- 1 teaspoon olive oil, plus more for brushing the portobello mushroom shopping list
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter shopping list
- 1 tablespoon light brown sugar shopping list
- 1/4 cup thinly sliced onions shopping list
- 1 (4 to 5 ounces) boneless, skinless chicken breast or thigh shopping list
- fine sea salt shopping list
- Freshly ground black pepper shopping list
- 1/4 cup dry red wine, such as marsala or merlot shopping list
- 1/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth shopping list
- 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice shopping list
- Few pinches of dried tarragon and/or thyme shopping list
- 1 large portobello mushroom cap shopping list
How to make it
- Heat the olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and onions, stirring to coat well. Cook, stirring once or twice, for 5 to 7 minutes or until the onions start to caramelize.
- Meanwhile, place the chicken between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and pound to a uniform thickness of about 1/2 inch. Discard the plastic and season the chicken with sea salt and pepper to taste.
- Grease the inside of a medium skillet with nonstick cooking oil spray; place the skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook for about 2 minutes on each side; the chicken will not be cooked through. Remove from the heat.
- When the onions have caramelized, add the wine, chicken broth and lemon juice (to the large skillet) and let the mixture cook down for a few minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low or low; use tongs to transfer the chicken to the large skillet. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, sprinkling with the dried herbs, until the chicken is evenly cooked and a sauce has formed in the skillet.
- While the chicken is cooking in the sauce, position an oven rack 4 to 5 inches from the broiler element; preheat the broiler. Line a small baking pan with aluminum foil.
- Lightly brush both sides of the portobello mushroom cap with olive oil, season lightly with salt and pepper and place it in the lined pan; broil for a few minutes on both sides until the mushroom has softened. Transfer to a plate. Place the chicken atop the mushroom cap and spoon the sauce over the top. Sprinkle with sea salt, if desired. Serve immediately
