The salt levels will concentrate during the reduction time. Low-sodium chicken broth may be substituted or use a light hand when seasoning further during each cooking step.

2 {12-ounce} boneless, skinless chicken breasts {about 1 1/2 lbs}
1/3 cup all purpose flour
3/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup olive oil
2/3 cup marsala or port
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 Tbsp butter
1 {8-oz} package crimini mushrooms, trimmed & quartered
1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
Optional: Hot cooked vermicelli noodles

Slice each chicken breast in half lengthwise to create 4 {1/2-inch} thick pieces. Place the chicken between plastic wrap & pound to a
1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet. Combine the flour, the salt & the pepper on a plate.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Heat the oil over Medium-High in a 13-inch skillet. Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture then place them in the hot oil. Cook 4 minutes per side or until the chicken registers 165 degrees using a thermometer. Remove them from the skillet & place on a wire rack over a half sheet pan. Keep warm in the oven.

 Add the marsala or port & the chicken broth to the same skillet scraping the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Bring to a boil & cook until reduced by half, stirring occasionally, about 4 minutes. Add the cream & cook an additional 1 to 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small skillet over Medium heat & add the mushrooms. Season them with a smattering of kosher salt & pepper. Cook 6 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally or until all of the liquid has evaporated & the mushrooms are golden brown. Add them to the reduction sauce. Sprinkle with parsley. Divide the chicken between 4 shallow bowls or plates. Spoon the mushroom mixture over the chicken.
