Chicken Marsala is a rich and savory dish that tastes great served with brown rice or whole wheat pasta.
Ingredients:
Skinless and boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 pound)
4 teaspoons vegetable oil
3 cups mushrooms, sliced
(i.e. button, Portobello, Crimini, or Porcini)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup dry Marsala wine
1/2 cup green onions, sliced
1/2 teaspoon dried sage, crushed
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon cornstarch
Directions:
1 Tenderize breast halves by placing each between two sheets of plastic wrap then pound lightly using the flat side of a meat mallet until about 1/8” in thickness.
2 Heat 2 teaspoons of the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook mushrooms for 4 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat and set aside.
3 Sprinkle the salt and pepper over the chicken. Using the same skillet, heat the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil over medium-high heat then add chicken.
4 Cook for about 2-3 minutes, turning once and no longer pink inside (cook longer if necessary to ensure doneness.) Remove cooked chicken and set aside.
5 In the same skillet, stir in the Marsala wine to the leftover pan drippings, scraping up any browned bits then bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium. Stir in cooked mushrooms, green onions and sage.
6 In a small bowl, combine water and cornstarch and mix thoroughly with a fork then add to the Marsala sauce.
7 Cook and stir until slightly thickened for about 1 minute. Serve chicken topped with Marsala sauce and mushrooms.
8 ENJOY!
