Marsala is one of my all-time favorite sauces and is so easy to make! This is a restaurant-quality meal you can throw together in no time at all on a busy weeknight. Braised chicken marsala is fabulous served with some whole-wheat noodles and a green veggie side such as zucchini or asparagus. This is a perfect example of how tasty, real food does not have to be complicated. :)
Braised Chicken Marsala
- Mix together the Italian seasoning, salt and pepper in a small bowl and sprinkle on top of the chicken until evenly coated. It helps to push on it with your fingers to make sure it really sticks. Sprinkle the flour on top of the seasonings, turn the chicken over, and coat all sides.
- In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat melt 4 tablespoons of the butter. Add the chicken and mushrooms to the pan and sear the chicken until golden brown on both sides, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Remove chicken and mushrooms from pan and set aside.
- Turn the heat up to high, pour the Marsala wine into the sauté pan, and boil until reduced by half, about 3 to 4 minutes. Turn the heat down to low, put the chicken and mushrooms back in the pan, cover with a tight-fitting lid and simmer until chicken is cooked all the way through, about 8 to 10 minutes.
