  • 6 thin chicken filets/cutlets or two large chicken breasts cut lengthwise in half
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 cups brown mushrooms sliced
  • 1/4 cup shallots finely chopped
  • 3 tsp garlic minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth low sodium
  • 3/4 cup dry marsala wine
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream 33%
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley chopped


  • In a large sealable food storage bag shake together flour, salt, and pepper. Place chicken filets, one at a time, into bag and shake well to fully coat.
  • Heat olive oil and butter over medium-high heat in a 13 inch frying pan.
  • Cook chicken until internal temperature of 165 degrees F is reached. Remove chicken from pan and set aside for now.
  • In the same pan with leftover butter and oil, add in sliced mushrooms, shallots, and garlic. Cook over medium high heat until mushrooms are browned and soft, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Pour in chicken broth and wine. Cook over low-medium heat until the liquid appears to be cooked down to half the volume, 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Stir in heavy cream and thyme. Add chicken back in and simmer over low heat 7 to 10 minutes until sauce thickens.
  • Sprinkle fresh parsley over top before serving.
