  • 4Servings


  • 4 6-oz 
boneless, skinless 
chicken breasts
  • 1/2 tsp 
each sea salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 oz 
cremini or white button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 
yellow onion, 
finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp dried tarragon
  • 2 tbsp whole-wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup 
dry sherry or dry 
white wine
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup full-fat cream cheese
  • 1 lb green beans, trimmed


  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Mist a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat on medium-high. Add chicken and cook, turning once, until golden brown, about 6 minutes. Transfer 
to a plate.
  2. In same skillet on medium-high, heat oil. Add mushrooms and onion and sauté, stirring often, until no liquid remains and mushrooms 
are beginning to brown, about 
3 minutes. Add garlic and tarragon and sauté until fragrant, about 
45 seconds. Add flour and stir 
until well combined.
  3. Add sherry and cook, scraping 
up browned bits from bottom of 
pan, until reduced by half, about 
30 seconds. Stir in broth. Return chicken and any juices to skillet. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook, turning chicken halfway through, until chicken is no longer pink inside, about 10 minutes. Whisk in cream cheese until smooth. Cover and keep warm. 
  4. Meanwhile, in a steamer basket set over a saucepan of simmering water, cook beans until tender-crisp, about 4 minutes. Divide beans among plates and top with chicken and mushroom sauce.
