Fun Facts About … Mushrooms!

Did you know that mushrooms were considered by the Egyptians to be the “plant of immortality”?  Only royalty was allowed to eat them.  So, if you want to feel like a royal, check out King Mushroom‘s offerings at the Farmers Market this weekend.  Who knows?  Maybe immortality awaits!  Pick your mushrooms (and all your other favorite fruits and vegetables) at Barrett Elementary School on Saturday, July 24, from 8 a.m. to noon.  And don’t forget your pre-orders for Saturday pickup!  We’ll see you at the Market!

RECIPE OF THE WEEK

Seared Chicken with Apricot Sauce

Seared chicken with apricot sauce

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, (about 1 1/4 pounds), trimmed and tenders removed 
  • ¾ teaspoon salt, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour 
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • ¾ cup dry white wine
  • 1 medium shallot, minced
  • 4 fresh apricots, pitted and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons apricot preserves
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon , or 1/2 teaspoon dried

INSTRUCTIONS

Place chicken breasts between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Pound with a rolling pin, meat mallet or heavy skillet until flattened to an even thickness, about 1/2 inch. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Place flour in a shallow dish. Dredge chicken in flour, shaking off excess. (Discard any leftover flour.)

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook until browned and no longer pink in center, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate, cover and keep warm. (If necessary, cook chicken in two batches with an additional 1 tablespoon oil.)

Off the heat, add wine and shallot to pan. Return to medium heat and cook, scraping up any browned bits, until slightly reduced, about 3 minutes. Add apricots and cook until fruit begins to break down, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in preserves, tarragon and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Return chicken to the pan and cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve chicken with sauce.
