  • 26oz. skinless and boneless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder

  • 8 oz. sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup sweet Marsala fortified wine
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • salt

  1. Pound chicken breasts out to equal 1/4 inch thickness then cut in half (learn how to pound out chicken cutlets here).
  2. In a shallow bowl combine flour, garlic powder, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper. Dredge chicken in flour.
  3. Add vegetable oil to large skillet and heat over medium until shimmering.
  4. Add chicken and cook 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove to a paper-towel-lined plate.
  5. Add mushrooms to pan and cook, stirring occasionally until well-browned, about 4 minutes.
  6. Season mushrooms with 1/4 tsp. salt and then add the Marsala wine, scraping the bottom of the pan to pick up any bits. Stir until the wine is thickened to a syrup.
  7. To the pan, add chicken stock and simmer 2-3 minutes.
  8. Return chicken to pan and heat throughout.
  9. Transfer chicken to plates and spoon mushrooms and sauce over top.
