This Creamy Mushroom Asiago Chicken Is a Masterpiece
Chicken breasts get a bad reputation for being dry and boring, but dear reader, it doesn’t need to be that way. You see, chicken breast is sort of like a blank canvas, and you, the cook, can project a litany of impressive flavors onto it. Take this recipe for creamy Asiago chicken, from My Incredible Recipes, as a prime example. It’s more than worthy of your time and energy.
This dish gets its flavor from a creamy broth infused with mushrooms, parsley, white wine, and garlic, and of course a hearty helping of Asiago cheese. But big flavors don’t mean you need professional chefs to make a dish. In fact, the process is quite simple: After dredging the chicken breasts in flour, you’ll quickly sauté them in a hot skillet for just four minutes and remove them from the pan. Add the rest of your ingredients (except the heavy cream and cheese) to the same skillet, then add the chicken back to let it simmer for about 15 minutes. The chicken comes out one more time when you add the cream and cheese, then the chicken returns to the pan until it’s heated all the way through. Altogether, it shouldn’t take you more than half an hour to get this dish on the table.
The reduced white wine alongside the cheese ensures that your chicken breasts stay tender and juicy, and the mushrooms add a flavorful punch. These flavors pair well with a side dish like rice, mashed potatoes, or quinoa if you’re feeling extra-healthy. Plus, you can make the main dish in the same pot, which cuts down on clean-up. That means extra time with your family enjoying your amazing cooking, and less time bent over the kitchen sink scrubbing multiple pieces of cookware.
With recipes like this on hand, I bet you’ll think twice before you dismiss chicken as too boring for dinner.
