Chicken marsala is usually high in fat and calories, but in this version, the flavor really comes from deglazing the skillet with the broth and wine, so even though the extra oil is eliminated, the taste isn’t lost.
- 6 (4 ounce) boneless skinless chicken breast halves
- 1 cup fat-free Italian salad dressing
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon italian seasoning
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon paprika
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1⁄2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 1⁄2 cup marsala wine (or 3 tablespoons unsweetened apple juice plus 5 tablespoons additional reduced-sodium chicken broth)
- 1 lb sliced fresh mushrooms
- 1⁄2 cup minced fresh parsley
- Flatten chicken to 1/2-in. thickness. Place in a large resealable plastic bag; add salad dressing. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
- Drain and discard marinade. Combine the flour, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, paprika and pepper; sprinkle over both sides of chicken. In a large nonstick skillet coated with nonstick cooking spray, cook chicken in 1 tablespoon oil and butter for 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Transfer to a 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray.
- Gradually add broth and wine or apple juice mixture to skillet, stirring to loosen browned bits. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Strain sauce; set aside. In the same skillet, cook mushrooms in remaining oil for 2 minutes; drain. Stir sauce into mushrooms; heat through. Pour over chicken; sprinkle with parsley. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.
This might be a better recipe with the apple juice, but I did not like it at all with the Marsala wine. It was way too strong. It tasted like chicken drowned in wine. Maybe I'll have better luck next time.
