Chicken Marsala

Submitted by: SPIKESCOPILOT

Introduction

Rich and creamy, but easy on the calories Rich and creamy, but easy on the calories
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1/2 cup whole wheat flour
    1 tablespoon Essence of Emeril seasoning
    4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    4 tablespoons butter
    3 cups sliced mushrooms (assorted: cremini, oyster, shiitake, etc)
    1 cup Marsala wine
    1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
    salt and pepper to taste

Directions

In a shallow bowl or plate, combine flour and seasoning. Dredge the chicken in the seasoned flour mixture, shake to remove any excess flour, and place on a rack to dry.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until very hot, but not smoking. Add 1 tablespoon of the buter and cook the chicken breasts just until browned (about 3 minutes each side). Transfer to a plate and set aside.

Add 1 tablespoon of the butter and the mushrooms to the pan. Cook, stirring frequently, until mushrooms are golden brown around the edges and have given off their liquid. Add the Marsala wine and bring to a boil, scraping the pan to loosen the browned bits.

When the wine has reduced by half, add the chicken broth and cook for 3 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened slightly. Lower the heat to medium and return the chicken to the pan. Continue to cook until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened, about 5 to 6 minutes. Swirl in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Add salt and pepper to taste.

    tried this. Had to make my own variations of the marsala wine and chicken broth because I didn't have it. It was very good and quick. My husband loved it. - 2/10/09

    WOW! I was scared to make this b/c I had to make the sauce (I'm not the best cook!). But, I had no problems at all. With the first bite I was overwhelmed by how amazingly good it was. My finicky husband even loved it (sans mushrooms). This is going into my regular rotation :) - 1/22/09

    The recipe was very good. We used a little bit more butter, olive, oil and mushrooms. It was very tasty, but we had to add salt. We are both salt fanatics, though. My bf really enjoyed it and I served it w/ garlic red mashed potatoes. Yum! Thanks for sharing the recipe. - 1/17/09

    Very easy to make. Family thought it was very good. I had to add some corn starch to get the sauce to thicken enough. We will definitely make this again. - 8/16/08

    WOW! This was so good and so EASY. I didn't change a thing. I was worried that it wouldn't have enough garlic/onion flavor but the emeril's season was the perfect flavor for this dish. I will DEFINITELY be making this one again. The sauce didn't really thicken but that was okay. THANKS! - 7/31/08

    It was very simple and quick to make. The only item that might not normally be in your pantry is the Marsala. I happened to have some on hand because I had made Tiramisu for Easter. - 4/10/08

  • This is one of my top five recipes lately. It's easy to make and tastes good. I don't add the last two table spoons of butter and I think it tastes great. I didn't like how oily it was from using the full amount of butter. - 6/30/13

  • I made it and left out the last two table spoons of butter and could not tell it was missing. Added green onions and a bit of garlic to the mushrooms for a bit more flavor. Very quick and tasty. - 11/10/10

  • Cooked this tonight and it was yummmmm! Very simple to make, except part of the flour on my chicken came off and made my sauce gunky... .didn't affect the flavor though. I think the best part was the mushrooms which soaked up all the juice nicely. My husband was very impressed. =) - 7/23/10

  • An extremely delicious recipie. I adjusted the spice from Essence of Emiril to oregano, garlic, thyme leaves, salt, and pepper. However, even my picky teenage girls have asked for this a second time this month. - 10/12/09

  • I love Marsala Chix. I cook the chix and mushrooms with lo-fat chix broth and marsala wine. Believe it or not......it is delicious without the flour and butter. - 4/30/09
