  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts; sliced lengthwise into thin cutlets
  • 3 tablespoons Horizon Organic butter
  • 1 lb. sliced mushrooms
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons white whole wheat flour or all-purpose flour
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup Horizon Organic Whole Milk
  • ¼ cup white wine or for a non-alcoholic option substitute with an equal amount of chicken broth
  • Fresh parsley for garnish


  • Heat about 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  • Season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper and add to the skillet. Cook chicken for about 4 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. Transfer chicken to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.*
  • Melt butter in the skillet. Add garlic and mushrooms to the skillet, sautéing until mushrooms are tender (about 4 minutes). I like to scrape up the bits at the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon as I stir. This gives the sauce so much flavor!
  • Add flour, salt, and pepper and stir until thick (about 1 more minute). Slowly add the milk, stirring constantly. Stir in the wine (or chicken broth). Bring sauce to a gentle simmer (don’t let it boil), and cook, stirring regularly until it thickens slightly (about 3-4 minutes).
  • Return chicken to the skillet to warm through. Serve chicken with plenty of mushroom sauce on top and garnish with fresh parsley.


*Do you have a picky eater at home? This is a great meal that can be adapted for everyone in the family. If your child doesn’t like mushrooms, just set aside a piece of plain chicken to serve without the sauce. Everyone’s happy, and you don’t have to cook a separate dinner for each member of the family!
Cooking for Two? This recipe can easily be cut in half by using ½-lb. of chicken and half as much sauce.
