This easy chicken is tasty with rice, or use the pasta of your choice. Feel free to use sliced asparagus instead of peas, or use another vegetable.


  • 4 chicken breast halves (boneless, without skin)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 6 ounces mushrooms (sliced baby portabella or button mushrooms)
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 ounces Boursin cheese (with garlic and herbs)
  • 1 cup peas (thawed from frozen)
  • 8 to 12 grape tomatoes (halved)
  • 1 tablespoon parsley (fresh, chopped)

Steps to Make It

  1. Wash chicken breast halves; pat dry.

  2. Put chicken between sheets of plastic and pound gently to an even thickness. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  3. In a large skillet, heat olive oil and butter over medium heat. Add chicken and cook for 5 to 7 minutes on each side, or until browned and cooked through. Remove to a plate and keep warm.

  4. Add the mushrooms to the same skillet and sauté until tender.

  5. Add the chicken broth and thawed peas. Simmer for 1 to 2 minutes.

  6. Stir in the Boursin cheese until well blended.

  7. Add the chicken and tomatoes; stir to blend, cover, and heat through.

  8. Remove from heat. Sprinkle with parsley, if desired.

  9. Serve over hot cooked fettuccine or similar pasta.
