step-by-step instructions

  1. Ingredients for four portions of chicken marsala.
    • Skinless, boneless chicken breasts, four pieces.
    • Mushrooms, 250 gm.
    • Marsala wine, Curatolo Dry Marsala Superiore wine is perfect, 150 ml.

      • Salt 1-1½ tsp

  2. Pound chicken breasts to ¼-½ inch thickness, slice mushrooms.

  3. Melt butter in olive oil. Olive oil will allow for butter to avoid burning during beginning of cooking.

  4. Mix flour with seasoning. Dip pounded chicken breasts in flour until seasoned flour cover meat completely.

  5. If the frying pan is quite small to cook all chicken at once, do it step-by-step. Fry chicken breasts on one side for 3 minutes. Please pay attention, meat should be fried only from one side!!!

  6. Take out partially cooked chicken breasts, and cook the rest of the meat.

  7. Place all meat uncooked side down on the frying pan, Add slices mushrooms and pour all wines. Cover pan with lid, and cook at medium heat until mushrooms will be tender, about 15 minutes.

  8. Serve with any simple side dish, like rice or as in my case with grilled asparagus.
