  • Slice each chicken breast in half long ways so each piece becomes two thinner pieces. 
  • Put potato starch into a small bowl.
  • Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper and dredge in potato starch. 
  • Heat skillet to medium high and coat with a tablespoon of olive oil.
  • In batches, cook the chicken breast pieces for 2 minutes on each side or until cooked through and nicely browned on the outside. Add more oil to the pan as needed with each batch until all chicken is cooked. 
  • While chicken is cooking finely chop onions and wash mushrooms. 
  • Once all chicken is cooked, set aside. 
  • Keeping the heat at medium-high, put another tablespoon of oil in the now empty skillet and add onions and mushrooms and cook until soft but not brown, around 6-10 minutes. Reduce heat if needed. 
  • Remove the onions and mushrooms from the pan.
  • Deglaze the pan with the Marsala.
  • Add the onions and mushrooms back into the pan and bring to a boil. Stirring occasionally, cook until most of the liquid is evaporated, about 2-5 minutes. 
  • While that is happening you can prepare chicken stock whisked together with 2 tablespoon of potato starch. Once most of the wine has evaporated from the step above, add the chicken stock mixture and cook another 2 minutes until sauce begins to thicken up. 
  • Reduce heat to medium- low, add tablespoon of non-dairy butter and fresh thyme. Stir to mix.
  • Add chicken back in, coat with mushroom sauce, and cook for 2-3 minutes to reheat chicken. 
  • Serve immediately. 


If sauce becomes too thick as it cools,  it can be thinned out with water or more chicken stock when reheating.
