Chicken Marsala

Authentic Marsala is finished with a small amount of the wine and does not necessarily have mushrooms. Enjoy this authentic Italian chicken recipe!


1 – Rinse the chicken and pat dry with paper towels. Place the breasts between layers of plastic wrap, and pound until thin. Beat the eggs in a bowl. Cut the butter into small pats. Clean and slice the mushrooms. Peel and mince the garlic.

2 – Dust the chicken with the flour. Dip in the eggs, and return to the flour. Shake off excess flour.

3 – Heat the oil to medium-high temperature in a large saute pan. Add the chicken, and brown on one side. Turn over, and add the mushrooms and garlic.

4 – Pour in the wine, and reduce to half the volume.

5 – Add the pats of cold butter, and stir into the sauce. Serve the chicken with the sauce.
