Creamy Chicken Marsala
I really like this recipe. The Author has some great ideas. Additionally you can leave out the cream all together and just use a little more chicken stock (save out a couple tablespoons and add 1 Tbsp or cornstarch to thicken it up slightly. Add the cornstarch the last couple minutes of cooking. I would also use 2/3 cup of Marsala and a crushed clove of garlic. This is really good with mashed or baked potatoes.
If you do not use the cream you can also, at the last minute, put a couple of asparagus (steamed first or simply sauteed for a couple minutes in a little olive oil in a separate pan) on top each chicken piece (forming an X) and then add a slice of Swiss cheese on top of each piece of chicken and put under broiler till the cheese starts to brown in spots. (OMG)

A creamy and delicious classic italian dish that is ready in under 30 minutes! The creamy sauce is full of flavor and mushrooms and will be one of the best things that you make!

NOTE: There are alternate suggestions in the description, and below, you might want to consider.
In a large skillet over medium heat add 1 tablespoon olive oil to the pan. Add the chicken and lightly salt and pepper. Cook until lightly brown and cooked throughout. Remove chicken and set aside on plate.
Add 1 Tablespoon olive oil and sauté the mushrooms for 1-2 minutes. Add marsala wine and bring to a boil over medium high heat for 1-2 minutes. This allows the alcohol to burn out. Add the chicken broth, heavy whipping cream, ground mustard, and garlic powder. Bring to a boil and reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes or until it starts to thicken. Place chicken back in the sauce and continue to simmer for about 1-2 minutes.
*I like to slice my chicken breasts in half or buy them thinly sliced so that they cook quickly and easily.
** The alcohol in the marsala wine burns off during the cooking process. If you are worried about cooking with wine, they say this recipe makes a good substitute.
1/4 cup of white grape juice
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons of sherry vinegar
