1 tablespoon butter
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1½ pounds button mushrooms, sliced ½ inch thick
1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 cup white wine
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Melt the butter over medium heat in a heavy skillet. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until translucent, about 4 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook until they release their liquid and begin to brown, about 10 minutes. Add the thyme, zest, and wine; simmer until the liquid is reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Add the broth, bring to a boil, and simmer 5 minutes. Stir in the cream, salt, and pepper. Simmer until the sauce lightly coats the back of a spoon.
