(makes 4 servings)

Ingredients: Nutrition Facts for Chicken Marsala
small bullet

4 skinless and boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 pound)

small bullet

4 teaspoons vegetable oil

small bullet

3 cups mushrooms, sliced
(i.e. button, Portobello, Crimini, or Porcini)

small bullet

1/4 teaspoon salt

small bullet

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

small bullet

3/4 cup dry Marsala wine

small bullet

1/2 cup green onions, sliced

small bullet

1/2 teaspoon dried sage, crushed

small bullet

1 tablespoon water

small bullet 1 teaspoon cornstarch


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 and 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.
4. 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.
5. In a small bowl, combine water and cornstarch and mix thoroughly with a fork then add to the Marsala sauce. Cook and stir until slightly thickened for about 1 minute. Serve chicken topped with Marsala sauce and mushrooms.
