- 1/2 oz dried porcine mushrooms
- 4 chicken breast halves, skinned and boned
- 1 freshly ground pepper
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoon olive oil
- 3 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
- 3 small pear-shaped roma tomatoes, chopped
- 1/2 cup beef broth
- 1/2 cup dry red wine
- 1/4 cup balsamic or red wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon cold water
- 1 pkg fresh fettucine, cooked and drained (9-10 oz)
Soak mushrooms in hot water to cover until soft (about 20 minutes); drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the liquid. Rinse mushrooms and cut off tough mushroom stems.
Rinse chicken; pat dry. Sprinkle with pepper; dust with flour. Heat oil in wide non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook, turning once until well browned on both sides. Lift chicken from pan; set aside. Add garlic, tomatoes, and mushrooms to pan; stir for 1 minute. Add reserved 1/2 cup mushroom liquid, broth, wine and 3 tablespoons of vinegar. Boil for 3 minutes; remove from heat.
Bland cornstarch and water; stir into sauce in pan. Return chicken to pan, spooning sauce over it. Return to medium-low heat, cover and cook until meat in thickest part is no longer pink (about 10-12 minutes). Stir remaining 1 tablespoon vinegar into sauce. Pour fettucine onto a warm deep platter; top with chicken and sauce.
