Ingredients

    • 2 5-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed and tenders removed (see Tip)
    • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • 1 tablespoon canola oil
    • 1 medium shallot, minced
    • 1 cup thinly sliced shiitake mushroom caps
    • 2 tablespoons dry vermouth, or dry white wine
    • ¼ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
    • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
    • 2 tablespoons minced fresh chives, or scallion greens
  • Directions

    • 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 shallot to the pan and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 2 minutes. Pour in vermouth (or wine); simmer until almost evaporated, scraping up any browned bits, about 1 minute. 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.
