  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup Marsala wine
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


  1. Place the chicken breasts between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound them to 1/4-inch thick using a meat mallet or rolling pin.
  2. In a shallow dish, combine the flour, salt, and pepper. Dredge each chicken breast in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess.
  3. In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter with 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.

  5. Pour the Marsala wine into the skillet and bring it to a boil. Cook for 2 minutes, scraping the brown bits from the bottom of the pan.
  6. Add the chicken broth and bring the mixture to a simmer. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the sauce has slightly thickened.
  7. Stir in the heavy cream and return the chicken breasts to the
