Grilled Chicken Marsala and Farfalle

Monica Keleher


I had planned on making a regular chicken marsala for dinner but we got 65 degree weather for the first time this spring so I had to open the grill and thought hmmmm...why not make the sauce as I would with a regular marsala and then add the grilled chicken! It was FANTASTIC! This turned out to be more of a deconstructed saltimbocca. LOVED IT!

I hope you love it as much as the boys and I did.

3Add a bit more butter and olive oil and add the mushrooms.Combine and mix until the mushrooms are getting a nice color. pinch of salt and pepper

4Add a bit of flour at at time to the pan. You want it to thicken the sauce but not to become a thick sauce so I just dusted the top of the mixture and stirred. Combine and cook for a few minutes and add the stock and wine
