 Here that recipe I promised today!

 Chicken, Peppers with Portabello Mushrooms over Penne
3/4 cup butter, divided
 2 tablespoons olive oil
 4 portobello mushroom caps
 sliced
cherry or grape tomatoes
 6 cloves garlic minced
2 1/2 tablespoons of flour
1/4 cup seasoned flour 1/4 teaspoon each cayenne pepper, black pepper, garlic powder, basil,  salt, pepper
1 (14.5 ounce) can beef broth
 1/2 cup dry Marsala wine
 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt and ground black pepper , oregano, basil
 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded to 1/2 inch thickness

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Melt 1/2 cup butter and heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the mushroom slices in the skillet until tender. Remove from heat, cover to keep warm, and set aside.

Melt the remaining butter and heat the remaining oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook and stir the garlic until tender, then gradually whisk in the flour. Increase heat to high, and pour in the beef broth and Marsala wine. Season with kosher salt and pepper, and whisk in the browning sauce. Bring to a boil, and reduce heat to low. Mix in the mushrooms, reserving remaining butter and oil in the skillet. Cover saucepan, remove from heat, and set aside.
Dip chicken in the seasoned flour. Over medium heat, reheat the remaining butter and oil in the skillet used to cook the mushrooms. Cook the chicken 2 minutes per side, until browned. Arrange the chicken in the bottom of an oil sprayed 13x9 inch baking dish, add 1 cup of cherry or grape tomatoes, cover with the sauce and mushroom mixture.

Cover baking dish with foil, and bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until chicken juices run clear.
Cook pasta of choice or rice and serve this mixture on top.
