Ingredients

kosher salt, to taste
ground black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons butter
1 large onion, chopped
1 large carrot, peeled and chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped
8 ounces mushrooms
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Directions

Step 1

Heat the oil in a large, high-sided skillet over medium heat.

Step 2

Season the chicken on both sides with the salt and pepper.

Step 3

Add the chicken to a skillet and cook it until it is golden, about 5 minutes per side.

Step 4

Transfer the chicken from the skillet and set it aside.

Step 5

In the same skillet, add the butter and melt it.

Step 6

Add the onion, carrot, celery, and mushrooms and cook them until they are soft, about 5 minutes.

Step 7

Add the flour and cook until the raw flour smell dissipates, about 1 minute.

Step 8

Pour in the wine and scrape up any bits on the bottom of the pan.

Reduce the wine by half, cooking for about 7 minutes.

Step 10

Add the broth and cream.

Step 11

Season with the parsley, thyme, salt, and pepper.

Serve.
