Chicken Madeira
Most people go to Cheesecake Factory for the cheesecake, but I go for the Chicken Madeira.  Hands down my favorite menu item at the Factory. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Tiramasu Cheesecake, but in my opinion nothing beats the Chicken Madeira!

 

Juicy chicken and mushrooms in a madeira cream sauce under melty cheese and asparagus.  You can pair it with either pasta (el dente) or mashed potatoes.  If I had to chose between the two, i would prefer the pasta over mashed potatoes.  For me I am always looking for low carb sides, so I suggest Cauliflower fried rice or some roasted brussel sprouts.   This creamy Chicken Madeira is a copycat recipe of the most popular menu item at the Cheesecake Factory.  Once you take a bite, you will know why it is their most popular recipe!  It’s my favorite, it will be yours too!

INGREDIENTS:
    • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, trimmed (5 ounces)
    • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 6 tablespoons butter, divided
    • 2 cups white mushrooms, sliced thinly
    • 2 cups madeira wine
    • 2 cups beef broth
    • 1/2 pound asparagus, trimmed
    • 4 ounces mozzarella cheese
    • Parmesan cheese, shaved for garnish


DIRECTIONS:
  • Put the chicken between two pieces of saran wrap and lightly flatter using a rolling pin or heavy pot or flat mallet (don’t use a spiked side).
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat two tablespoons of butter in your skillet (that has a lid) on medium-high heat.
  • Cook the chicken on medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side, until slightly browned and just cooked through.
  • Remove the chicken, add in 2 more tablespoons of butter and add the mushrooms.
  • Cook on medium-high heat for 1-2 minutes before stirring, cook an additional 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove the mushrooms and put with the chicken on another plate.
  • Add in the Madeira wine and beef broth.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook for 10-12 minutes.
  • While sauce is reducing boil your asparagus for 3-5 minutes in another pot or microwave on a plate in a single layer with a wet paper towel on top for 4-5 minutes.
  • Add the chicken back into the pan, top with mushrooms and asparagus.
  • Cook an additional 1-2 minutes, cover the chicken with Mozzarella cheese and mushrooms.
  • Cover the pan and let cook for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted.
