Servings 4 people


  • 4 chicken breasts sliced in half to create 4 thin pieces of chicken
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon Herbs de Provence
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 cup sliced wild mushrooms
  • 1 shallot roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup French Red Wine
  • ¼ cup Chicken Stock
  • Fresh herbs for seasoning


  • Heat the olive oil and butter in a sauté pan.
  • Season the chicken with salt, pepper, Herbs de Provence and lightly dust with flour.
  • Sear the chicken in the olive oil butter mixture for 2-3 minutes on each side until fully cooked. Remove to a plate and set aside.
  • Add the chopped shallots and mushrooms to the pan and sauté for 4-5 minutes until the mushrooms are golden brown. Deglaze with the French Red wine and add chicken stock. Reduce the liquid until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.
  • Return the chicken back into the pan and serve immediately.
  • Scatter the top with fresh herbs


Use a very sharp knife to carefully split the chicken open in half the long way - to butterfly it into a single large, thin piece of chicken.

  1. Love everything about this and desperately need some recipes to use fresh herbs. Pots are absolutely gorgeous!

  2. chicken marsala has always been one of my favorite meals, and I NEVER make it - that needs to change soon | this looks beyond delicious

  3. This recipe looks so good! I love all of the wild mushrooms. These pans look super awesome and easy to organize.

  4. My cabinets are a mish mash of pots and pans I have inherited and a few I have purchased over the years. I think I should treat myself to these! And I would love to have some space freed up for other things!
    The chicken looks wonderful as well, but I can't take my eyes off of the cookware!!

  5. This sounds SO good! I love the chicken and mushroom combination, leftovers would make a great chicken and mushroom pie.

  6. This looks fabulous! What a great idea for dinner this week. Your mushrooms look completely gorgeous. Whenever I cook mushrooms I always hear Julia Child's voice in my head saying "don't crowd the mushrooms!" Ha!
