Chicken Marsala

Serves 2 hungry boyfriends in 20 minutes


  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts pounded thin
  • 8 ounces wild mushrooms, sliced and stems removed
  • 1 cup basil, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Marsala wine
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup of flour
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
1.  In a shallow dish mix together flour, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper.  Dredge the chicken in the seasoned flour mixture, shaking off the excess flour.

2.  Heat oil and 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium high heat.  Add the chicken and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side.  Transfer to a plate and set aside.  Add the mushrooms and basil to the pan.  Saute until the mushrooms start to release their juices, about 3 minutes. Add the Marsala and bring to a boil scraping up the brown bits from the bottom of the pan.  When the wine is reduced by half add the chicken stock and allow to boil for about 3 minutes.  Lower heat to medium and add the cream and butter, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper.  Allow to cook for 2 minutes or until the sauce thickens.  Add the chicken to the pan and toss in the sauce.  

3.  Serve your boyfriend.  Serve the chicken with a green salad lightly dressed.  Place chicken on the plate and spoon over the sauce with some savory mushrooms.  Dinner is served!
