Chicken with Mushroom Sauce

Chicken (with Mushroom Sauce)

2 to 4 skinless chicken breasts
2 cups mixed mushrooms, sliced
2 tablespoons minced shallots
1 to 2 tablespoons butter, divided
½ cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons whipping cream
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
½ lemon, zested
Chopped parsley (for garnish)

1. Bake chicken until done.
2. Add 1 tablespoon of the butter to a skillet and melt over medium heat. 
3. Add the mushrooms and shallots to the skillet and cook for 4-5 minutes until softened, while stirring often.
4. Add the chicken broth to the skillet, bring to a boil, and reduce to half. Add the whipping cream, thyme leaves and the last tablespoon of butter. Stir to mix/combine well, and add the lemon zest.

Serve with  the mushroom sauce over the chicken breasts. Garnish with the chopped parsley, more fresh thyme leaves and additional lemon zest if so desired.  I even added some Parmesan Cheese for an extra flavor!

Enjoy with your family!
