  1. Season the chicken tenders with salt and pepper, then dredge in the flour, shaking off excess. Heat a 12- to 14-inch nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and brown each side of the chicken until golden brown, 2 minutes a side (you want to actually undercook the chicken a bit; it will finish in the pan later). Transfer the chicken to a plate.
  2. To the same pan, add the cremini mushrooms, butter, dried porcini and shallots and cook until deeply caramelized, about 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the gelatin and 1/4 cup of the broth together and let sit to bloom.
  4. Add the garlic to the pan and cook for another 20 seconds. Deglaze with the Marsala, scraping up any bits. Whisk in the remaining broth and the gelatin mixture and bring to a simmer. Simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Nestle the browned chicken in the pan and gently simmer for 3 minutes. Top with the fresh parsley and lemon juice. Serve with warm crusty Italian bread.
