  • 2 large boneless chicken breasts (about a pound)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons butter , more if needed
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/3 cup marsala cooking wine , can also use dry or sweet
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream , more if desired

S&P, to taste

    Optional: Freshly chopped parsley or thyme

      For serving: Mashed potatoes, noodles or rice


        • Cut the chicken breasts in half horizontally to make 4 chicken fillets. Then whisk together the flour, garlic powder salt and pepper in a shallow dish. I usually add about 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper to start. Then coat the chicken breasts in the flour mixture.
        • Heat the olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly shake off any excess flour from the chicken and then place into the skillet. Cook 4-5 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. 
        • Add more butter if needed and then cook the mushroom for 3 minutes. Then pour in the marsala wine and boil down for a minute to burn out the alcohol. Then add in the chicken broth and simmer for 5-10 minutes. 
        • Once the sauce has begin to thicken, slowly whisk in the cream and cook until it has come to a light simmer. Taste and add more cream, S&P if desired. Then add the chicken back into the pan and cook an additional 1-2 minutes. 
        • Serve chicken over mashed potatoes, noodles or rice. Garnish with fresh parsley or thyme if desired.
