Salt and pepper

1 tablespoon oil
2 large shallots, chopped - about cup
1/2 lb chanterelles, cleaned
1 tablespoon white flour
2 cups white wine
1 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup chopped parsley, plus 1 tablespoon
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard


Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter with the oil then add the chicken pieces and brown for 5 min on each side, uncovered.

Remove the chicken and set aside.

Turn the heat to medium and, if necessary, melt the rest of butter, then add the shallots and chanterelles. Cook for 5 min, stirring frequently, until soften. Add the flour and mix.

Poor in the wine and deglaze, rubbing the bottom of the skillet to get all the chicken juice.

When the chicken is tender, set aside in a presentation dish, covered with aluminum foil to keep it warm.
