  • If using 2 larger chicken breasts, slice horizontally to make cutlets. Pound between plastic wrap to 1/2-inch thickness if uneven on one end. Season both sides with salt and pepper.
  • In a large skillet over medium high heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter with the olive oil. Add the chicken and brown, 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from skillet, cover with foil and set aside.
  • Add the garlic to the skillet and saute for 2 minutes on low. Add the mushrooms and 4 sprigs of thyme. Saute until mushrooms are browned, about 5 minutes on medium heat, stirring often.
  • Sprinkle the flour over the mushrooms. Stir and cook for 1 minute. Carefully add the marsala wine and chicken stock, bring to a boil. Stir constantly until reduced and sauce has thickened, about 3-4 minutes on medium high heat. Remove from heat and stir through the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Season to taste.
  • Transfer chicken back to skillet, turning to coat with sauce. Serve over mashed potatoes, steamed rice or side of choice.
