Sparkling Chicken

Recipe by  

"This is sweet and not at all kid-friendly. To cut the sweetness, I usually serve it with a salad. Very elegant and wonderful for Valentine's Day or anniversaries. Serve with white rice."

  1. Mix together the flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a shallow bowl. Press the chicken breasts into the flour mixture to coat well. Set the coated chicken breasts aside on waxed paper; do not stack.
  2. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir the mushrooms with 1/4 cup of the wine until the mushroom juices have been absorbed and the mushrooms are beginning to brown, about 15 minutes. Push the mushrooms to the edge of the skillet and place the coated chicken breasts into the center of the pan. Brown the chicken breasts on each side, about 5 minutes per side, and pour in the remaining 1 cup of wine. Cover the pan, and cook until the chicken is no longer pink inside, about 10 minutes.
  3. Remove the chicken breasts from the pan, and arrange on a warmed serving platter. Pour the cream into the skillet, bring to a boil over medium heat, and cook, stirring frequently, until the brown flavor bits on the bottom of the skillet have dissolved and the sauce has thickened, about 10 minutes. Pour the sauce over the chicken, and serve.

I wouldn't make this again. It's way too sweet! The first couple bites were good but then I got sick of eating it.

I have made a similar dish, using Brut, instead of Asti.

We eat a lot of chicken and this is one of the best recipes I had so far. I did use Brut instead of Asti but everything else was per recipe. We all loved it! I will make this again and again.

I always find what I need. And there's so many different choices. It saves me from wasting food all the time. I'm saving 5 ripe bananas today and making a cake. I saved a bunch of extra half and half and made a custard sugar pie. I always get compliments on my recipes this web site has been fun, interesting, and a life saver sometimes. Love all recipes!!

Made this tonight. I admit, I did not measure everything that went in. I used baby bellas as the mushrooms and a moscato as the wine. Overall, it got good reviews. I loved it; my husband was a little leery of the sweetness. I served prosciutto tortellini with the sauce as well. The sweetness in the sauce sparkled off the savory prosciutto. I will make this again, playing with different wines.
