Recipe: Mushroom-Stuffed Chicken Breasts


Serves 4 to 6

5 T butter
½ lb mushrooms, chopped fine
½ t salt
¼ t freshly ground pepper
1-1/2 C freshly made bread crumbs
¼ t nutmeg (optional)
4 chicken breasts, boned, halved, and pounded flat
½ C heavy cream
½ C chicken broth

Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Melt 4 tablespoons of the butter in a skillet.
Add the mushrooms, salt, and pepper, and cook, stirring often, until the mushrooms turn very dark and absorb all the butter.
Remove from the heat and stir in ¾ cup of the bread crumbs and the nutmeg.
Divide the mushroom stuffing into 8 portions and place a portion in the center of each piece of chicken.
Fold the chicken around the stuffing, and place, seam side down, in a buttered shallow casserole or baking dish.
Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter and brush over the chicken.
Sprinkle with the remaining ¾ cup of bread crumbs.
Pour on cream and broth.
Bake for 30 minutes, until lightly brown.
