Salt and pepper to taste

2 tbs light olive oil (not first press virgin)
¼ cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
In large skillet, melt butter with olive oil, add garlic and shallots and ½ the wine, and sauté till translucent – about 4 minutes.. Season pounded chicken breasts with salt and pepper, and sauté in butter/oil mixture till browned – about 5 minutes per side.
Add ½ the wine, and simmer, stirring browned bits off of bottom of pan. Add mushrooms, roasted pepper and artichoke hearts, and simmer for about 8 – 10 minutes.
