Whip It Up-Chicken Marsala

I am making up my recipe from last week for Whip It Up because I did NOT have time to cook during VBS week. I barely had time to sleep or breathe!

So last night I made Chicken Marsala with spaghetti in an olive oil sauce.

This recipe was in my Recipe Binder. I received it from a parent of a student at my old job. She used to send in recipes once a week and I always made copies and put them in my binder. I thought I would try it!

She actually got the recipe from here.

Chicken Marsala

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lb)
1/2 cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms (3 oz)
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley or 1 tablespoon parsley flakes
1/2 cup dry Marsala wine or Progresso® chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
Hot cooked pasta, if desired

Total Time: 45 min

1. Between sheets of plastic wrap or waxed paper, flatten each chicken breast to 1/4-inch thickness. In shallow dish, mix flour, salt and pepper. Coat chicken with flour mixture; shake off excess flour.

2. In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook garlic, mushrooms and parsley in oil 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

3. Add chicken to skillet. Cook about 8 minutes, turning once, until brown. Add wine. Cook 8 to 10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Serve with pasta.

I just cooked some spaghetti noodles, drained them, poured in some olive oil, Italian Seasonings, Parmesan Cheese and my secret ingredient was Tastefully Simple Garlic Bread Seasoning. Yum!

The final product!

1. Was the recipe easy to follow?
Super Super Easy!

2. Did the dish taste good?
The pasta was good...I didn't eat the chicken!

3. Would you make it again?

4. Leftover quotient?
There were 2 chicken breasts leftover (I only made 3)

5. Any additions/edits to the recipe?
I used Shiraz as the wine

6. Adam's thoughts?
"This was very good and I would be happy to have it again, however, it wasn't as good as the Parmesan Crusted Chicken."
**Side Note: I am very happy that Adam likes it because it is different and he has never had anything like it before. Normally he doesn't do different. The fact that he would want it again is HUGE!

Mmmm, I love chicken marsala. Of course, I hate touching chicken, so Ted would have to cook this for me!
