Pan-Fried Chicken with Mushroom Cream Sauce

Pan-Fried Chicken with Mushroom Cream Sauce

Many folks will shy away from cooking chicken breast. If not cooked correctly it can be dry and tasteless.

I immediately saw that as a challenge and I do love a good challenge! I created a recipe that is rich, creamy, and the chicken breast is moist and succulent. And the mushrooms add a really nice earthy flavor.
