ingredients

directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°. In a large skillet, heat the butter over medium-high heat until just melted. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the flour on top and stir in for 1 minute. Stir in the marsala and cream and simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Stir in 2 cups water, the parsley, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
  • In a greased 9-inch-by-13-inch casserole, spread the rice in an even layer; top with the chicken. Pour the mushroom gravy on top. Cover snugly with foil and bake until bubbly, about 35 minutes. Discard the foil, sprinkle the parmesan on top and bake for 5 minutes more.

    Made some adjustments to lower the carb count. Went with the 1 cup Marsala and 1 Cup heavy cream along with diced Onions and Minced garlic that others have suggested. I used a combo of butter and bacon grease to saute the vegetables. I replaced the flour with a teaspoon of Xanthum Gum and did not add the water. I used an 8 oz package of microwave riced cauliflower instead of rice. layered with 18 oz. of shredded left over chicken breast. I cooked it in a 9x9 glass cake pan in the oven covered with foil for 35 minutes and doubled the parm to 1/4 cup. We had sweet marsala but it turned out really good.

    This was a solid, filling weeknight meal. We are definitely planning to make it again. I'd call it very good, not excellent hence the four stars.<br/><br/>I did make a few modifications based on reviews I had seen here or there:<br/><br/>- I cooked the chicken in some olive oil in the same skillet and set it aside before adding the butter and mushrooms<br/>- Added 1/2 an onion and a few cloves of garlic to the mushrooms<br/>- Used chicken broth instead of water<br/>- Used 1 cup each of wine and cream<br/>- I used milk instead of cream to save some cals and it didn't seem to make a difference<br/>- Added a few rosemary twigs from the garden and took them out before adding parmesan<br/>- Be very liberal with your parmesan use<br/><br/>Note: I was confused by the directions as to whether you needed to cook the rice in advance. You do not. The water/broth flows to the bottom and the rice is cooked in that.<br/><br/>I love recipes that use rotisserie chicken because I keep the bones to make stock.<br/><br/>Will definitely be put in the dinner rotation!

    This is excellent. I made it easy on my self and cooked the rice first. (You may not think that is the easy way, but I wanted to make sure the rice cooked properly.) I then made the chicken and mushrooms (onion also) and sauce with one can of broth and the marsala and cream. Poured it over the top, sprinkled parm cheese. Will definitely make again.

    We love Chicken Marsala so I knew this would be a winning dish for us. I used dry Marsala, because I read somewhere that the dry makes the sauce less sweet than the sweet Marsala. The blend of flavors was just perfect for us and we dug in and pigged out! A do again recipe for us!
