2 Tbsp. Olive Oil

8 oz. white mushrooms

2 tsp. Italian herb seasoning

1.5 tsp. minced garlic

1.5 cups (8 oz.) pearl onions (cleaned with the outer layer removed and cut in half)
(You can also use frozen pearl onions, thawed.)

1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth

1 cup (187 mL) red wine
(We used Lindemans Merlot.)

2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
(Divide them into 4 or 6 servings.)

1 Tbsp. corn starch

1. Heat the oil in a non-stick cooking pot over medium-high heat. Cut the mushrooms in half or quarters and saute them in the pan until brown for about 3 to 5 minutes.

2. Add the Italian herb seasoning, garlic and onions to the mushrooms. Mix them thoroughly. Stir in the chicken broth and red wine. Bring it to a boil.

3. Add the chicken to the pot, cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for 16 minutes, turning the chicken over halfway through.

4. Remove the chicken and vegetables. Add corn starch to broth, increase heat to high and boil the sauce until it's reduced and thickened. (Approximately 5 minutes.)

5. Divide the chicken and vegetables into four or six servings. Pour the sauce over the top and serve.

Yield: 4 or 6 Servings
