  • In a large bowl, whisk the flour with salt, black pepper, and oregano. Gently press the chicken breasts into the flour mixture to coat, and shake off the excess flour.

  • Heat the olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Arrange the chicken in the skillet and cook until the chicken is no longer pink inside and golden brown outside, 5 to 8 minutes per side. Drain the cooked chicken on a paper towel-lined plate.

  • Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in the same skillet over medium heat while scraping up any brown bits with a spoon. Stir in the garlic; cook and stir until fragrant. Add the mushrooms, and cook and stir until they are tender and have released their liquid, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper, then stir in the Marsala wine and chicken stock.

  • Transfer the chicken back to the skillet, and spoon sauce over chicken pieces. Increase heat to medium-high, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the the sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes more. Serve the chicken and sauce over the cooked rice.

I have been making Chicken Marsala this way for at least 25 years and it is the most simple and delicious recipe. Do try it you will not be disappointed. I will add that I use Sweet Marsala as opposed to the Dry Marsala and use more crushed garlic. Also you can place the cooked chicken breasts into a baking pan and then top with the sauce and place in the oven covered for approxiamtely 20 minutes at 325 degrees; an alternative to the stove top method.

Made this for the 1st time tonite. Didn't need the whole cup of flour maybe 1/2? I didn't have any white rice so I doubled the gravy and served on a platter of egg noodles. I was multi-tasking so I went with one of the reviewers suggestions and put in a baking dish in the oven for 25 mins. I Don't Think I'll do that again. While the chicken Was Tender and flavorful it caused the breading to have a slightly "Wet/Rubbery" texture. Next time I'll try the original skillet method. This is just me nit-picking tho. The recipe is Definately a Keeper! Read More

I made this last night. It was very good and I'll make it again but change a few things. A cup of flour was way too much I'll try a half next time. And there wasn't enough liquid - I'll double or maybe triple the liquids next time. Thanks for the recipe - easy and tasty. Read More

simple and easy and tasty! While not the most gourmet version possible this recipe certainly made this dish easy enough for a busy weeknight which I loved. I did not need the whole 1 C of flour. Two words of caution when making this recipe. 1. cut your chicken breasts thinly - I had to flip my thicker breasts several times which caused them to lose their coating. 2. I used canned broth and even though it was reduced sodium I'm glad I tasted the sauce before salting to taste - otherwise it would have been too salty for me. Read More

I just made this with a few adjustments for what I had on hand... I had leftover Jasimine rice so I used that just warmed it up and I did not have Marsala wine on hand so I used Chenin Blanc wine...this was SO delicious and my 12 year old asked me to make this a keeper so I think I will continue to make it the same way. Very good!!! Read More

I have tried other Marsala recipes from this site and I haven't liked any of them. This one is so simple and was amazing. Restaurant quality! I followed the recipe exactly except for the fact that I cut it in half for just my husband and I. I made it even easier and used 90 second microwaved brown rice. I served it with green beans. Awesome! Read More

I loved that the chicken was tender and not dry but didn't care for the sauce. The sauce was lacking flavor and my husband and I both thought it was too "winey." I'm going to try it again using a bit less wine more chicken stock and some ground mustard parsley and garlic powder with a splash of whole milk. Other recipes use a bit of ground mustard and garlic powder so maybe that will give it more depth of flavor. I did serve it with angel hair pasta which we liked. White rice plays hell with my Type 1 Diabetic husband but for some reason he handles a bit on angel hair better. Read More
