Chicken Portifino

Chicken Portifino
24 servings
12 8-oz. boneless skinless chicken breasts, halved
1 C. all-purpose flour, seasoned with salt and pepper
3 C. vegetable oil
1 1/2 C. butter
1 lb., 4 oz. sliced mushrooms
1 lb. caramelized cooked onion slices
1-1/2 C. green onions, chopped
3/4 C. dry white wine
1-1/2 C. chicken stock (or broth)
1 lb., 8 oz. (6 each) red bell peppers, roasted and quartered

Lightly dust chicken with seasoned flour on all sides. Cook chicken in oil over medium heat until browned; remove chicken and discard pan grease.

Add butter to pan. When melted, add mushrooms, caramelized onions and green onions. Cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Deglaze pan with wine. Add stock and bring to boil; simmer mixture 2 minutes.

2 quesions about the chicken version (im a cooking moron, so please bear with me!)...

1. during the deglaze with white wine part..do u keep the veggies in during this part?.

2. what do you reccomend serving this over..pasta, rice, etc?

I'd like to try this. Sounds wonderful. Do you think I can cut it down for 2 people?

Mugsy, I'd remove the mushrooms etc from the pan, since you want to soften them for 3 mins., before you deglaze. I'd probably serve the whole thing over capalinni or angel hair (a thin noodle) pasta, & ladle the sauce w veggies & mozzarella over the pasta. Rice sounds good too. Hope that makes sense.

Spice, I'm sorry, but don't know how to cut it down to 2 servings. Not sure what the ratio would be. Maybe somone will have the answer. You could freeze the leftovers, maybe?
