Marsala-Style Chicken

Tender chunks of chicken coated with tangy mushroom sauce served over wide egg noodles make a hearty meal.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 4 ounces chicken and 1/3 cup sauce)


  • 1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 3/4 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup dry Marsala wine
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • none Cooking spray
  • 1 none (8-ounce) package pre-sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon light butter
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


Place chicken between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap, and flatten to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Cut into 2-inch pieces.

Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add chicken; seal and shake to coat.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan; keep warm.

Combine broth and next 6 ingredients in a small bowl.

Coat pan with cooking spray. Add mushrooms; sauté 3 minutes or until tender. Add broth mixture; bring to a boil. Cook over medium-high heat 4 minutes or until thick, stirring constantly. Stir in butter. Spoon over chicken. Sprinkle with parsley.
