  • 2 (8-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 5 ounces white mushrooms trimmed, wiped clean, and sliced thin (about 2 cups)
  • 1 small leek white part halved lengthwise, washed, and chopped (about ½ cup)
  • 1 medium garlic clove minced
  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth divided
  • ½ Tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tablespoon Bisto
  • ½ Tablespoon minced parsley for garnish


For the Chicken

  • Use tip of sharp chef’s knife to cut each breast horizontally, starting at thinnest end and stopping knife tip ½ inch away from edge so that halves remain attached. Open up breasts to create 2 cutlets. Place 1 cutlet at a time in heavy-duty zipper-lock bag and pound to ¼-inch thickness (cutlet should measure about 8 inches by 6 inches). Trim about ½-inch from long sides of cutlets to form rectangles that measure about 8 by 5 inches. Process all trimmings in food processor until smooth, about 20 seconds. Transfer puree to medium bowl and set aside.

For the Stuffing

  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until all moisture has evaporated and mushrooms are golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Add leeks; continue to cook, stirring frequently, until softened, 2 to 4 minutes. Add garlic and thyme, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Transfer mixture to bowl of food processor fitted with steel blade. Return pan to heat; add wine and scrape pan bottom to loosen browned bits. Transfer wine to small bowl and set aside. Rinse and dry skillet.
  • Pulse mushroom mixture in food processor until roughly chopped, about five 1-second pulses. Add pureed chicken, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Pulse process until fully incorporated, about five 1-second pulses. Transfer mushroom mixture to bowl with pureed chicken.

To Assemble and Cook

  • With thinnest ends of cutlets pointing away from you, spread one-half of stuffing evenly over each cutlet with rubber spatula, leaving ½-inch border along short sides and long sides. Roll each breast up as tightly as possible without squeezing out filling and place seam-side down. Evenly space 3 pieces cooking twine (each about 12 inches long) beneath each breast and tie, trimming any excess.
  • Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat remaining tablespoon oil in skillet over medium-high heat until just smoking. Add chicken bundles and brown on 4 sides, about 2 minutes per side. Add broth and reserved wine to pan and bring to boil. Reduce heat to low, cover pan, and cook until instant-read thermometer registers 160° F when inserted into thickest part of chicken, 12 to 18 minutes. Transfer chicken to cutting board and tent loosely with foil.

To Make the Sauce and Serve

  • While chicken rests, whisk mustard and lemon juice into cooking liquid. Increase heat to high and boil, scraping pan bottom to loosen browned bits, until dark brown and reduced to ½ cup, 7 to 10 minutes. Reduce heat to medium; Add cream and remaining chicken broth mixed with Bisto. Cook, stirring constantly until thickened; season with salt and pepper. Remove twine and cut each chicken bundle on bias into 6 medallions. Spoon sauce over chicken and serve.
