Ingredients in Chicken Marsala

Smart Chicken – For this recipe, I used one pound of Smart Chicken’s chicken breasts. Be sure to butterfly them in half so you end up with four thin cutlets.

Breading – Combine AP flour, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl. Coat the cutlets in the flour mixture making sure they are covered. Any extra flour mixture can be added to the pan. It helps thicken the sauce.

Olive Oil / Butter – You will need both olive oil and butter for this recipe.

Seasonings – You can use simple salt and black pepper for this recipe.

Shallots – Be sure to peel and dice the shallots.

Garlic – Be sure to mince the garlic. Two to three cloves will do.

Mushrooms – For this recipe, I used baby bella mushrooms. They came in an eight-ounce package, pre-sliced. Be sure to wash and dry the mushrooms before adding them to the pan.

Mushroom Chicken Broth – For this recipe, I used Smart Chicken’s mushroom chicken bone broth. It works perfectly with the mushrooms and marsala wine sauce.

Marsala Wine – Be sure to use dry marsala cooking wine.

Thyme – You can add two to three sprigs of fresh thyme to the sauce.

How to Make Chicken Marsala

Butterfly your chicken breasts so you have four cutlets.

Grab a plate and combine the AP flour, salt, and black pepper.

Dust the cutlets in the flour mixture making sure they’re well coated.

Heat a pan over medium heat and add two tablespoons olive oil plus one tablespoon butter.

Add the breaded chicken cutlets to the pan and cook them for 4-5 minutes per side.

Remove the chicken from the pan.

In the same pan, add the remaining butter and mushrooms. Sauté the mushrooms for a few minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Next, add the diced shallots, minced garlic, and fresh thyme. Stir well.

Once the mushrooms begin to brown and the shallots are translucent, deglaze the pan with the marsala wine.

Next, add the mushroom chicken bone broth. Be sure to scrape up any crispy pieces from the bottom of the pan.

Nestle the chicken back into the sauce.  Make sure it is cooked through. You’ll want the internal temp to reach 165 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure doneness.

Remove the thyme. Serve hot.
