Makes 4 servings

Wine pairing: A robust, dry, rich sherry.

Prep and cook time: About 20 minutes

  Basic chicken scaloppine
 2 teaspoons olive oil
 6 ounces common mushrooms, rinsed and quartered, or oyster mushrooms, rinsed and cut into bite-size pieces
 2 tablespoons minced shallots
 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
 1/2 cup dry sherry
 1/4 cup fat-skimmed chicken broth
 2 tablespoons whipping cream
 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  Salt and pepper
Step 1

Keep basic chicken scaloppine warm in a 200° oven.

Step 2

Add olive oil, mushrooms, shallots, and thyme to hot pan used to cook chicken (don't wash) and stir often over high heat until mushrooms are browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Spoon over chicken.

Step 3

Add sherry, chicken broth, and cream to pan; stir until mixture is boiling. Boil, stirring occasionally, until juices are slightly reduced, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Spoon sauce over chicken. Sprinkle with parsley and salt and pepper to taste.
