Add 1/2 cup minced shallots or onion and 1 tablespoon butter or margarine. Stir over high heat until shallots are limp, about 2 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour to pan and stir until mixture is lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Add 1 cup dry sherry, 1 cup fat-skimmed chicken broth, and 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme.
