Mix flour and salt and pepper, coating chicken pieces with it. Heat oil, on high, in large skillet. Brown chicken a few pieces at a time, drain each and pour off leftover fat.

On low heat butter adding the flour stirring constantly 2 - 3 minutes. Add a little broth, stirring, adding the rest when lump free. Add cream and wine/broth, returning chicken to the pan adding mushrooms.
