4 Cups of Mushrooms

Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts

Don't feel like going out to Carraba's or the Olive Garden tonight for their tasty Chicken Marsala? Just make it yourself at home.

Gather together some flour, skinless boneless chicken breasts, butter (or margarine), mushrooms, Marsala cooking wine, onions or shallots, olive oil, chicken stock or broth, salt and black pepper.

First combine a 1/2 cup of flour, a pinch of salt and  some black pepper into a bowl or casserole dish. Coat the chicken breasts with this seasoned mixture.

Next add a few splashes of olive oil and a pat of butter into a large skillet and turn on the burner to medium-high heat. Brown each chicken breast for 3-4 minutes on each side and then set them aside.

Chop up some mushrooms and an onion and add them into the skillet with another tablespoon of butter or margarine.

Frequent Stirring
Cook the mixture until the onions are translucent and the mushrooms start turning golden brown. Then add anywhere from 1/2 to a full cup of Marsala wine, depending on your preference for a strong or weak sauce, and bring it to a boil. Keep stirring frequently until the wine has reduced down and then add about 3/4 to 1 cup of chicken stock (or broth made from a bouillon cube). By now that unmistakable aroma of Chicken Marsala should be filling your kitchen.

Bring To A Boil
Now place the chicken breasts back into the skillet and cook for about 5-7 minutes or until they are done to your satisfaction. The sauce should be thickening up nicely at this point so go ahead and add some more of the butter. Feel free to sprinkle in some of the spices that, depending on your personal taste, go well with this dish including oregano, garlic powder, basil, paprika, crushed red pepper, or thyme.

Buitoni Linguine Fresh Pasta
For this dish we chose fresh Buitoni brand Linguine pasta and prepared it with just a tiny bit of olive oil and butter so as to not detract from the Marsala sauce. Finally we sprinkled on some freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, Pecorino Romano and Asiago d' Allevo cheeses that were left over from yesterday's Creamy Three Cheese Italian Risotto Recipe. Enjoy!
Almost Ready!
