Chicken with Mushroom and Wine Sauce


  • 1 1/2 lbs boneless/skinless chicken
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup fresh chopped leeks, pale green & white parts
  • 3 cups mixed sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh marjoram
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup mushroom broth
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large saucepan, sauté the chicken in the olive oil until light brown in color. Stir in garlic, leeks, mushrooms and marjoram and continue to cook, stirring often, until mushrooms begin to wilt (about 5-10 minutes). Add broth and wine, reduce heat to simmer and cook for 20-30 minutes, uncovered.

    Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve with rice, pasta or polenta.
