Nicole’s Chicken Breasts

As it is impossible to escape Google’s watchful eye, I feel compelled to declare that the massive set of knockers on p. 7 under a Google image search of the name “Nicole Parton” are (sadly) not mine. In colloquial parlance, I believe these are known as “gazongas” or “jugs.” It’s a pity they’re not mine, but uh-uh. If I ever pose in public that way (which trust me, I never will), I’ll probably wear a mask and socks. But thank you for drawing this to my attention, Anonymous Reader. It’s good to set the record straight. PS: If the owner of said gazongas happens to read this, I would like to know the name of her personal trainer. Without further comment, the name of today’s recipe does seem appropriate.
Nicole’s Chicken Breasts:
3 whole chicken breasts, boneless, skinned, split
Milk, as required
⅓ c. all-purpose flour
½ tsp. seasoning salt
½ tsp. coarsely ground pepper
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
3 tbsp. butter or margarine, divided
1 c. sliced fresh mushrooms
1 - 10 oz. (284 mL) can cream of mushroom soup
2 tbsp. dairy sour cream
2 tbsp. cream cheese
3 tbsp. finely chopped green onions
¼ tsp. dried thyme leaves
Paprika or chopped parsley, as garnish
Preheat oven to 325 deg. F. Dip chicken breasts into a small amount of milk, just to moisten. Using a strong plastic food bag, shake chicken together with seasoned flour, coating lightly. Heat vegetable oil and 1 tbsp. butter in a heavy skillet on medium high. Add chicken and fry 3 min. per side, just until golden. Transfer chicken to lightly greased 2 qt. (2 L) casserole and set aside. Melt remaining 2 tbsp. butter in unwashed skillet on medium-low. Add mushrooms and sauté until tender. Add remaining ingredients except garnish, stirring just until heated through. Pour over chicken. Cover and bake 35 min. Dust with paprika or sprinkle with chopped parsley. Serves 4-to-6.
