An easy chicken recipe for a divine chicken dish - Chicken Marsala! It's all made in one skillet and is ready in 40 minutes!
I know a lot of people aren't big fans of chicken, but I happen to love it as a protein. It's relatively easy to cook, healthy, and there are endless ways to cook it. It takes on pretty much any flavors you introduce to it and can be as simple as shredded for taco meat, fried for some down home comfort, or pan seared, like in this easy chicken marsala, for a classy dinner.
I think chicken marsala might intimidate people because it seems to be a complicated dish with lots of ingredients. In fact, it really isn't! A few simple ingredients, and one special ingredient - marsala wine - make this dish a stand out!
Salt and Pepper
That's it! Perhaps a longer ingredient list but, pretty basic stuff.
You start this dish by dredging chicken breasts in a combination of flour, garlic powder, salt, and pepper and browning the chicken on each side in butter.
Then remove the chicken from the pan, as it will finish cooking in a few steps. At this point, you'll add some more butter and olive oil, and saute the shallots and mushrooms. Then you'll add some garlic, cook another minute, and then the marsala wine and chicken broth.
At this point, you'll tuck the chicken into the sauce and let the chicken cook completely and the sauce thicken.
To finish it off, give it a splash of heavy cream for an extra bit of richness - it's totally worth it!
We served this with creamy angel hair pasta (recipe coming soon!), sauteed brussels sprouts, and garlic bread. We definitely licked our plates clean!
