Chicken David

(You may have noticed the unusual picture.  Since I couldn’t find a good photo of this recipe and this weird one showed up on my google search instead, I couldn’t pass it up.  You can see why.  Scroll over the image with your mouse if you’d like the source, or google image “chicken david” like I did!)

I love this recipe!!  I prefer to either cook half the amount of chicken, or double the amount of the other ingredients so there’s extra sauce to serve with noodles.  Yum!

3 T butter

1 onion, chopped

8 fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced

1 clove of garlic, minced

1/4 lb thinly sliced prosciutto, cut into strips

1/4 lb thinly sliced hard salami, cut into strips

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

1 cup all-purpose flour

s & p

1/2 cup dry sherry (I just use a dry white like Pinot Grigio)

1 cup chicken broth

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup marinara sauce (such as this one)

1 T butter

2 T chopped fresh parsley

Melt 3 T butter in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Saute onion until soft and translucent. Stir in mushrooms, garlic, prosciutto and salami. Dredge chicken in flour and place in pan. Season with s & p. Cook chicken 5 minutes on each side. Pour in sherry and cook until liquid is reduced by half. Stir in chicken broth, cream and marinara. Simmer until sauce is reduced to your preferred consistency. Stir in 1 T butter, and sprinkle with parsley.
