  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400° F.
  2. In an oven-proof skillet on medium heat brown the chicken. Season all chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides. Add the butter to the pan, allow to melt and sear the chicken for 3 minutes per side.
  3. Once the chicken has been browned, remove it from the skillet and set it aside. You need to brown the chicken to ensure that it locks in the moisture during the cooking process.
  4. Once the chicken has been removed from the pan add a splash of broth to deglaze the bottom of the pan, about 2 tablespoons. The broth with help to remove any charred bits from the bottom of the pan, you want to keep this as it will add more flavour to the dish.
  5. When the pan has been deglazed, add the onion and garlic to the pan and allow to cook for 1-2 minutes until softened.
  6. Return the chicken to the pan, laying it evenly in the pan. Add mushrooms to the pan, scattering them around the chicken and cover with remaining broth.
  7. Add the thyme, rosemary and bay leaf and cover skillet. Transfer to the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  8. When baking is complete, remove chicken from the skillet and set aside momentarily.
  9. Place the skillet with broth on the stovetop and bring to a boil. Bring the broth to a boil, and while whisking, add flour and reduce to a simmer. Cook the broth for 5-7 minutes, whisking often, or until a thick texture has been reached. Once the broth has reduced and thickened remove from the stove top.
  10. Return chicken to skillet to serve, or add chicken to a plate and top with warm mushroom sauce.
  11. Enjoy!
