosemary Chicken and Potatoes. We had a good chianti with ours and some of poppop’s homemade bread.

One Pan Grilled Chicken Meal 18 Minutes

One Pan Grilled Chicken Meal-7-poppopcooks.com

You will make this One Pan Grilled Chicken Meal for a weeknight dinner fairly regularly because it’s simple, one pan and you probably keep all of the ingredients always on hand in the fridge. I’ll bet that you always have a bag of frozen chicken tenders or breasts in the freezer and potatoes and onions in the fridge. When you just want to throw together a quick no brainer but, you still want it to be good, this will always fill the bill. You can use a stovetop grill like I did tonight or you make it in the oven, on a cookie sheet  lined with foil for an easy cleanup.

If your chicken needs to be thawed out just put it in the microwave with the proper settings. While that is going on clean and slice the potatoes into about 3/8″ slices. Cut the ends off of the onion, peel it and slice it into about 1/2″ slices. Be careful handling the onion slices because they will want to come undone.

One Pan Grilled Chicken Meal-poppopcooks.com

 

Put your stovetop grill on the stove at medium high and spray or wipe it with olive oil.

One Pan Grilled Chicken Meal-2-poppopcooks.com

 

Spread the veggies out on the cutting board and lightly drizzle or spray with olive oil. Salt and pepper them then turn them over and do the other side. Spread them out on the grill (or cookie sheet) leaving room for the chicken. As the veggies get started drizzle the chicken with olive oil, lightly sprinkle salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper or crushed red pepper. Toss the chicken to get it all coated with the oil and spices. Add the chicken to the grill (or cookie sheet).

and after about 3-4 minutes . Turn everything over and give the other side the same treatment.

Then serve it up! We had a good California SAUVIGNON BLANC with our cheap, fast and very good dinner. It all went together real well.
