  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¾ cup white wine
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 16 ounces baby bella mushrooms sliced
  • 1/3 cup lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme chopped
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • Fresh thyme


  1. Season the chicken with a little salt and pepper on both sides and set aside.
  2. Clean and slice the mushrooms, set aside.
  3. Add 3 tablespoons of butter to a medium non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Once the butter is almost melted, add the chicken to the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown on each side.
  4. Using tongs, remove the chicken from the skillet and place it on a plate nearby. Cover with foil.

  5. Reduce heat to medium and add the white wine to the skillet to deglaze it. Add the diced onion, minced garlic, and the sliced mushrooms. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until mushrooms are just tender.

  6. Add the lemon zest, fresh thyme, salt, and pepper, stir and cook for another 2 minutes.

  7. Stir in the heavy cream, taste and adjust for salt and pepper.
  8. Add the chicken back to the skillet, into the sauce and simmer on low for 3-5 minutes, until the chicken is cooked. Stir a few times.
  9. Remove from heat, garnish with fresh lemon and fresh thyme.
  10. Serve on its own, with warm, crusty bread for dipping or over pasta.

  11. Enjoy!
