DIRECTIONS

  • Start by making marsala sauce. Heat butter in saute pan; add mushrooms, garlic and shallot. Saute 5 minutes until mushrooms are done.
  • Stir marsala into mushrooms and stir up any browned bits; simmer and reduce marsala by half.
  • Separately, whisk cornstarch into a bit of the chicken broth until smooth; add remaining chicken broth. Pour this into reduced marsala and bring to boil; simmer 2-3 minutes to thicken sauce. Turn off heat and cover pan.
  • Meanwhile, preheat grill to high heat.
  • Toss raw chicken tenders with olive oil, salt and pepper (Note: if you are using regular size chicken breasts, cut them in half to make two long portions). Place chicken on hot grill and cook only 1-2 minutes each side.
  • Place grilled chicken into marsala-mushroom sauce. Allow to simmer several minutes until chicken is cooked through and sauce is thickened.
  • **If you are making this meal for company, feel free to make ahead to this point. Then right before serving time, reheat it while you cook the pasta.
  • Serve chicken over cooked pasta; garnish with parsley.
