Ingredients

  • 8

    chicken cutlets, about 1½ pounds (or boneless thighs pounded thin)

  • salt and pepper

  • unbleached all purpose flour

  • 2

    tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 3

    tablespoons butter

  • ½

    small onion, chopped fine

  • 8

    ounces white mushrooms, quartered/ or sliced baby portobello mushrooms

  • 1

    garlic clove, minced

  • ¾

    cup sweet marsala wine

  • ½

    cup low sodium chicken broth or ⅔ whipping cream

  • 2

    teaspoons fresh lemon juice

  • 1

    tablespoon fresh minced parsley

  • 1

    teaspoon tomato paste (optional)

  • ½

    cup Gorgonzola (optional)

Directions

1. Pat the chicken cutlets dry with paper towels and sprinkle them with salt and pepper. Dredge the cutlets in the flour to coat and shake off excess. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a non stick skillet over high heat until just smoking. Add 4 cutlets and cook until golden brown, 2 to 2 1/2 minutes on each side. Transfer to a large plate and tent with foil. Repeat with the remaining oil and cutlets. 2. Melt one tablespoon of the butter in the now empty skillet over medium high heat. Cook the mushrooms and onion till browned, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant , about 30 seconds. Transfer the mushroom mixture to a bowl and tent with foil. 3. Add the marsala and broth to the empty skillet, bring to a boil over high heat, and cook until reduced to 1/2 cup, about 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium low and return the chicken and accumulated juices to the skillet, and turn the chicken to heat through, about 1 minute. Transfer chicken to a serving platter. Turn off the heat, whisk in the remaining 2 tablespoons butter, lemon juice, parsley, and mushroom mixture. Pour the sauce over the chicken and serve. Note: The Gorgonzola: 1/2 cup added at the end, until melted, and then the remainder sprinkled on top.
