Elizabeth Taylor's Chicken with Avocado and Mushrooms






  1. Sprinkle avocado with lemon juice. Cover and refrigerate.
  2. Season chicken with salt and pepper.
  3. In a large heavy skillet, over low heat, heat 3-4 tablespoons butter, and sauté chicken until juices run yellow when pricked with a fork - about 35-40 minutes. Use two skillets if necessary, adding more butter as needed. Transfer cooked chicken to a serving dish. Cover loosely with aluminum foil. Keep warm in a 300 degree F oven for 15 minutes while preparing sauce.
  4. Add shallots to skillet. Cook over medium heat, stirring and scraping sides and bottom of pan with a wooden spoon. Add cognac and wine, and bring to a boil. Boil until mixture has almost evaporated. Add cream and boil 5 minutes longer.
  5. In a saucepan over high heat, sauté mushrooms in 3 tablespoons butter.
  6. Add chicken stock to cream mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thick. Add mushrooms, remaining cognac and avocado cubes. Stir until well blended. Pour over chicken. Sprinkle with parsley.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings
