    AWESOME recipe!!! Thanks for sharing, I used chicken breast tenders, and did not pound them, cause they cook SO QUICKLY. Delicious meal. I served steamed cauliflower and asparagus. - 5/13/09

  • Good recipe. I seared chicken on both sides and put aside. Then I cooked the mushrooms, added marsala and beef stock and cooked down to dark gravy. Put chicken under broiler with asparagus and mozzarella until bubbly and served with reduced stock/mushrooms...wow!!! - 7/23/10

  • what could be substituted for wine? I'm thinking chicken stock and maybe some grape juice to avoid the alcohol. - 5/21/09

    Reply from SDL3582 (7/20/09)
    When using wine while cooking within only a few minutes the alcohol cooks out of the wine. I live in Italy and they use wine here in most dishes but there is no alcohol left once ready to be served, just great flavor!
