Ingredients

  • 8 ounces boneless skinless chicken breast, sliced or pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onion (scallion)
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

Preparation

  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. Add half the oil to a large skillet over high heat. When oil begins to shimmer, add the chicken. Cook until the edges are opaque (about 4 minutes) then turn once and continue cooking until chicken is brown and cooked through (internal temp should be 165 ºF). Remove to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  3. In the same skillet over high heat, add half of the scallions. Fry until browned and crisp. Remove to a plate to save for garnish.  Place skillet back over medium-high heat and add the other half of the olive oil, and the garlic and parsley and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
  4. Add mushrooms, and remaining scallions to the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally until the mushrooms have browned and softened.
  5. Reduce the heat to medium-low and tuck the chicken and its juices back into the pan. Spoon the mushrooms over and allow to cook for 2 minutes. Garnish with fried scallions and enjoy.

Tips

To pound chicken, place it in a plastic bag or wrap in plastic wrap and pound with something heavy to an even thickness (about ½-inch thick).
