You will not believe how quick and easy it is to prepare this delicious chicken Marsala recipe. This recipe contains boneless chicken breasts, some basil, and Marsala fortified wine. This is an elegant dish for a family meal or special occasion. Dry Marsala wine is preferred but feel free to use a sweet Marsala wine.

4 (5-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 to 8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup Marsala wine
Gather the ingredients.
Place a chicken breast half between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and pound gently to an even thickness of about 1/4 inch.
Alternatively, if the chicken breasts are quite large, slice each horizontally to make 2 cutlets. Repeat with the remaining chicken breasts.
Combine flour, salt, pepper, and basil in a wide, shallow bowl; mix well.
Heat the oil and butter in a heavy, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
Dredge the chicken pieces in the seasoned flour mixture.
Arrange the chicken in the skillet and cook until lightly browned on the first side—about 2 to 3 minutes.
Turn chicken and add mushrooms around the chicken pieces.
Cook about 2 minutes longer, until lightly browned; stir the mushrooms.
Add the Marsala wine to pan.
Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer 10 minutes.
Serve this easy chicken with hot cooked pasta, mashed potatoes, or rice.
- If the chicken breast halves are large enough to make 2 cutlets, you might need only 2 or 3 for 4 servings.
