Ingredients

1 ½ pounds chicken breast halves, boneless, skinless
four breast halves to serve 4
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 lemon
*
2 tablespoons butter
3 cups mushrooms
fresh sliced
½ cup chicken broth
or white wine
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon parsley leaves
chopped fresh
salt and black pepper
to taste and for seasoning the breasts
*

Directions

Preheat oven to 400℉ (200℃).

Place the olive oil in an 8 by 8 inch (20 by 20cm) glass baking dish.

Season both sides of the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.

Gather your ingredients
Season the chicken breasts

Place the chicken breasts in the dish, coating each side with oil.

Alternatively brown the chicken breasts over medium-high heat in a skillet before baking. This will develop more flavor and leave a fond in the skillet to help add more flavor to the sauce.

Squeeze the juice of ½ lemon over the chicken breasts.

Place the chicken breasts onto a baking dish, squeeze lemon juice over.
Slice the rest of the lemon and place a lemon slice on top of each chicken piece.

Slice the rest of the lemon and place a lemon slice on top of each chicken piece.

Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes until cooked through and the juices run clear.

If you pan-seared the breasts the cooking time will be reduced to 10 to 20 minutes.

In a large skillet, melt the butter or margarine; add the sliced mushrooms.

Sauté until the mushrooms are brown and have exuded their juices, about 6 minutes.

Sprinkle with the flour and blend.

In a large skillet, melt the 1/4 cup butter.
Add the fresh parsley at the last minute.

Add the chicken broth, stirring to make a medium thick sauce.

Allow to reduce, adjusting with a little more broth to make a creamy sauce.

Add fresh parsley at the last minute.

Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.

Spoon the sauce over the lemon baked chicken breasts and serve.

Easy to prepare using economical ingredients. A couple of improvements I made were to season the chicken breast with salt and pepper after thoroughly drying with paper towels. I then browned the breasts in the skillet to develop flavor and fond and used the same skillet to make the mushroom sauce. You could also use white wine instead of stock for the sauce. A great weeknight meal.
