Chicken Mascote

1-1/2 lb. chicken breasts
1 Tbs. dried basil
flour for dredging
salt and pepper to taste
2 to 3 Tbs. Olive oil for frying
2 tsp. chopped garlic
2 Tbs. lemon juice
2 tsp. chopped shallots
1 TBS cornstarch dissolved in 1 Tbs. water
8 large mushrooms, sliced
1 cup dry white wine or chicken broth
cooked pasta or white rice

Cut each cutlet into three pieces and pound very thin. Dredge in flour, shaking off excess. Saute chicken pieces a few at a time, cooking until golden, turning once. Set aside.

Discard all but a tablespoon of fat. Add garlic, shallots and mushrooms to pan and cook 2 minutes. Add wine or broth and cook until reduced by half. Add basil, salt and pepper and cornstarch mixture and cook until slightly thickened. Simmer sauce 2 minutes and return chicken to sauce to reheat. Serve over pasta or rice.

Makes 5 servings
