2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp butter
4 chicken cutlets
1/3 cup flour
2 Tbsp parmesan cheese
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
1/4 cup champagne (Dry)
2/3 cup heavy cream (or evaporated milk)
pinch Kosher Salt
pinch Fresh Ground Black Pepper
1/8 tsp red peper flakes
1/4 tsp tarragon
6 oz angel hair pasta, cooked and drained
- Mix together the flour, salt, pepper, and grated Parmesan. Rinse the chicken pieces in water. Dredge them thoroughly in the flour mixture, until well coated.
- Heat olive oil and 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet on medium high heat. Add half of the chicken pieces, do not crowd the pan.
- Brown well on each side, about 3 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the pan and reserve to a plate. Cook the other breasts in the same manner, remove from pan. Cover with aluminum foil and keep warm in the oven while you prepare the sauce.
- Add the champagne and mushrooms to the pan. Use a spatula to scrape up the browned bits. Reduce the sauce by half. Whisk in cream, kosher salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes and tarragon. Heat until sauce thickens to a creamy consistency. Serve chicken and sauce over angel hair pasta.
