Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 thigh, 1/4 cup sauce, and 1/2 cup noodles)
Sun-dried tomatoes, shiitake mushrooms, and Marsala wine give this sauce a rich, robust flavor. While the sun-dried tomatoes are rehydrating, prepare the rest of the ingredients.

  • 4 (6-ounce) chicken thighs, skinned
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 cups quartered button mushrooms (about 4 ounces)
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced fresh shiitake mushroom caps (about 3 ounces)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/3 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 5 tablespoons Marsala wine, divided
  • 3 tablespoons half-and-half
  • 4 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 cups hot cooked wide egg noodles (about 1 1/2 cups uncooked)

How to Make It
