1/3 cup chopped onion
3 thyme sprigs
1 celery stalk
4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup thinly sliced shallots
2 teaspoons minced garlic
8 ounces sliced cremini mushrooms
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup dry white wine
2 teaspoons all-purpose flour

Combine chicken broth, water, onion, thyme sprigs, and celery stalk in a saucepan. Add chicken; bring to a simmer. Simmer gently for 15 minutes or until chicken is done.

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil, shallots, and garlic; sauté 1 minute, stirring frequently. Add cremini mushrooms, kosher salt, and black pepper; sauté 3 minutes. Add wine; cook until liquid evaporates. Stir in flour; cook 1 minute. Stir in reserved cooking liquid; bring to a boil. Cook 1 minute. ­Remove from heat; stir in chicken and crème fraîche. Serve over toasted bread slices.
