Recipe for :

Chicken Scaloppini with Mushroom Sauce
This is one of the recipes that has been provided by Shirley Cline from San Fransisco. This is what Shirley ahd to say:

"I watched Nick Stellino make this on his cooking show and I copied down the recipe and instructions. I made it the other night and it was DELICIOUS. I made a slight change. Because I thought the sauce was a bit too thin, I mixed some Wondra flour with some heavy cream for thickening (to my liking). When the sauce was done, I added 2 tblsp. of butter just before serving".


6 boneless chicken breasts
1/2 tsp. salt
1 recipe mushroom sauce
1/2 tsp. pepper
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup olive oil
2 Tblsp. chopped parsley

Mushroom Sauce:
3 1/2 cups chicken stock
3/4 oz. dried porcini mushrooms,
1 lb. small white button mushrooms, chopped
1 lb. small crimini mushrooms, chopped
1 large clove garlic, minced
1 cup white wine
1/2 cup heavy cream


Preparing Mushroom Sauce:
Bring the chicken stock to a boil, turn off the heat and soak the porcini in the stock, about 20 minutes. When cool, remove from stock, save the liquid for sauce and chop the porcini. Mix all of the chopped mushrooms together. Saute them in olive oil on high heat 10 - 15 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 4 - 5 minutes. Add wine and deglaze, reducing to half, 4 - 5 minutes. Add 2 1/2 cups of the stock that the mushrooms were soaking in, save the rest if sauce is too thick and the cream. Bring to a boil and then reduce and simmer for 15 - 25 minutes. Turn off heat until chicken is prepared.

Preparing the chicken:
Slice chicken breasts at an angle into three pieces. Pound into thin scaloppini, using plastic wrap. Flour pieces and pat off excess. Fry pieces in hot olive oil until well browned but do not cook all the way through because you will finish them in the sauce, 2 - 3 minutes per side. Must be nice and brown. Put into the sauce and cook until good and hot and cooked through 3 - 4 minutes. Place in a platter and our sauce over top. Serve immediately.

"The mushroom sauce would be great over pork chops.   I am going to try that soon".
