Chicken Chasseur Recipe for One Person


1 boneless, skinless chicken breast

Salt and pepper, to taste

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1/2 small onion, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, minced

1/2 cup sliced mushrooms

1/4 cup dry red wine (such as Pinot Noir or Merlot)

1/2 cup chicken broth

1 tablespoon tomato paste

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary

Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish


Prepare the Chicken:

Season the chicken breast with salt and pepper, then lightly coat it with flour, shaking off any excess.

Cook the Chicken:

In a skillet or frying pan, heat the olive oil and butter over medium-high heat.

Add the chicken breast to the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.

Make the Sauce:

In the same pan, add the chopped onion and cook for 2-3 minutes until softened.

Add the minced garlic and sliced mushrooms to the pan. Cook for another 3-4 minutes until the mushrooms are tender.

Deglaze with Wine:

Pour in the red wine and stir, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan.

Allow the wine to simmer for 2-3 minutes to reduce slightly.

Simmer with Broth and Seasonings:

Stir in the chicken broth, tomato paste, dried thyme, and dried rosemary.

Return the cooked chicken breast to the pan, nestling it into the sauce.

Simmer for 5-7 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld and the sauce to thicken slightly.

Garnish and Serve:

Sprinkle chopped fresh parsley over the chicken just before serving.

Serve and Enjoy:

Serve the Chicken Chasseur hot, accompanied by your choice of side dishes such as mashed potatoes, rice, or crusty bread.
