makes:4 servings


boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 lb)


cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour


teaspoon salt


teaspoon pepper


tablespoon olive, canola or soybean oil


cup roasted garlic-seasoned chicken broth (from 14-oz can)

1 1/2

tablespoons Dijon mustard


jar (4.5 oz) Green Giant® sliced mushrooms, drained

Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place each chicken breast smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until 1/4 inch thick. In shallow dish, mix flour, salt and pepper.


In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Coat both sides of chicken with flour mixture. Cook chicken in hot oil 6 to 8 minutes, turning once, until chicken is no longer pink in center. Remove chicken to serving plate; cover to keep warm.


Stir broth into skillet. Heat to boiling over medium-high heat. Stir in mustard and mushrooms. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened. Spoon sauce over chicken. Sprinkle with thyme.
