Number of Servings: 4


    1/2 c. all purpose flour
    1/2 tsp. salt and more to taste
    1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper and more to taste
    2 whole boneless skinless chicken breasts, well rinsed, patted dry, halved, and trimmed
    3 tbsp. butter, margarine (used for nutritional info on this recipe), or light oil
    juice of 1 lime
    1/2 c. champagne
    1/2 lb. mushrooms, sliced
    1/4 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg


In a shallow bowl combine flour, salt, pepper. Dredge chicken in mixture. Set the breasts aside on a clean plate. Warm a nonreactive 10" skillet over medium heat. Add the butter and when hot, saute the chicken until lightly browned on both sides, 3 min. per side. Remove chicken to a plate.
Add the lime juice and champagne to the skillet and stir to scrape up the bits from the bottom of the pan. Let the sauce simmer over medium-low heat until alcohol burns off. Add the mushrooms and nutmeg and cook until mushrooms soften and the sauce reduces by one quarter to one-third, 5 minutes. Return the chicken to the skillet and cook over medium heat until the chicken is cooked through, 5-8 minutes more. Adjust seasonings with additional salt & pepper, then serve.

  • Great recipe! Perfect for Valentine's dinner tonight! Used a Rose Campagne and threw some red grapes in. They were a super addition. Definitely will make this again! - 2/14/11
