Ingredients

  • 10 Ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 Cup all-purpose flour, for dredging
  • 1/2 Cup olive oil
  • 1 Cup chicken stock
  • 3 Cups tomato sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 6 hot cherry peppers, seeded and sliced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Blanch the mushroom slices in boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain and set aside. Rinse the chicken under cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Gently pound each piece of chicken to slightly less than a ¼-inch in thickness. Dredge the chicken scaloppine in flour, shaking off the excess. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet and sauté the chicken until lightly browned, about 1 minute on each side. Drain excess oil from skillet. Add the stock, tomato sauce, red pepper flakes, cherry peppers, and mushrooms. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes. Salt and pepper, to taste. 

Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.

Chicken Wine Pairing

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
