Chicken Marsala


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, for dredging
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup Marsala wine
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth

    • Dredge the chicken in flour, shaking off any excess.
  2. Cook the Chicken:

    • Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
    • Add the chicken breasts and cook until golden brown on each side, about 4-5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  3. Make the Sauce:

    • In the same skillet, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
    • Add the mushrooms and garlic, cooking until the mushrooms are browned, about 5 minutes.

    • Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.
  4. Combine and Finish:

    • Return the chicken to the skillet, spooning some of the sauce over the top.
    • Simmer until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened slightly, about 10 minutes.
    • Stir in the butter until melted and smooth.
    • Garnish with chopped parsley.

  • 1 pound fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
