Chicken Marsala

Fanciful name for a chicken dish that’s really simple to prepare and wonderful to eat. As with any meal, recipe variations abound for this dish – some use boneless chicken breasts, pounded thin, others cut them into chunks. For this version, I went in between and used store-bought boneless chicken tenders. These were sliced thinly enough not to need added preparation.

Besides the chicken, you may already have all the needed ingredients available, chicken marsala (2)except possibly the Marasala wine.

Hint: use the cheapest Marsala wine available (it cooks down anyway) or use Marsala cooking wine is a substitute.

Chicken Marsala
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 TBSP butter
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms (canned works too)
  • 1/2 cup Marsala wine (more if you prefer)
  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, garlic salt, pepper, and oregano. Dredge chicken in the mixture to lightly coat.chicken marsala (4)
  2. Heat olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry the chicken in the skillet for about 2 minutes, until lightly browned on one side. Turn chicken over and cook until also lightly browned. Add mushrooms and stir to cook evenly.chicken marsala (6)
  3. Pour Marsala wine over the chicken.
  4. Cover skillet and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear. chicken marsala (7)

Our dinner was delicious served with a side of wild rice and steamed fresh broccoli.chicken marsala (1)

Grenville is already asking when Chicken Marsala will be on The Frog & PenguINN dinner menu again.

That sounds and looks really good. I may have to try this recipe some time! Thank you for sharing it.

Ludwig Keck said...

Hmmm, good. I will have to try this recipe. So many recipes call for a small quantity of fresh spices - which I never have - this one uses what is in the pantry or frig. Great.
Anything left over?

Daisy said...

Beatrice, this looks and sounds very good and easy to do too. I may have to give this one a try. Thanks!

I was just looking at wines and forgot this one when I cook.I can almost smell it.

Elaine said...

Looks very good and a really easy meal to fix. We eat a lot of chicken breasts so this looks like a good recipe to keep on hand.

Sandra said...

looks good from here, and I know it was good since you cooked it.

Tammy@Simple Southern Happiness said...

My mouth is watering from the picture you posted so it has to be good for it to do that. YUM!!

Looks delicious have you ever tried it with another wine?

The chicken looks wonderful! It's been awhile since I've been by and I apologize. I just run behind much of the time. How are you two doing? Is your weather strange for this time of year? We have 80 degree temps here today and it's just sort of strange. We jumped from the fifties to the 80's in just a day. Really odd.
Love to you...

I have only made this one time and let me tell you, it was good, but yours looks so much more delicious! Thanks for sharing.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Mildred, it is very easy and so good too.

Elaine (Country Girl) & Mona you are very welcome. Hope you enjoy it!

Ludwig, it is frustrating not to have the needed spices when cooking, but then to buy unusual ones means we end up with so many in the pantry - some of which we hardly use. Sorry, we only had leftovers for a second night without sharing :-(

Daisy, enjoy!

Steve, the Marsala has a distinct fragrance when used in cooking. I just bought another bottle for repeats of this recipe.

Elaine, chicken is so versatile and one of our favorite mainstays too.

Thanks Sandra & Tammy and by the way, Tammy you postec recipes and photos have the same effect on me!

Carole, no I haven't substituted wines but if I was out of Marsala, then would try whatever we had available.

Mona (Wspersweetly) I know what you mean about time getting away - happens to all of us. Thanks for stopping by; we are doing fine. Our weather is strange as well, nearly 70 degrees a couple of days this week.

Nezzy, would rather lick my plate than the PC screen, bet your dinner was delicious too.

Kathleen, good yes, and if you give it another try let me know how it worked for you.
