CHICKEN IN WHITE WINE SAUCE
- 2 free range chicken breast fillets
- olive oil to drizzle
- salt and pepper
- 2 tsp butter
- 1 small red onion, finely chopped
- 1 tsp crushed garlic
- 150g button mushrooms, sliced
- 1 cup white wine

1.) Cut the chicken fillets in half lengthways. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat and fry the fillets for a few minutes per side until just cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside.
2.) Pop the butter and onion in the same frying pan and cook until the onion has softened. Add the garlic and mushrooms and cook for a further 3 minutes. Add the white wine, stir and simmer for 3-4 minutes.
3.) Pour in the cream and season well. Allow the cream to heat up, then simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in the thyme and parsley, then add the chicken fillets back into the pan. Simmer for a further 5 minutes.
4.) Garnish with fresh chopped herbs and serve with your favourite side dish like rice, noodles or roasted veggies.
