Ingredients

4
boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 lb)
1/4
cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
2
tablespoons olive or canola oil
1/2
cup roasted garlic-seasoned chicken broth (from 14-oz can)
1
jar (4.5 oz) Green Giant™ sliced mushrooms, drained

tablespoons Dijon mustard
Chopped fresh thyme, if desired

  • 1 Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place each chicken breast smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of meat or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick. In shallow pan, stir together flour, salt and pepper.
