Chicken w/ Mushroom and Asparagus Cream Sauce

If you love mushrooms, you will love this easy and delicious dish. By using wine
and broth it makes it a healthy cream sauce alternative.

I used chicken cutlets that were frozen, they are just thinner chicken breasts, but you can use whatever kind of chicken you have.

I also used 3/4 C of white wine that I had left over, but you can use just chicken broth if that is what you have.


I served this over wheat penne pasta. You can use any kind of pasta, rice, or even spaghetti squash for a low carb option.

If you are doing low carb, this is a great low carb dish by itself with no squash, just substitute your flour for corn starch, to thicken.

This would even make a great vegetarian dish, just leave out the chicken :)

I would love to hear from you. Enjoy!
