Stir in rice and salt and return to a boil over medium-high heat.

Reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender and has absorbed all the liquid, about 16-18 minutes. 

Remove from heat and let steam, covered, for 10 minutes.

Cut chicken breasts in half lengthwise to make four thinner cutlets. Coat them in flour.

In a large skillet, heat olive oil and butter over medium-high heat. Once pan is hot, add the chicken. Cook it until golden on the outside, about 3 minutes per side. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.

In the same pan, melt butter. Add mushrooms and oregano. Once mushrooms start to release water, about 3 minutes, add garlic, Continue cooking the mushrooms until all the water is cooked off, about 2 more minutes. Remove mushrooms from pan and set aside. 

In the same pan, add chicken broth, lemon juice, and Dijon mustard. Stir until mustard dissolves, and let it reduce for 3-4 minutes. 

Add cream, chicken and mushrooms to the pan. Let chicken cook until it reaches an internal temperature of 75°C / 165°F, and the sauce has thickened. Season with salt and black pepper. 

Using a fork, fluff the rice. Serve with chicken.
