4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and about 1/2 cup sauce)

Try a lighter take on classic chicken marsala with this dish dressed in mushrooms and a marsala wine sauce. Serve with mashed potatoes or egg noodles to soak up the tasty sauce.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place porcini mushrooms in a small bowl; cover with boiling water. Cover and let stand 30 minutes or until tender. Drain and rinse; drain well. Thinly slice.

Step 2

Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; pound chicken to 1/2-inch thickness using a meat mallet or small heavy skillet. Combine 3 teaspoons flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and black pepper in a shallow dish. Dredge chicken in flour mixture.

Step 3

Heat a large stainless steel skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add chicken; cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Remove from pan; cover and keep warm.

Step 4

Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in pan over medium-high heat. Add onion, red pepper, and garlic; sauté 2 minutes or until onion is lightly browned. Add remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, porcini, shiitake, button mushrooms, and oregano; sauté 6 minutes or until mushrooms release moisture and darken. Sprinkle with remaining 1 teaspoon flour; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in wine; cook 1 minute. Add broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 1 minute. Add chicken and tomatoes; cook 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated, turning chicken once. Sprinkle with basil.

The recipe was pretty easy. Next time I will omit the tomatoes. Like other reviews have said, they didn't seem to belong. Good mixture of mushrooms.

Delicious and easy. I have made this twice. Once with all ingredients and once with only the Crimini mushrooms and no basil. Both time were excellent. Give it a try

Very good. After spending a small fortune on mushrooms, I couldn't bring myself to pay $3 more for basil. (Not garden season) I had fresh sage, so I toasted it in butter and crumbled it on top. OMG it made a great recipe amazing! And I used the liquid from reconstituting the porcinis, just a little less broth. I left out the tomatoes; just didn't seem that they belonged.
