MUSHROOM CHICKEN IN CREAM SAUCE - TEJSZÍNES GOMBÁS CSIRKE


A delicate dish, you may add white wine, although it is not necessary. Never add sour cream. Sour cream would make it taste like a stroganoff and the aim here is to taste the cream. This is a fast skillet dish and please don’t ruin it with canned mushroom soup.

2 Tbsp olive oil
salt to taste
1/2 cup diced onions
4 cups fresh, sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup whipping cream
