Marsala Chicken

I love when I find a new recipe and then realize
 that I have all the ingredients. That's what
happened this week when I walked into Publix. 
 I picked up their weekly recipe card and read the
 list of ingredients. I already had the chicken 
thawing at home. I also had the rest of the 
ingredients too, right down to the marsala 
wine and balsamic glaze. Yes!
I originally bought the balsamic glaze to make a
caprese appetizer and am happy to find another
 use for this ingredient.

Larry sliced the onion and the chicken while 
I got the other ingredients ready and we had
a delicious dinner on the patio in less than
 30 minutes. Plus leftovers for another lunch
 or dinner later in the week.
  I used a little more than 1 lb. of chicken. 
Dredge the cutlets in seasoned flour and
 saute in olive oil and butter until golden.
Remove the chicken from the pan.
 Add the remaining oil and butter and saute 
the onions and mushrooms until tender.
 Add the broth, wine, and glaze.
 Return the chicken to the pan and cook until 
done and the sauce thickens, about 2-3 minutes.
Sprinkle with chopped parsley. 
Serve with pasta. I made the tomato spinach 
pasta. Spoon the extra sauce over the chicken. 


Marsala Chicken
2 boneless chicken breasts, about 1 lb
¼ C flour
1 t kosher salt, divided
½ t pepper
3 T olive oil divided
2 T butter, divided
1 C sliced onions
8 oz sliced baby portabellas
½ C marsala wine
½ C chicken stock (from a box)
2 T balsamic glaze
1 T chopped fresh parsley
1) Cut chicken breasts in half, then lay flat and
   slice horizontaly through center of chicken to
   make 4 cutlets.
2) Place flour, ½ t salt, ½ t pepper in shallow
    dish. coat  both sides of chicken, shaking
    off excess.
3) Heat large saucepan on MH and add 2 T oil and
   1 T butter. When hot and melted add the chicken
   and cook 2-3 minutes on each side until
   browned. Remove chicken from pan.
4) Reduce heat to M and add the remaining 1 T oil
   and 1 T butter. Stir in onions, mushrooms,
   remaining ½ t salt. Cook 6-7 minutes stirring
   occasionally until onions and mushrooms have
   softened.
5) Stir in the ½ C marsala, ½ C broth, and 2 T
    glaze. Then return the chicken to the pan.
    Simmer 2-3 min. until the sauce thickens
    and the chicken is cooked.
6) Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve with
     pasta. Spoon the sauce over the chicken.

Tomato Spinach Pasta
3 C chicken stock (remainder from the box)
2 c water
12 oz linguini pasta
¼ C Parmesan cheese
4 oz goat or ricotta cheese (optional)
1 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes, drained
3 C baby spinach

Bring water and stock to a boil. Break pasta
in half and add. Stir and cook for 12-15 mins,
stirring occasionally until most of the liquid is
absorbed. 
 Stir in cheese until blended. Add
tomatoes and spinach. 
 Stir until spinach wilts.
The pasta is a nice side.  I'll use again because it
adds more vegetables and color to any dinner.


ENJOY!

  1. I would like to try this chicken recipe and all I could find is balsamic reduction. Is that the same thing as balsamic glaze? Will it work? Thank you for posting this recipe.

    1. yes, I did this time. I think the linguini is my preference but spaghetti is just fine to use.
      Thanks for visiting Judy.
