  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts thinly sliced (see NOTES for bone-in breast)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbs olive oil


  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme or 1/4 tsp dried thyme leaves
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 4 tbs butter Finlandia™ Imported Butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Add the oil and the chicken; brown on both sides
  • In the same pan, over medium heat, add the wine and scrape up all the browned bits from the bottom off the pan. Let the wine reduce until there's only about 2 or so tablespoons left in the pan.
  • Add the chicken stock, garlic and thyme. Reduce this liquid 50%. This will take about 5-8 minutes.
  • For the sauce: whisk in 2 tbs cream. Add 1 tbs of butter and whisk until the butter is completely melted. Repeat until all the butter and cream are used.
  • Place the chicken back in the pan to heat through.


For bone-in breasts, brown as in recipe then bake in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes or until chicken juices run clear (165 degrees)
