Chicken Marsala is made with a wine reduction sauce and originated in the late 1800's with families living in Italy. As restaurants picked up on the easy-to-make dish, Americans took notice, and it is now popular in the United States. The meat in Chicken Marsala (or Veal Marsala) is pounded flat and floured. While you can sprinkle some flour over the meat to help in browning, this recipe doesn't include it). You can use chicken breast tenderloins (quicker and less expensive) as a simple trick to make this dish cook up even quicker. Be sure to use dry Marsala wine, not sweet, to save calories. Ingredients 4 boneless skinless chicken breast cutlets 1 small onion 1 cup crimini or porcini mushroom slices 3 tablespoons olive oil 1/2 cup dry Marsala wine 2 tablespoon minced Italian (flat leaf) parsley 1/2 cup chicken broth (or chicken bouillon equivalent) Preparation 1. If desired, pound chicken between two pieces of wax paper or plastic (use anything from an old wine bottle to a small heavy pot for this). Season chicken with salt and pepper.2. Heat oil in a skillet and add chicken. Pan fry chicken for 5 minutes on each side until golden, turning once until done. Remove, and cover with foil to keep warm.3.

Add wine to pan and cook for 1 to 2 minutes.5. At this point, judge the amount of liquid for sauce for chicken. If you need more, add a bit of broth. Taste, and adjust seasonings.5. Pour vegetables and sauce over chicken, and sprinkle with parsley.
