  • 1 C Ready-Set-Serve Sliced Yellow Onions 
  • 2 C Markon First Crop Mushrooms, sliced 
  • 2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic, minced 
  • 1 tsp. Markon First Crop Thyme 
  • 1 tsp. Katy’s Kitchen Kosher Salt 
  • 1/4 tsp. Katy’s Kitchen Black Pepper 
  • 2 Tbsp. Katy’s Kitchen All-purpose Flour 
  • 1 Tbsp. Ready-Set-Serve Lemon Juice 
  • 2 Tbsp. Dijon Mustard 
  • 1 C Shamrock Farms Heavy Whipping Cream 
  • 1 C Shamrock Farms Whole Milk 
  • 24-oz. Ready Set-Serve Broccolini® Baby Broccoli, steamed and seasoned with salt and pepper


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large sauté pan or skillet. Add the seasoned chicken breasts and cook on medium-high heat until they turn golden brown. FRemove from pan and reserve. 
  2. Add the remaining two tablespoons of oil to the hot pan. Sauté the onions and mushrooms until softened; add garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper, then cook on medium heat until incorporated (one to two more minutes). Deglaze with lemon juice. 
  3. When lemon juice cooks off, sprinkle the pan with flour, stirring to create a mini-roux (be sure to cook for at least two minutes so the sauce does not taste of raw flour). Add mustard, whipping cream, and milk to the pan, whisking until thickened.
