Chicken Marsala

This juicy and tender chicken is baked instead of fried and it's delicious when covered in hearty and savory mushroom Marsala sauce.


  • 2 - 10 ounce packages of Crimini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup Marsala cooking wine
  • 1/4 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 4 chicken breasts, sliced in half lengthwise
  • 1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/8 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • garnish with parsley, cilantro or chives

Makes 6


  1. Preheat oven to 375'F.
  2. In a large skillet, add olive oil and mushrooms and saute over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  3. While mushrooms begin to cook, slice chicken breasts in half lengthwise and place in a resealable plastic bag. Pound with a meat mallet until each one is about 1/2 inch thick.
  4. Place flour in a flat dish and add a pinch of fresh ground black pepper, lightly dredge each chicken breast half in the flour coating both sides and place them on a baking sheet.
  5. Bake at 375'F for about 20 minutes, flipping once or twice during cooking, until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 160-165'F and is no longer pink.
  6. When you put the chicken in the oven, add the Marsala wine and chicken broth to your mushrooms, reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer. The Marsala should simmer for at least 15 minutes to allow the flavors to develop.
  7. Once your chicken is cooked through, remove it from the oven and nestle it down into your skillet full of mushrooms. Simmer the chicken and mushrooms together for another 5 minutes.
  8. Serve hot over rice or pasta with some fresh steamed veggies or salad on the side.
