Instead of preparing dish in 2 batches, you will get better results if you work 2 pans simultaneously; divide ingredients between pans. Lay chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap and pound to 1/4 inchthickness. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Dredge chicken in flour, patting off excess. In 2 large skillets over medium heat, warm 2 tbs. butter in each pan until melted. Add chicken halves and cook until nicely browned on both sides, about 1 min per side. Remove chicken and set aside until needed. Reduce heat to low, divide shallots and pear between pans, sauteing for 2 mins. Then add mushrooms to each and saute for 2 mins. Divide bourbon, Chardonnay and chicken broth between pans, increase heat to high and let sauce boil until slightly thickened and reduced by half, about 5 mins. Return chicken to sauce, reduce heat to low and simmer until chicken is firm and cooked through, about 3 mins. Season with remaining salt and pepper to taste. Place each chicken breast on a plate and divide sauce among them. Sprinkle with walnuts and serve immediately.
