Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: 4 servings


  • 4 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup Flour
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 3 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 cup Mushrooms, Sliced
  • 1 clove Garlic, Minced

  • 1 cup Butter
  1. Pound the chicken breasts to a 1/4 inch thickness between 2 pieces of waxed paper and pat dry.
  2. Season flour with salt and pepper. Add chicken and coat. Shake gently to remove excess flour.
  3. In a large saucepan over medium heat, add enough oil to coat the bottom and let come to temperature. Cook the chicken breast 7-10 minutes (or until done) turning once til they are golden brown.
  4. Remove the chicken and hold warm on a covered plate or in a 200 degree oven.
  5. Add the sliced mushroom and saute scraping the sides of the pan. (about 4 minutes)
  6. Add the garlic and saute one minute longer
  7. Add the Marsala wine to deglaze the pan, then add the beef or veal stock and allow to reduce by half.
  8. Stir in the butter one tablespoon at a time until melted and well blended.
  9. Finish by spooning the sauce over your prepared chicken.

Tips and Tricks

  • Instead of pounding your chicken breasts thin, cut into 1/4 inch medallions
  • Add diced tomatoes or basil (or other fresh herbs) when you add the stock for a tasty tang
  • Serve your chicken over linguine noodles
  • Garnish with fresh herbs or fresh grated cheese
  • For a creamy sauce reduce the amount of stock by half and add 1/4 cup heavy cream and 1/4 cup milk
