How To Make ~ simple pleasures chicken marsala ~

  • 1
    Butterfly your chicken breasts - cut completely through. Place between plastic wrap or a plastic baggie and pound out with a meat mallet until 1/2 inch thick. Salt & pepper each side evenly. Start water for noodles if serving. Prepare as directed.

    In a large skillet, over medium high heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter into 2 tablespoons olive oil. Now add the chicken to the pan and cook about 5 minutes on each side, or until done and should have some coloring. Remove chicken and any dripping to a plate and keep warm.

    Add the water to the hot pan and swirl, add this to the chicken. Make sure pan is hot and add a little more oil and saute the mushrooms until tender, add 3/4 of the green onions and garlic, cook another minute. Stirring occasionally. ( I sauteed the mushrooms separately as daughter won't eat them. )

    Pour the Marsala into the pan and cook for 1 minute on high. Reduce the heat and add the remaining butter, stirring until melted.

    Return the chicken and drippings back to pan and simmer for 1 - 2 minutes. Forgot picture

    Plate chicken and pour sauce over top. Sprinkle with remaining onions. I served 2 pieces of chicken and sauce over noodles or it's also great over garlic mashed potatoes. Salt & pepper if desired. Delicious!
