Chicken Charisma

This is a recipe that I put in the Woodland Cooks back in 1999 and I didn't write where I got the recipe.  I made this for my son who was flying out of San Antonio to go to Las Vegas to celebrate his 5th wedding anniversary. His wife was flying out of Houston, because they were taking their 2 sons to different grandparents while they were away.  We got Anthony duty, the Tovar's got Abram duty.  Aren't we  both lucky grandparents?

Printable Recipe:

4 tablespoons butter
1/2 pound mushrooms, sliced
5 chicken breasts
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon tarragon
1 teaspoon Beau Monde seasoning
1 cup white wine
1/2 cup sour cream
4 treen onions for garnish

1. In a non-stick skillet melt 2 tablespoons butter. Add mushrooms and saute' until tender (3-4 minutes). Remove mushrooms and add 2 tablespoons butter and brown chicken breasts on both sides. (turn frequently to prevent burning) Sprinkle with salt, tarragon, and Beau Monde while browning.
I sprinkled the side that went in the butter to brown, and then I sprinkled the side that was facing up.
2. After chicken is browned on both sides, pour wine over chicken and simmer (covered) for 20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken and add reserved mushrooms and sour cream. Stir; add chicken back in mixture and heat 2-3 minutes. Transfer chicken and mushrooms to a platter and sprinkle with green onions. Pour up sauce for people to serve themselves.
