Chicken Marsala

This is one of my favorite recipes, though using chicken as the protein is new to me, as I usually use pork.

Chicken Marsala

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1 pound chicken breasts, pounded thin
  • 3 Tbsp Earth Balance
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tsp minced gralic
  • 1 cup Marsala wine

Instructions

  1. Mix flour, salt, garlic salt, garlic powder, and oregano in a medium bowl.
  2. Add chicken breasts and toss until coated.
  3. Heat Earth Balance and olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  4. Place chicken breasts in skillet, and cook until brown on both sides.
  5. Add the mushrooms and garlic and cook briefly.
  6. Stir in the wine, making sure to scrape all the good bits off the bottom of the pan. Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes.

I like to top this with a bit of fresh herbs – parsley, thyme – whatever you prefer. I found that I had less sauce than I’d like at the end of cooking, so next time I will likely up the Earth Balance and olive oil, or adjust the cooking temp. I personally like this better with pork as I think it has more flavor and better texture, but this worked well, too.
