  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 lb boneless skinless boneless, skinless chicken breast, (four 4 oz pieces)
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1⁄2 tsp table salt, (more or less to taste)
  • 1⁄4 tsp black pepper
  • 1⁄2 cup marsala wine
  • 1 1⁄4 cup reduced-sodium beef broth, divided
  • 1 1⁄2 tbsp corn starch

  3. Add wine to skillet; simmer 1 minute. Add 3/4 cup of broth and simmer, uncovered, until chicken is tender and cooked through, about 8 minutes.
  4. Dissolve cornstarch in remaining 1/2 cup of broth in a small bowl; add to skillet. Simmer until sauce thickens, stirring constantly and incorporating mushrooms into the liquid, about 1 minute. Serve chicken with mushroom sauce spooned over top. Yields about 3 ounces of chicken and 1/3 cup of sauce per serving.
