Chicken in Wine Sauce














I made Chicken and Wine Sauce over pasta last night for dinner and it was excellent! The sauce was clean and light, perfect for summer. And I just love anything with mushrooms and artichokes so this was right up my alley. I did add more broth to make it more of a sauce since I was putting it over pasta and made a few minor cooking changes. It was delicious though and a good summer evening meal.

  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 2 tablespoons safflower oil
  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 8 or 9 ounce package frozen artichoke hearts, thawed and halved lengthwise (I used canned)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley

1. In a shallow dish, stir together flour, sage, pepper; reserve one tablespoon of flour mixture. Coat chicken in remaining flour mixture.

2. In a large skillet cook chicken in hot oil over medium-high heat for 6 minutes on each turning only once to ensure each side is browned. Remove chicken from skillet; cover and keep warm. Drain off any excess oil in skillet.

3. In the same skillet, cook mushrooms and artichoke hearts in the butter over medium heat for 3 minutes or until artichokes are tender.

4. In a small bowl stir together reserved flour mixture, wine, broth, and 1/8 teaspoon salt until smooth. Add wine mixture to skillet. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. Pour sauce over chicken.
