I hope that you'll all enjoy this delicious dish as much as my family and I do. Every other week someone is asking for it. Enjoy!
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 10 ounces sliced mushrooms (baby portabellas are tasty!)
- 1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 5 tablespoons margarine or 5 tablespoons butter
- 1⁄2 cup marsala wine
- 1⁄2 cup chicken stock
- 1⁄8 teaspoon marjoram
- 1⁄8 teaspoon thyme
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground sage
- 1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- Wash and trim chicken breasts to prepare for the dish. Pound out each chicken breast between saran wrap to ¼ inch thickness. Slice chicken breast into strips or little chunks, whichever you prefer.
- In a bowl, mix together flour, salt, and pepper.
- Melt 3 tablespoons of your margarine in a large skillet over a medium-high heat. Coat chicken pieces with flour mixture and lightly brown in skillet. Turn after 2 minutes or so, ensuring both sides are lightly browned.
- Transfer the chicken to a shallow dish and it covers the dish tightly with plastic wrap so that no steam can escape. This will seal the moisture into the chicken.
- Add remaining margarine to the same skillet. When the margarine is melted, add garlic, thyme, marjoram, and sage. Add pre-washed sliced mushrooms to the skillet. Toss mushrooms so that they are coated evenly in the pan with the melted margarine and spice mixture. Cook until they are lightly browned, about 2-3 minutes.
- After the mushrooms are browned, return the chicken to the skillet. Add the marsala wine mixture. Bring to a light boil for 5-7 minutes to cook off some of the wine and ensure that your mushrooms and chicken soak some up. Yum!
- Add chopped parsley and chicken stock to the mixture. Bring to a light boil again. Then reduce to a medium–low heat to simmer the chicken until it is cooked through.
- Last but not least, I thicken my sauce a little at the end with cornstarch and water. Serve immediately. This dish is great over egg-noodles or my favorite, rice pilaf. Enjoy!
Impressive...One of those dishes that looks and tastes like alot of work went into it(but it really didn't). Classy enough to serve for a dinner party.
Instead of adding cornstarch and water mixture at end to thicken, I just added about a heaping tablespoon of corn starch to the chicken stock called for in the recipe and it thickened up nicely.
Wow...This is a very taste dish, easy to make, and the aroma was mouth watering. I used all fresh herbs and it was marvelous.
An amazing dish. I made this tonight for my family and they were all disappointed when it was gone. I took the author's suggestion and added about half a teaspoon of cornstarch to the dish, which really improved the consistency of the sauce. Served it over rice seasoned with garlic and herbs - the flavour was enough to taste delicious but not strong enough to overpower the main dish. I'd highly suggest trying this recipe for yourself!
