This week, Joe Mezz introduces us to an all time favorite, Chicken Marsala, page 83 of our book

DSC_0355

Serves 4 (I used almost 2 lbs of thin chicken breasts so the meal would certainly serve up to 6 people).

DSC_5976

  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour to coat chicken
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – pounded 1/4 inch thick
  • 4 TBS butter *I didn’t use any butter in either the chicken or salmon version. The dish turned out just as delicious.
  • 4 TBS olive oil
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup Marsala wine
  • 1/4 cup cooking sherry

In a shallow dish, mix the flour, salt, pepper, and oregano. Coat the pounded chicken pieces with the flour mix.

In a large preheated skillet, melt the butter and the oil over medium.   Place the chicken in a the pan, and cook until lightly browned on one side. Turn over the chicken and add the mushrooms. 

Pour in the wine and sherry.  Cover the skillet, allow to simmer 10 minutes, turn once, make sure chicken is no longer pink inside and the juice runs clear.

Ted loved this dish.  It was so easy.  I made the chicken AND the salmon below within 40 minutes. It’s that easy and really very good.

Since I don’t eat chicken, I enjoyed an Apple Crumbles version called “Salmon Marsala”.  This just might be my new favorite way to enjoy Salmon.   Thanks Joe!

The salmon had a wonderful sweet, caramelized top.  Cook it the exact same way as you would the chicken if your salmon fillets are nice and thick.

The flavor of marsala wine and the sherry didn’t come through as a liquor flavor at all. They simply added sweetness to the protein. Delicious.

Make sure you try this recipe. It’s just too easy and too good to ignore.

                Ohh, you salmon marsala looks so very good! I just started eating chicken again, so I could easily have enjoyed this both ways. But I must say that your salmon looks especially appetizing. Thank you for sharing…I love ordering this when I go out to dinner, but I’ve never tried making it at home!
