Chicken Breasts and Mushroom Artichoke Ragu
- 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

- 1/4 tsp dried tarragon
- 1/4 tsp granulated sugar
