You can essentially use any mixture of vegetables you want, but the combined flavor and texture of grilled mushrooms and artichokes is fantastic.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup button mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 1/2 Tbs caramelized onion infused olive oil divided (you can also use garlic infused oil or basic olive oil)
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 Tbs unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 can artichoke hearts, quartered and rinsed
  • 1 tsp fresh basil, minced
  • 1/4 tsp dried tarragon
  • 1/4 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp white wine vinegar

Directions

  • Sauté onions in 1 Tbsp. of oil in a cast iron skillet on medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and cook until browned, 5 to 7 minutes, tossing occasionally. Remove mushrooms and onions, set aside.
  • Sear chicken in 1 Tbsp. of oil in the skillet until browned on one side, about 4 minutes. Flip the chicken and sear it for an additional 3 minutes. Deglaze the skillet with the wine and broth; cover and simmer 8 to 10 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, combine sugar, honey, white wine vinegar and remaining caramelized onion oil; set aside. In a separate bowl combine butter and flour.
  • Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and cover to keep warm.
  • Bring the wine mixture to a simmer on high heat. Whisk in the honey-vinegar mixture and 1 Tbsp. of the flour-butter mixture. Cook until thickened, about 3 minutes.
  • Add reserved mushroom mixture, artichokes, basil, dried tarragon, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • To serve, slice chicken and arrange on plates with mashed potatoes and ragu.
