Great Aunt Lorraine's Chicken Moran

Wow! It's been almost a month since my last post! Moving is NOT easy! It's amazing how many things you acquire and how many things you really don't need. But it is what it is, we're finally starting to settle in to our new place and we're loving it. So my first dinner in our new house came from my Great Aunt and let me tell you, it was absolutely DELICIOUS! Chicken Moran is what she called it. I served it with angel hair pasta tossed in butter, garlic powder, parsley or oregano (whichever you prefer) and parmesan cheese. This is a winner. So easy to make and just typing this out makes me want to make it again tonight! I hope you enjoy it as much as we did! Click here to PRINT RECIPE.
6 Boneless Chicken Breasts
1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour (use more if you need to)
Salt and Pepper
3/4 cup Butter, divided
1 cup sliced fresh Mushrooms
3/4 cup dry White Wine (I used Scuppernong by Duplin, much like a Moscato wine)
1/2 cup Chicken Broth
Juice of half Lemon
1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
1) Pound chicken to 1/8 thickness between waxed paper or in a ziploc bag.
2) Season the flour in a bowl with salt and pepper.
3) Dredge chicken in flour mixture.
4) Cook chicken, several pieces at a time in 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat for 6-8 minutes, turning them once. Add more butter after you flip the chicken. Keep pan and reserve drippings.
5) Place chicken in a 9x13 inch, non-stick sprayed baking dish.
6) Sauté mushrooms in 1/4 cup of butter in the original pan that you cooked the chicken.
7) Once cooked, sprinkle the mushrooms over the chicken.
8) Add the wine and chicken broth to the pan drippings, scrape pan and simmer for 10 minutes.  You can add some flour or cornstarch to this mixture if you want a thicker sauce.
9) Add lemon juice.
10) Pour mixture over chicken and mushrooms.
11) Sprinkle cheese on top and bake at 450°F for 10-12 minutes. Serve with garlic butter pasta.
