Chicken in Sherry Mushroom Sauce

 

Main Dish

3/4 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs

2 teaspoons olive oil

1 tablespoon flour

3/4 cup dry sherry

1/2 pound sliced portobello mushrooms

2 teaspoons minced garlic

Salt and freshly ground pepper

2 tablespoons heavy cream

Remove visible fat from chicken. Heat oil over medium-high heat in a nonstick skillet just large enough to hold the chicken in one layer. Add the chicken and brown 2 minutes. Turn and brown 2 minutes. Add the flour and mix it to a paste in the fat in the skillet. Add the sherry a little at a time, stirring to mix in the flour mixture. Add the mushrooms and garlic. Continue to cook stirring to thicken the sauce, about 2 minutes. A meat thermometer should read 170 degrees. Stir in the cream. Divide chicken and mushrooms between 2 dinner plates and spoon sauce on top. Makes 2 servings.
