Chicken Marsala | Olives-n-Okra

Chicken Marsala is one of those dishes that you can make in a pinch. It only takes a few minutes to make, and the combination of Marsala, chicken broth, and mushrooms makes it mighty tasty. We usually serve it with a side of pasta, but rice will work too.

Total time: 
Yield: 4 servings
  • 2 boneless chicken breasts, cut in half
  • ½ cup of flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • ¾ cup Marsala wine
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • Salt and pepper as needed
  1. Cut chicken breast in half to make four pieces. If pieces are thick, flatten with a meat mallet. In a plate or bowl, combine the flour, salt, black pepper, oregano, and garlic powder. Lightly coat the chicken pieces with the flour mixture.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add 1 tablespoon butter. Cook the chicken breasts for 3 minutes on each side. Remove from pan and set aside.
  3. Add 2 tablespoons of the butter to the pan. Cook the mushrooms until liquid is gone and mushrooms start to turn brown (about 6-8 minutes). Add the Marsala wine and bring to a boil. When the wine reduces to half, add the chicken broth and cook for 3-4 more minutes or until sauce has thickened slightly. Lower heat to medium and add the chicken breasts. Cook for another 6-7 minutes. Add the remaining butter. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve with pasta.
