    Butterfly the chicken breasts, place them in a plastic bag and pound them to an even thin layer.
    Melt the butter and then stir in the blackening seasoning.
    Pour the blackened butter mix into the bag of chicken and mix around until the chicken is fully covered.
    Blacken the chicken breasts on one side about 5 minutes or until a nice blackened crust has formed, then flip and cook to an internal temperature of 165 °F.

    Whisk the cornstarch and chicken broth until combined. Add it to the pot along with Chicken, Chardonnay and Marsala. Bring to a boil.
