Chicken Marsala-quick and easy.

Sundays we eat just two meals, breakfast and then a midday dinner. This helps my budget and sanity. Generally, we get up and are out the door to the grocery store by 6:45 AM! I always wake up between five and six AM even when I don’t want to so I put that time to good use! Today there happened to be a sale on boneless chicken breast for 1.69 a pound and the packages of mushrooms were only $1.99 package. I knew I had rice and even the marsala cooking wine at home. I had originally thought a baked chicken would be what I made but the prices on them were pretty high so I changed my mind.

First I started with getting the onions and mushrooms cut.

Before I got started on cooking the marsala, I got the rice going, fortunately, this dish doesn’t take long to make.

We place the chicken breasts between plastic and pound them out to about 1/4 or so thick. This can help you get a few servings out of one breast if you are trying to feed a crowd.


First I put some salt and pepper on the chicken breasts.  I put some flour in a resealable bag and coated each breast in flour and then put them in the pan and cooked them until they were golden brown and then removed them

You will have little bits of stuff in the bottom of your pan and that is fine.  We now add the onions, garlic, and mushrooms and get those cooked down.


Once those are cooked a bit we add the wine and the chicken broth and bring it to a simmer.  Now we put the chicken back in the pot to simmer and finish cooking.


At this point, I mix the chicken broth and the flour to thicken this mixture and then after that simmers for a minute or two I add in the cup of cream.


Turn your heat to low.  You just want the cream to get hot and then serve, do not let this boil.

We had ours with rice pilaf and broccoli and the whole thing took about forty minutes from beginning to end including the preparation.  This would be a great mid-week “quick” meal.  To make it easier prep the onions, mushrooms and even chicken ahead of time.
