Here is a recipe to prepare chicken breast with mushroom sauce:
- 4 chicken breasts
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
- 200 g of mushrooms, sliced
- 1 cup of chicken broth
- 1/2 cup of heavy cream (liquid cream)
- 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley (optional)
1. Prepare the chicken breasts: Wash the chicken breasts and dry them with absorbent paper. Season both sides with salt and pepper to taste.

Remove the chicken breasts from the pan and let them rest on a plate covered with aluminum foil to keep warm.
