1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
4 Tbsp. butter, divided
2 Tbsp. olive oil
12 oz. mixed mushrooms (chanterelle, baby bella, shiitake), about 6 c. chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced, divided
1/4 c. chopped shallots
1 c. dry white wine
1 can (14-oz.) diced tomatoes
1 Tbsp. capers
4 Tbsp. chopped basil, divided
1 tsp. chopped rosemary
4 c. low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 c. heavy cream
1/2 c. water
1 c. grits


1. Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper.

2. In a large saute pan, heat butter and olive oil over medium heat until butter is melted. Add chicken and saute for about 2-3 min. per side until browned. Remove from pan to plate and reserve.

3. Add chopped mushrooms and saute, stirring occasionally. After about 2 min., add garlic and shallots. Continue to cook for another 2 min. Add wine to pan, bring to a boil and reduce until almost gone, about 4 min. Add tomatoes and juice; continue to boil until slightly reduced, another 3-4 min. Add capers, 2 Tbsp. basil and rosemary. Turn heat to low.

4. Make the grits by bringing the broth, cream, water, garlic, and butter to a boil. Slowly whisk the grits into the liquid. Bring back to a boil, reduce heat and cook, stirring occasionally for 15-20 min. or until grits are thickened. Turn heat to low and stir occasionally while finishing chicken.

5. Add chicken and any accumulated juice back to pan with mushroom tomato sauce. Turn heat to medium and cook chicken for about 5 min. until chicken is heated through.

6. Divide grits into soup bowls, place two pieces of chicken on

top of each bowl, spoon mushroom tomato sauce on top. Garnish with additional 2 Tbsp. basil and serve.
