A MUST HAVE for anyone that loves Italian food. This is a extremely easy recipe and it is great for dinner parties or a romantic dinner with your Honey. Try it and let me know what you think! I buy pre-sliced mushrooms and pre-made broth and it really cuts down the time you spend preping.
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 4 -5 tablespoons flour
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 8 -10 ounces sliced mushrooms
- 4 cloves garlic, sliced
- 2 cups marsala wine
- 3 cups chicken stock
- Place chicken breasts between two pieces of plastic wrap.
- With a meat tenderizing mallet, pound chicken breast until they are 1/4 inch thick.
- Dredge breasts in flour until all sides are coated.
- Heat olive oil in a large skillet or frying pan.
- Cook breasts until almost done, about 3-4 minutes on each side.
- Remove from pan being sure to keep warm.
- (I put them in a small cake pan and place in a 200 degree oven) Deglaze pan with Marsala wine, making sure to scrape bottom of pan to loosen all browned bits that may be stuck on.
- Add broth, mushrooms and garlic.
- Cook on medium/high for 10 minutes or until reduced by half.
- Add breasts back to pan and cook for another 10 minutes.
- (Sauce should have reduced more and thickened some) Serve over angel hair pasta.
This was very easy and tasty!! Very mild, not overpowering marsala taste. I only used 2 chicken breasts (they were huge) and used the full recipe for the sauce. It took close to 30 minutes for the sauce to reduce and never really thickned, so I added a thickening agent. Picky Hubby said it was a keeper!
I changed this up a little due to the fact I do not like having flour in sauces. I cooked the noodles I used only around half way, then finished boiling them in with the sauce mix. My husband and I both LOVED it that way. We found it did not need salt or pepper.
What a delicious, EASY recipe! We loved it, and had no problem getting the sauce to thicken, so I didn't add cornstarch or flour. The flavor was perfect, and using good canned broth and presliced mushrooms, as Kari suggested, really did make for a super-fast preparation. This is definitely fast enough for a weeknight, but tastes much more like a weekend meal - wonderful!
