Ingredients:  
1/2 c. flour
1 Tbsp. Essence (recipe follows)
2 (6-8 oz) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in halves and pounded thin
1 Tbsp. olive oil
4 Tbsp. butter
3 c. sliced mushrooms
3/4 c. Marsala
1 c. chicken stock
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Chopped chives, for garnish

Essence (Emeril's Creole Seasoning)
2 1/2 Tbsp. paprika
2 Tbsp. salt
2 Tbsp. garlic powder
1 Tbsp. black pepper
1 Tbsp. onion powder
1 Tbsp. cayenne pepper
1 Tbsp. dried leaf oregano
1 Tbsp. dried thyme

Directions:
Directions:
In a shallow bowl or plate combine the flour and Essence and stir to combine thoroughly. Quickly dredge the chicken breast halves in the seasoned flour mixture, shaking to remove any excess flour.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until very hot but not smoking. Add 1 Tbsp. of the butter and cook the chicken breasts until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and set aside. Add 1 Tbsp. of the remaining butter to the pan and add the mushrooms. Cook, stirring frequently, until mushrooms are golden brown around the edges and have given off their liquid. Add the Marsala and bring to a boil, scraping to remove any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. When the wine has reduced by half,, add the chicken stock and cook for 3 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened slightly. Lower the heat to medium and return the chicken breasts to the pan and continue to cook until they are cooked through and the sauce has thickened, about 5 to 6 minutes. Swirl in the remaining 2 Tbsp. butter, add salt and pepper, to taste. Garnish with chopped chives and serve immediately.
