Chicken Marsala

Wow! Easy-Peasy And On The Upper E-V-R Scale [Effort Versus Reward]

Meal fixing is much about scaling effort for the best results. I steered clear of Chicken Marsala thinking it was going to be too fussy for that wonderful flavor. Was I missing out! Enjoy this simple, powerful dish with some rice.

Serves 4-6

Turkey Breast Version

INGREDIENTS:

  • chicken- 2 lbs., skinless, boneless breast or thighs
  • flour- to dredge
  • butter- 6 TBS.
  • mushrooms- 6 oz., sliced
  • salt & pepper
  • marsala wine- dry, 1/2 cup
  • chicken stock- 1/2 cup or other stock flavor
  • corn starch- 2 tsp., mixed with 2 TBS. water or stock
  • rosemary- 2 TBS., fresh, minced, or other fresh green herb

INSTRUCTIONS:

Lake Lure
  1. Season the chicken aggressively with salt and pepper, then dredge in flour. Shake off excess flour.
  2. In a large skillet, melt the butter with medium-low heat. Add in the chicken in one layer and cook slowly, so as not to brown the butter. Sauté for 3 minutes or so and flip.
  3. Add the mushrooms, and rosemary, and continue to cook until chicken is done—about another 3-4 minutes.
  4. Remove just the chicken to a warm platter. Increase the heat and add the wine and stock then bring to a bare simmer.
  5. Pour in the corn starch slurry while stirring; until thickened—a minute or so.
  6. Add the chicken back in and cover with sauce to heat through.
