Ingredients

    Ingredients:

    * Chicken Breast, no skin, 2 breast, bone and skin removed (remove)
    * Pepper, black, .5 tsp (remove)
    * Salt, .25 tsp (remove)
    * I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, Original Buttery Spray, 5 sprays, 1 serving (remove)
    * Mushrooms, fresh, 1 cup, pieces or slices (remove)
    * Swanson Chicken Broth 99% Fat Free, .25 cup (remove)
    * Heavy Whipping Cream, 2 tbsp (remove)
    * Scallions, raw, 2 tbsp chopped (remove)

Directions

Preparation

1. Season chicken with pepper and salt on both sides.
2. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning once or twice and adjusting the heat to prevent burning, until brown and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°F, 12 to 16 minutes. Transfer to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.
3. Add mushrooms to pan; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 2 minutes Pour in broth and cook until reduced by half, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in cream and chives (or scallions); return to a simmer. Return the chicken to the pan, turn to coat with sauce and cook until heated through, about 1 minute.

Tips & Notes

* Tip: It's difficult to find an individual chicken breast small enough for one portion. Removing the thin strip of meat from the underside of a 5-ounce breast—the “tender”—removes about 1 ounce of meat and yields a perfect 4-ounce portion. Wrap and freeze the tenders and when you have gathered enough, use them in a stir-fry or for oven-baked chicken fingers.
