In shallow dish, combine flour, salt and pepper; lightly dredge each veal piece in flour. Reserve excess flour mixture.

In large skillet, melt one-quarter of butter and half of oil over medium-high heat. Brown veal, in batches, turning once until golden, adding more of the butter and oil between batches as necessary. Transfer veal to a plate; keep warm.

Reduce heat to medium; add remaining butter to skillet. Sauté mushrooms and thyme, stirring, for about 5 min or until mushrooms are browned. Pour in wine; cook, scraping bits stuck to pan, until almost evaporated. Whisk reserved flour mixture into cream and whisk into skillet with chicken broth, Dijon mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to boil over medium-high heat; boil, stirring, for 3 min or until thickened.

Reduce heat to low. Return veal to skillet; coat with sauce and reheat. Serve sprinkled with fresh parsley.
