  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup Marsala wine
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, then dredge them in flour, shaking off any excess.
  2. Heat the olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the chicken breasts to the skillet and cook for 5-6 minutes per side, or until they are golden brown and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  4. In the same skillet, add the sliced mushrooms and garlic. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender.
  5. Pour in the Marsala wine and chicken broth, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet.
  6. Bring the sauce to a simmer and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until it has reduced by half.
  7. Return the chicken breasts to the skillet and spoon the sauce over them. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to heat the chicken through.
  8. Remove the skillet from the heat and garnish with fresh parsley before serving.


  • Make sure to use a dry Marsala wine for this recipe, as sweet Marsala can make the dish too sweet.
  • If you prefer a thicker sauce, you can whisk together 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of cold water and stir it into the sauce during the last few minutes of cooking.
  • This dish pairs well with pasta, rice, or mashed potatoes.


  • You can add in some chopped onions or sun-dried tomatoes for extra flavor.
  • For a creamier sauce, stir in 1/4 cup of heavy cream at the end of cooking.
  • If you’re a fan of spicy food, try adding a pinch of red pepper flakes to the sauce.
