2. Chicken Recipes

Chicken Marsala


For the Chicken:

  • chicken breasts, boneless and skinless (about 850 gram.)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

For the Creamy Mushroom Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons butter, unsalted
  • 2 cups brown mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • ½ cup dry marsala wine
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • ⅓ cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped (for garnish)


  1. Slice each chicken breast carefully in half lengthwise (horizontally) and place one at a time, between 2 sheets of cling wrap or in a zip lock freezer bag. Carefully flatten the chicken breasts with a rolling pin until they are approximately ¼ inch thick. Don’t pound the breasts too hard as it could tear apart the breast. Ideally, you want flattened chicken breasts to a uniform thickness.
  2. Season both sides of each chicken breast with salt and pepper. Prepare a shallow plate with flour and dip the chicken into the flour, evenly coating on both sides. Set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high for 2 minutes until the hot oil sizzles. Sear the chicken for about 5 minutes per side until golden brown and fully cooked through. The internal temperature for the chicken should reach 165F. Transfer the chicken to a plate.
  4. In the same skillet, melt butter and sauté mushrooms until golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes. Add a little more olive oil, if needed.
  5. Stir in flour, Italian seasoning and garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  6. Pour in marsala wine, chicken broth, and cream and whisk well until the sauce is smooth and uniform. Reduce heat to medium and bring the sauce to a simmer until thickened to a desired consistency, about 4-5 minutes.
  7. Return the chicken to skillet and toss well to coat, allowing the chicken to cook and soak in the sauce for 1-2 minutes.
  8. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately with pasta, rice, or over mashed potatoes.
