Chicken Marsala Recipe

Chicken Marsala can be found at almost any restaurant in the United States. If you are not familiar with this dish – chicken marsala is an Italian dish that consists of lightly floured chicken with a delicious wine sauce and sliced mushrooms. The key ingredient to this recipe is Marsala wine; it has a very delicious flavor and should not be substituted. Marsala wine shouldn’t be hard to find and typically isn’t very expensive. I only added mushrooms to the recipe but if you want you could add some chopped shallots or even cooked bacon as well. The sauce needs to be reduced until it becomes somewhat thick, if you have a problem thickening the sauce you could stir in a little flour until you have achieved the desired thickness. This recipe is very easy and you will be eating it within an hour or less. Serve with linguini or your favorite type of pasta. Enjoy.

Chicken Marsala Recipe

  • Author: Bobby


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 10 ounces fresh sliced mushrooms
  • 4 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2 cups marsala wine
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 1 package linguini (cooked)



  1. 1 at a time, place chicken breasts between 2 sheets of wax paper (or plastic wrap). With a mallet pound chicken breasts until they are about ¼” thick.
  2.  On a plate combine flour, salt and pepper, and oregano. Dredge chicken breasts in flour until coated thoroughly.
  3. Heat olive oil and butter in a large skillet. Fry chicken breasts until they are almost fully cooked (about 3 minutes on each side).
  4. Remove from pan and keep warm in the oven at 175 degrees.
    Deglaze the pan with marsala wine. Make sure to scrape up all the brown bits on the bottom of the pan and mix them with the wine.
  5. Add chicken broth mushrooms and garlic. Cook on medium-high for 10 minutes or until the sauce has reduced by half.
  6. Add chicken breasts back to the pan and cook for another 10 minutes. The sauce should now have become somewhat thick. Serve on a bed of linguini.

Lori - I cant say I would recommend making this ahead of time. However, if you wanted to, just cook according to the directions but dont bread the chicken. So leave out the flour. Leave the chicken in the sauce and refigerate, and reheat when you are ready to serve.
