White Wine Almond Chicken


Best company recipe I ever tried. It was originally given to my mother 30 yrs ago, and she had to swear to keep it a secret! A good accompaniment for this is brown or wild rice, and broccoli.

  • ¾ cup white wine

  • 1 cup chicken broth

  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced

  • 1 white onion, finely chopped

  • 1 cup sliced almonds

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves


  1. Heat wine, broth and most of the cream (reserve a little) in a medium saucepan over medium low heat. Thicken flour with reserved cream, enough to make a thin paste. Add this to saucepan, stirring constantly until sauce has thickened. Stir in mushrooms and onions.

  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F(165 degrees C).

  3. Place chicken in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Pour sauce over chicken and top with almonds. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours.
