Chicken, mushrooms, lemon and cream come together to quickly create a scrumptious entree. Serve over a bit of pasta and add big green salad for an easy, elegant summer meal.

1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper, freshly cracked and ground
6 chicken breast halves, boned and skinned
1/4 cup butter
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup whipping cream
3 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 pound fresh mushrooms

In a small bowl blend together 1 tablespoon of the unbleached all-purpose flour and 1/4 cup whipping cream; stir until smooth and set aside.

In a medium sized lidded container or plastic bag combine 1/2 cup flour, salt and pepper. Add the chicken and shake to coat. Place the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. When the butter has melted, lightly shake excess flour from the chicken and add to the skillet. Cook on each side for 8 – 10 minutes or until the juices run clear. Remove the chicken to a warm platter and lightly cover to keep warm.

Add the chicken broth to the drippings in the pan. Stir and scrape the pan to loosen the browned bits as you bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for approximately 10 minutes or until the broth is reduced to about 1/3 cup. Stir in 3/4 cup cream, lemon juice and mushrooms. Increase heat to medium-low and cook for approximately 5 minutes.

Give the cream and flour you set aside a light stir and add to the skillet; stir to blend well. Bring the sauce to a boil and cook for approximately 2 minutes or until thickened. Return the chicken to the skillet and turn the heat off. Allow the chicken to stand in the sauce for 3 – 5 minutes to heat through.

Yield: 6 servings.
