Fred Meyer has been running a Taste of Italy promotion in stores with all kinds of special ingredients imported from Italy as well as buy one, get one free specials! Additionally, they have a number of delicious recipes posted on their Taste of Italy website.
While in a dinner funk the other day, I perused the site and stumbled across this Chicken Marsala recipe. I decided to recreate it and it.was.delicious! Of course, I had to share it with you too.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- ¾ cups
Start by heating your oven to 200°.
Sauté the shallots in 3 tablespoons of butter until golden, about a minute.
Warning: this next part will make your kitchen smell outrageously delicious. Be prepared! Add the mushrooms, 1 teaspoon of the sage, salt and pepper to the mushrooms. Cook for about 6-8 minutes until the liquid is absorbed and then set aside in a small bowl.
Next, it’s time to work on the chicken! Dredge the chicken breasts in flour, salt, and pepper. Pan fry in 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Turn over to cook each side. In my case, I needed to fry up two at a time. After the first two were cooked, I put them in my 200° oven to keep warm.
Once your chicken is done, deglaze the pan with 1/2 cup of the Marsala wine. This will pick up all the yummy bits off the bottom of the pan! Allow to cook for about 30 seconds.
Now, add the chicken stock, cream, and cooked mushrooms. Give it a good few minutes to thicken the sauce. Then hit it up with the lemon juice, remaining 2 tablespoons of wine, and 1/2 teaspoon sage.
Now the original recipe didn’t call for this, but I decided to whip up a batch of pasta to serve alongside this dish. I’m glad I did as the recipe yielded a lot of sauce and it was nice to have some noodles to go with that!
Now it’s time to serve it up! I started by putting a big scoop of pasta on my plate, topped with the chicken, and then spooned over plenty of the Marsala sauce on top! I served it with some sautéed broccoli and of course, a crusty baguette topped with butter. This dish was absolutely heavenly – I can’t rave about it enough.
Even better, all the ingredients were simple to find and inexpensive at my Fred Meyer store and the dish took me about 30 minutes to assemble from start to finish. If you’re looking for a flavorful meal to throw on the menu plan this week, make it this one!
