Want to make a dinner that’s so rich in flavor it’ll make your mouth water, but is also super quick and easy? This one’s for you! Chicken Marsala is one of my favorite dishes. It looks appealing, it smells great, and it tastes even better, yet it doesn’t require much prep, and the ingredients are mostly things you’ll probably already have lying around the kitchen. Ready to get cooking? Let’s go!
•WHAT YOU’LL NEED•
1 chicken breast divided into two sections
3 cups of flour
Salt & pepper to taste
2 cups of sliced mushrooms
1 cup of Marsala wine
2 1/2 tbsp. of lemon juice
3 cloves of chopped garlic
1 tbsp. of unsalted butter
1 tbsp. of parsley
2 tbsp. of olive oil
*Rice or pasta. See below.
•HOW TO MAKE IT•
*You can serve this over a bed of rice or pasta. We prefer pasta and use egg noodles, but it depends on your preference. Whichever you decide to go with, go ahead and get a pot of water boiling. Once you’re finished with steps 1 and 2 below, add your rice or noodles to the boiling water and cook accordingly. They should be ready to go by the time you’re finished with the remaining steps.
1.) Add olive oil to a skillet and heat on medium setting.
2.) Combine flour, salt, and pepper into a medium bowl, and mix.
3.) Dredge chicken breasts in flour mix, and shake off any excess mixture.
4.) Fry chicken in skillet with olive oil until cooked thoroughly (about 3 minutes on each side).
5.) Remove chicken from skillet and place to the side. Add mushrooms to the same skillet, and cook until soft.
6.) Add Marsala wine, lemon juice, garlic, butter, and parsley. Cook until you have a slightly thickened sauce.
7.) Place chicken and sauce on top of rice or noodles. Garnish with fresh parsley (if desired), and serve.
