INGREDIENTS:
4 5oz. Chicken Breast Halves Skinless and Boneless with Tenders removed
3 Tbsp Avocado Oil, divided
2 medium shallots, minced
2 Cups Mushrooms, sliced
1/4 Cup Vermouth or White Cooking Wine
1/2 Cup Low Sodium Organic Chicken Stock
1/4 Cup Vegan or Dairy Free Half& Half/Creamer ( I used Ripple Original Half & Half)
1/4 Cup Fresh Snipped Chives
Salt and Pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS:
Heat oven to 400F.
Season chicken with pepper and salt on both sides.
Heat 2 Tbsp of oil in a medium skillet over high heat. Sear the chicken breast turning once and adjusting the heat to prevent burning, until brown. Transfer to a baking sheet and finish the chicken breasts in the oven for 20 min. Add another Tablespoon of oil in the same pan. Add shallots to the pan and cook, stirring, until fragrant and soft, about a minute or so. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 2 minutes. Pour in vermouth (or wine); simmer until almost evaporated, scraping up any browned bits, about 1 minute. Pour in broth and cook until reduced by half, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in creamer and chives (or scallions); return to a simmer. Return the chicken to the pan, turn to coat with sauce and cook until heated through, about 1 minute. Enjoy!
