  • Salt and Pepper to Taster


Prep: 10 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes

  1. Heat olive oil in a large frying pan.
  2. Season chicken breasts generously on both sides with salt and pepper then place in the frying pan. Cook until golden brown on both sides and cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. Melt the butter in the pan then add the mushrooms. Cook until golden brown all over.
