Instructions
  1. Heat a large heavy skillet over medium heat and add butter and oil. Once oil is hot, add the chicken in a single layer. Season with salt, black pepper, chives, minced garlic, and lemon thyme and sauté about 4 min on each side or until just cooked through.
  2. Remove chicken to a plate and set aside.
  3. Add thickly sliced mushrooms and season with salt. Add chicken broth. Let mushrooms sizzle about 5 min, stirring occasionally until they are golden brown.
  4. Add heavy cream, nutmeg, and more black pepper.
  5. Return chicken to the pan. Bring to a light boil and continue to cook 2 min until sauce is slightly thickened then remove from heat. The sauce will thicken more as it cools. Season with more chives and lemon thyme.
