    Serves: 4 

    • 4 tablespoons plain flour
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic granules
    • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets
    • 40g butter
    • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
    • 275g fresh mushrooms, sliced
    • 300ml sweet sparkling wine, divided
    • 350ml double cream or as needed

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hr 

    1. Mix together the flour, salt, pepper and garlic granules in a shallow bowl. Press the chicken breasts into the flour mixture to coat well. Set the coated chicken breasts aside on greaseproof paper; do not stack.
    2. Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium heat and cook and stir the mushrooms with 4 tablespoons of the wine until the mushroom juices have been absorbed and the mushrooms are beginning to brown, about 15 minutes. Push the mushrooms to the edge of the frying pan and place the coated chicken breasts into the centre of the pan. Brown the chicken breasts on each side, about 5 minutes per side and pour in the remaining wine. Cover the pan and cook until the chicken is no longer pink inside, about 10 minutes.
    3. Remove the chicken breasts from the pan and arrange on a warmed serving plate. Pour the cream into the frying pan, bring to the boil over medium heat and cook, stirring frequently, until the brown flavour bits on the bottom of the frying pan have dissolved and the sauce has thickened, about 10 minutes. Pour the sauce over the chicken and serve.

    Great! Went really well with tortellini (white sauce) and salad. Surprisingly sweet and delicious!  -  15 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I have made a similar dish, using Brut, instead of Asti.  -  20 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We eat a lot of chicken and this is one of the best recipes I had so far. I did use Brut instead of Asti but everything else was per recipe. We all loved it! I will make this again and again.  -  25 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
