  1. Pound chicken into 1/4 in thick.
  2. Add butter to medium skillet and heat on medium-high. 
  3. Sear chicken to golden color. Set aside.
  4. Add 2 tbsp more butter to the pan.
  5. Add chopped mushrooms and onions. Cook until onions are translucent.  About 7 minutes.
  6. Add Tbsps flour to butter until thick paste forms.
  7. Add white wine and cream soup. Stir until well combined and thickens.
  8. Layer chicken with swiss cheese then mushrooms and onion sauce mixture.
  9. Serve warm.

This mixture is really good as skillet dinner.  I like a good wild rice blend or egg noodles with it.  For an extra easy treat, you can make it as a casserole with noodles or rice. For low-carb and keto, switch the rice to riced cauliflower. Just cook chicken thoroughly before adding other ingredients.   Save cheese till the last 5 minutes of baking. Add a green vegetable like spinach, asparagus, green beans, brussel sprout halves, or broccoli. We like broccoli, to have a great all in one dish dinner. If recognizing, or feeding a crowd use chicken thighs and cut into bite-size pieces.
