Chicken with a creamy mushroom sauce

This is a simple dish to make and doesn't take very long. The creamy mushroom sauce adds that extra little touch to the chicken.

For this recipe you'll need:
  • 2tbs olive oil,
  • Chicken breasts
  • 15g butter
  • Variety of mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 100ml crème fraiche
  • Grated parmesan cheese (as much or as little as you like)
  • A little chopped parsley to serve

To start off with, heat the oven to 180C, 350F or gas mark 4.  Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in the frying pan and add the chicken. Fry for about 2-3mins on each side or until the chicken is golden, then place on a baking sheet in the oven for 15-20mins.

While the chicken is in the oven, melt the butter in a deep frying pan and add the mushrooms.

Season with salt and pepper. Fry until slightly browned then add the crushed garlic.

Reduce the heat a little and stir in the crème fraiche and parmesan. Allow to simmer until the sauce has slightly thickened.

Serve the sauce poured over the chicken with potatoes and green beans on the side, or any other vegetables you have.
