How to make Grilled Chicken with Mushroom Sauce

  1. Heat the grilling pan add few tsps of olive oil when its hot lay the chicken and sear (1-2 minutes) one side turn quickly and reduce heat to sim cover and cook on a low heat for 10 minutes
  2. Allow it to rest for another 10 minutes remove from pan keep aside. (This process will make the breast piece really soft)
  3. In the same pan add the mushroom let it cook In the mean time add the chopped onion and garlic saute well.
  4. Keep it covered and cook until the mushroom are almost soft now add the spinach and spice powders(oregano ,basil thyme,pepper and salt) saute for 2 minutes as soon as the spinach begins to wilt add broth or water as per consistency required.
  5. when this begins to boil turn down the heat to lowest add the heavy cream and mozzarella cheese switch off stove.
  6. Arrange the chicken back into the pan sprinkle half tbsp parmesan cheese on each piece. Cover and keep the pan aside for the cheese to melt and flavours to mingle.
  7. The grilled chicken with mushroom sauce can be served with baked potato and salads or simply steamed veggies or just any bread which will soak the sauce.

My Tip:

The sauce can be made really thick by adding 2 tsp flour before adding spice saute it well until the raw smell goes then add the spices.
