    2       lg           Boneless chicken breasts
                         - split
                         Salt and pepper -- as desired
      1/2   lb           Mushrooms
    6       tb           Olive oil
      2/3   c            Sherry vinegar
    2       tb           Tomato paste
    2       tb           Chopped parsley
   TRIM EXCESS SKIN from the breasts. Sprinkle breasts with salt and pepper
   and set aside. Quarter larger mushrooms, halve smaller ones and set aside.
   Heat 1 tablespoon oil in an aluminum skillet or frying pan over high heat
   and brown chicken on skin side. Transfer the chicken to a plate and pour
   off fat. Reduce heat to medium, pour in vinegar and dissolve the tomato
   paste in it. Replace chicken in skillet, skin side up. Cover and cook 3
   minutes. Uncover; cook until chicken is done, 6 minutes. While the chicken
   is cooking, heat 1 teaspoon oil in another frying pan and cook the
   mushrooms about 3-to-4 minutes. Arrange chicken and mushrooms on platter.
   Whisk in the rest of the olive oil; mix in parsley. Pour juices that have
   collected on the platter into sauce. Pour sauce over chicken and mushrooms;
   serve immediately.
