1. Pre-heat oven to 375°. Season the chicken with 1/2 tsp. salt and pepper, to taste. Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat; add 1 Tbsp. olive oil, then add the chicken, skin-side down, and cook until the skin is golden brown, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a 9″ x 13″ baking dish, skin-side up; reserve the oil and drippings in the skillet.

2. Toss the mushrooms with the remaining 1 Tbsp. oil and season with salt and pepper; scatter around the chicken in the baking dish.

Bake until the mushrooms are tender and a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the chicken registers 160°, about 30-35 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, melt the butter in the reserved skilled over medium heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add the chicken broth and bring to a simmer, whisking. Add the wine, sugar, and 1/4 tsp. salt, and simmer until the sauce is reduced by half, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

4. Spoon some sauce onto a plate; top with a chicken breast and several mushroom pieces. Serve with mashed potatoes or Mashed Cauliflower.

5. Enjoy!
