  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 3 tbsp butter divided
  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken breast boneless, skinless
  • 12 ounces mushrooms washed and sliced
  • 2 tbsp shallots diced
  • 1 tbsp garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup marsala
  • 1 cup chicken bone broth
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup green onions sliced
  • 2 tbsp parsley chopped
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum


  • Bring 1 tbsp of butter and the avocado oil to a sizzle in a large skillet. Season the chicken and then brown it on both sides for 2-3 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Set the chicken aside.
  • Add another tbsp of butter and sauté the mushrooms, shallots, and garlic until the mushrooms are tender and have given up their liquid - about 4-5 minutes.
  • Deglaze with the bone broth and then add the cream. Simmer and reduce by about a third.
  • Put the chicken and any juices back into the sauce and simmer until the chicken is cooked through to 165-F. Add the Marsala wine and whisk in the remaining tbsp of butter. Add the green onions.
  • Thicken with xanthan gum (optional), top with parsley, and serve!
