100 gr boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed and tenders removed

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon canola oil

1 medium shallot, minced

1 cup thinly sliced shiitake mushroom caps

2 tablespoon dry vermouth, or dry white wine

1/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

2 tablespoon heavy cream

2 tablespoon minced fresh chives, or scallion greens

Cooking Directions:

Step 1
Season chicken with pepper and salt on both sides.

Step 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. 12 to 16 minutes. Transfer to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.

Step 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.
