NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 4 chicken cutlets (about 1 1/4 pounds), patted dry
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • All-purpose flour, for dredging
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 8 ounces mushrooms (button, cremini, shiitake or a combination), quartered
  • 1 1/4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups sugar snap peas, stemmed and halved lengthwise
Directions

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Add 1 tablespoon oil to the skillet. Dredge 2 chicken cutlets in flour, shake off any excess and place in the skillet. Cook until golden, about 1 1/2 minutes per side; transfer to a baking dish. Repeat with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and the other 2 chicken cutlets. Cover the dish loosely with foil; place in the oven while you prepare the vegetables.

Add the butter to the hot skillet, then add the scallions and mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms brown, about 4 minutes. Pour in the broth and bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits with a wooden spoon. Cook until the liquid is reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Add the cream and boil until the sauce thickens slightly, 3 to 4 more minutes. Stir in the snap peas and heat through; season with salt and pepper. Serve the chicken topped with the creamy vegetables.
