For the best flavor in this classic one-pan chicken dinner recipe use real Marsala wine, not the cooking-wine kind. Serve with mashed potatoes.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Season chicken with 1/4 teaspoon each pepper and salt. Place flour in a shallow dish and dredge the cutlets in it, pressing gently to fully coat.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add half the cutlets and cook until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with 1 tablespoon oil and the remaining cutlets. Cover to keep warm.

  • Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and creminis to the pan; cook, stirring occasionally until tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Add shiitakes to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally until tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to the bowl and season with the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt.

  • Add onion, thyme and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper to the pan; cook, stirring often, until the onion is translucent, 2 to 3 minutes. Return the mushrooms to the pan. Stir in Marsala and broth, scraping up any browned bits. Simmer over medium heat until slightly reduced, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in butter. Serve the chicken topped with the sauce.

This recipe was really good. The chicken cutlets I used were a bit thicker than 1/2 inch so ai coked them about 4 min on each side and put them back into the sauce at the end to simmer in the sauce for a couple of minutes. I also ended up using more crimini mushrooms than shiitake and added a bit of garlic powder and a TB of corn starch to the liquid before pouring it in to flavor and thicken the sauce a bit more. I served it with sauteed broccoli and green beans and mashed potatoes. I would definitely make it again. Read More

This was a very good recipe. I didn't have marsala on hand and didn't want to run out and buy a whole bottle for the half-cup required so I used a dry white wine (a blend). Other than that I made as directed. I did throw the onions in a bit early as the shiitakes were finishing up just to save a few minutes. One reviewer mentioned thickening the sauce but we liked the thinner sauce with the mashed potatoes. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly and was looking forward to a tasty dish...but it was very bland. Maybe could be improved with the prosciutto included in similar recipes? Also two min. per side for 1/2 inch chicken cutlets wasn't long enough to cook the chicken I cut each breast in half as recipe suggested (butterflied them) and had to cook them 5-6 min. per side.
