8ozBaby Bella or white mushrooms,cleaned, trimmed, and sliced
2tablespoonchopped fresh garlic
1tablespoonfreshly squeezed lemon juice,juice of ½ lemon
Handful baby spinach,optional
Pat chicken cutlets dry. Season on both sides with ½ tablespoon dried oregano, ½ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon black pepper. Coat the chicken cutlets with the flour; dust off excess. Set aside briefly.
Heat 2 tablespoon olive oil in a large cast iron skillet with a lid like this one. Brown the chicken cutlets on both sides (3 minutes or so). Transfer the chicken cutlets to a plate for now.
In the same skillet, add more olive oil if needed. Add the mushrooms and saute briefly on medium-high (about 1 minute or so). Then add the tomatoes, garlic, the remaining ½ tablespoon oregano, ½ teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper, and 2 teaspoon flour. Cook for another 3 minutes or so, stirring regularly.
Now add the white wine, cook briefly to reduce just a little; then add the lemon juice and chicken broth.
Bring the liquid to a boil, then add the chicken back in the skillet. Cook over high heat briefly (about 3 minutes), then reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and cook for another 7 to 8 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked and its internal heat registers a minimum of 165 degrees F.
If you like, stir in a handful of baby spinach just before serving. Enjoy hot with your favorite small pasta like orzo and a crusty Italian bread!
Make ahead tips: Cut the chicken breast into cutlets, and clean and slice the mushrooms a day in advance.
Leftovers: Can be stored in the fridge for up to four days. Reheat on the stovetop over medium heat, adding a little water and covering the skillet to reheat gently without drying out.
