Admittedly, most versions of this recipe will thicken the sauce with flour to form a gravy. ¬†I actually like the flavor better without the flour-y taste – but it’s up to you.


  • 1 T olive oil
  • 4 T butter
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken – thighs or breasts, cut into about 2″ pieces (I could beg you to use thighs, but I won’t ūüôā
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried thyme (or 2 generous tablespoons fresh thyme, better yet)
  • 8 oz mushrooms, sliced; ¬†– your choice. ¬†To make it easy, just buy the pre-sliced ordinary ones
  • 2/3 c white wine – or marsala, if you happen to have it
  • 1/3 c chicken broth (or a little more)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 T heavy cream – or half & half (or a little more)
  • 1/4 c parsley, chopped (optional)
  • previously cooked pasta or rice (optional)
  • a sprinkling of grated cheese; we like gruyere (optional)

In a large skillet over medium high heat, heat the oil and butter. ¬†Add the chicken, salt, and pepper and stir and fry until the chicken is almost cooked – about 3-4 minutes. ¬†Reduce the heat to medium and add the garlic, thyme, mushrooms, wine, and broth and simmer until the mushrooms are tender and the sauce has reduced – about 5 minutes. ¬†Add the lemon juice and cream and bring back to a simmer. ¬†If you want more broth, add a little more chicken broth and a little more cream. ¬†If you’re worried about the chicken (especially breasts) getting dry, take them out before saut√©ing the mushrooms and then add them back in. ¬†Add the parsley, if you want.

Remove the chicken from the heat.  Serve it on its own with crusty artisan bread Рor add cooked pasta or rice.
