Chicken Scaloppini with Mushrooms and Peppers
Our goal? Perfectly cooked chicken and a flavorful sauce in about a half-hour.
Why This Recipe Works
Sautéed chicken cutlets with a quick pan sauce make an ideal weeknight meal, and with a few tweaks, we perfected the classic. Most recipes call for browning the chicken before building the sauce, but we found that the thin cutlets overcooked and became dry as they sat while the sauce simmered. Bucking tradition, we first make the sauce and then dredge and brown the chicken. Mushrooms, peppers, shallots, garlic, and capers make for a flavorful sauce, finished with butter for silky texture and parsley for freshness.
