Chicken Marsala

Servings 4 people


  • 4 6-oz. boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 4 ounces white button mushrooms sliced
  • 1/2 cup dry Marsala wine or use low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons minced Italian parsley


  • Pound chicken pieces between two pieces of plastic wrap.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until juices run clear. Remove from skillet and cover with foil wrap to keep warm.
  • To the same skillet, add onion and mushrooms. Cook until soft, about 5 minutes.
  • Add wine (or broth) to the pan and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. (At this point, judge the amount of liquid you want for the sauce. If you want more, add a little chicken broth.)
