Chef Nicole Straight of Time To Eat! is back with another great solution to the weeknight dinner dilemma. So many mouths to little time. Here is a great one pan recipe that the kids can help prepare (if they're done with their homework). 

Enjoy this quick and easy recipe for Chicken With White Wine, Mushrooms & Pine Nuts.


Chicken With White Wine, Mushrooms & Pine Nuts

This is a great basic recipe that lends itself beautifully to many add-ins like sun-dried tomatoes, peas or preserved lemon slices.  I serve this with couscous or angel hair pasta for a quick and delicious weeknight meal.

6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs

1 C. flour

2 tbs. seasoning salt

1 tsp. pepper

2 Tbs. vegetable oil

1 C. button mushrooms, quartered

1 shallot, sliced

1 tsp. Italian seasoning

1/2 C. chicken stock

1/2 C. white wine

1 Tbs. unsalted butter

¼ C. toasted pine nuts

2 Tbs. flat leaf parsley, chopped

Heat oil in a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat.  Mix flour, salt and pepper in a plate and lightly dredge chicken in flour.  Add chicken to pan and sauté about 4 minutes per side.  Transfer to a plate.  Add mushrooms, shallots and Italian seasoning.  Saute mushrooms for 4-5 minutes, add butter, stock, pine nuts and mushrooms and return chicken to pan.  Simmer uncovered until chicken is cooked through and liquid thickens about 6 minutes.  Garnish with parsley before serving.  

Optional- Add 2 Tbs. julienned sun-dried tomatoes and/or 2 Tbs. thinly sliced preserved lemons when adding stock.
