To begin with, all you need is boneless chicken (thigh/breast cut fillet like), mushrooms (2 packets), a cup of vegetable stock, 2 tbl spoons of cornflour, 1/2 a cup of red wine, 2 tbl spoons of ground pepper, dash of vinegar and soya sauce, 5-6 pods of garlic, olive oil and butter.
Grilled Chicken With Mushroom Sauce
Marinate the chicken in salt and vinegar for 20 mins.
In a medium non-stick sauce pan, heat some olive oil. Place the chicken fillet gently one at a time and sear it on each side till it browns. That should take approximately 4 mins per side, or till whenever you are convinced it is done. Take it off the pan and keep it separately.
In a slightly wider pan, heat a generous dollop of butter (take in the aroma :),
add a spoon of oil to avoid the butter from burning. Add the mashed pods of garlic, sauté it for a min, add all the sliced mushrooms, give it a good steer and shut the lid to let it cook for about 10 mins on medium heat…(psst..do take a look every now and then!) Now splash in some red wine and soya sauce. Let it cook again for another 5 mins. Now add the corn flour and vegetable stock. Let it further cook till it thickens to a brown sauce. Oh yeah..add salt and pepper!
Place the chicken on your favourite dish and pour the mushroom sauce over it. You could serve it against mashed potatoes, garlic bread, steamed veggies (our fav) or even a bed of rice! Goes perfectly with Red Wine or Virgin Mojito! (keep checking this space for a quick recipe of the later)
