Chicken Marsala with Mushrooms

Chicken Marsala with Portabella Mushrooms

This is throwback to when I worked in professional kitchens. This was on the menu often. It can be made in less than 20 minutes and I love it served with egg noodles to soak up all of the delicious sauce it make.

I use Sweet Marsala for mine but most Chicken Marsalas are made with Dry Marsala. Your choice. Marsala is a wine from Sicily. It is known as a “fortified wine”, meaning that a spirit such as brandy has been added to it. This also helped to extend the life of the wine.

Traditionally butter is added at the end of the cooking time. Remove the chicken to a serving dish.  Add cold butter a tablespoon at a time off of the heat. For this recipe I would use 4 tablespoons of cold butter. Swirl the butter in the pan until it melts.Then add the remaining cold butter a tablespoon at a time. For calories sake I rarely add it now but do love it in the sauce. I used portabellas in this because that is what I had. You can use just regular mushrooms, which I usually do and the mushrooms won’t be as dark.
