Princess Chicken … a lighter take


  • 6  (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 3  tablespoons  butter, divided
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 4  ounces  morel mushrooms
  • 4  ounces  button mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 2  cups  fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4  cup  whipping cream
  • 4 1/2  cups  hot cooked egg noodles
  • Fresh flat-leaf parsley sprigs (optional)


1. Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; flatten to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or small heavy skillet. Heat 2 teaspoons butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle chicken evenly with salt and pepper. Add 2 breast halves to pan, and cook for 3 minutes on each side or until done. Repeat procedure twice with 4 teaspoons butter and remaining chicken. Keep warm.

2. Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter in pan over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms to pan; sauté 5 minutes or until moisture evaporates, stirring frequently. Remove mushroom mixture from pan. Add broth to pan; bring to a boil, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Cook until reduced to 1 cup (about 5 minutes). Return mushroom mixture to pan. Stir in cream; cook 2 minutes or until slightly thick, stirring occasionally.

3. Place 3/4 cup egg noodles on each of 6 plates. Cut each chicken breast half into 1-inch-thick strips. Top each serving with 1 chicken breast half and about 1/3 cup mushroom mixture. Garnish each serving with parsley sprigs, if desired.
