  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken cutlets
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves, chopped
  • 1 pound button mushrooms, trimmed and quartered
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley


  1. Place flour in a shallow dish. Season chicken with salt and pepper, then coat with flour, shaking off excess.

  2. In a large skillet, heat oil and 1 tablespoon butter over medium-high. In batches, cook chicken until browned and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and tent loosely with foil.

  3. Reduce heat to medium, add thyme, mushrooms, and remaining 2 tablespoons butter, and cook until softened, 6 minutes.

  4. Add wine and broth and cook, stirring, until reduced by half, 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Return chicken to pan along with any accumulated juices; top with parsley.

    Made this for my girlfriend and while she loved it, I think it tastes a bit light. Garlic would help but I'd rather use something punchier, or maybe dried thyme instead of fresh.

    This one's a keeper. I loved the flavor of the wine sauce, so light and elegant. I added fresh green beans along w the mushrooms to give it some green. Didn't have fresh thyme so I added some fresh basil, dried thyme, and dried rubbed sage. My hubby was very happy w this dish. Looking forward to making it for the in-laws. TY Sarah!

    This is just the dish I was looking for! Simple, great taste and easy. I should have looked here first instead of searching elsewhere. The chicken was tender, the mushrooms were soft and silky and the spices added an extra kick. Loved it!

    Made this tonight, it came together great. Actually looked like the picture which is always nice! Tasted great and I already know I will be making it again. If you watch the video and follow the tips you can't go wrong.

    I would suggest only using fresh thyme for this recipe. I was really hoping the convenience and availability of dried would work out, but it definitely was not restaurant worthy. Not bad, but I know fresh will be much better. And probably only 1 tsp of dried thyme if you absolutely must.

    Because we can't have wheat does anyone have a suggestion of what to use instead of flour at the beginning? Maybe cornstarch, arrowroot, guar gum? I want to try this but we can't have the wheat.

    Really easy and delicious recipe. I'm always looking for a quick week night meal and hit the mark. I really liked the earthy flavors of the mushroom and thyme together. Next time I'll make a little more pan gravy. Also, I didn't have any white wine on hand so I substituted with some Chinese Xiaoshing wine and it was still delicious.
