Chicken Marsala (Pollame alla Marsala)
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4-6
  • 3 tablespoons of salted butter
  • ½ cup Marsala wine (dry or sweet)
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • Bunch of pasley, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Container of stock mushrooms (sliced) - you can use fancier mushrooms, but in our view this is a basic chicken dish so more elaborate ingredients are unnecessary.
  • 2-3 chicken breasts - cut into 3 pieces each (you can flatten the breasts if you'd like for more tender chicken
  • ½ cup flour
  1. Heat a large pan over medium heat and add 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil and add the sliced mushrooms. Add salt and pepper and cook for 5-10 minutes. Move the cooked mushrooms, and any liquid, to a clean plate.
  2. Flour the chicken breasts and remove any excess flour. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 2 tablespoon of butter to the same pan and brown each side of the chicken breasts (about 2-3 minutes on each side).
  3. Remove the chicken breasts to a clean plate and add another tablespoon of butter to the pan. Raise the heat to high and add the wine and lemon juice; cook for 3-4 minutes and add the chicken breasts and mushrooms back to the pan. Lower the heat and add the parsley. Cook for another 3-5 minutes.
