Recipe by Irish Rose

My favorite meal is Chicken Marsala from the Macaroni Grill. This is a copycat recipe that I received from recipelink and it is truly wonderful and surprisingly easy too.

We loved this recipe! I have never been to a Macaroni Grill so I can't compare it but I have had chicken marsala before and this version was delish. I made as posted except to leave out the shallot (didn't have one on hand) and I doubled the sauce. I served over rice. There wasn't a bit left. Thanks for posting a keeper!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place chicken pieces between waxed paper and flatten. Dust each piece with salt, pepper and flour. Shake off surplus.
  2. Melt 3 tablespoons butter and the oil in skillet and fry chicken in batches on medium heat for about 5 minutes each side.
  3. Remove chicken from pan and arrange in a single layer in shallow ovenproof pan. Put in low oven (275-300 degrees) to stay warm.
  4. Add 2 tablespoons butter, garlic and shallot to skillet and saute (do not brown) for a few minutes until soft. Add mushrooms and saute about 5 minutes. Use slotted spoon to lift mushrooms out of skillet and arrange on top of chicken breasts. Sprinkle with cheese and put back in oven until you finish next step.
  5. Pour Marsala wine into skillet along with chicken broth and remaining 1 tablespoons butter and boil rapidly until reduced by half. Remove chicken from oven, plate it and pour wine mixture over the chicken breasts.
  6. I served the breasts along with a small portion of angel hair pasta on the plate.
