Description

Chicken with a beautiful Marsala, mushroom & prosciutto sauce!

Ingredients

  • 3 whole To 4 Whole Chicken Breasts, Cut In Half Vertically Into Cutlets
  • 1 cup Flour (or Enough To Dredge Chicken)
  • ¼ cups Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 slices Prosciutto - Roughly Torn
  • 3 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, Divided
  • 2 whole Shallots, Minced
  • 2 cups Mushrooms, Sliced
  • 1 cup Marsala Wine
  • ½ cups Chicken Stock
  • 1 pinch Flat Leaf Italian Parsley, Roughly Chopped

Preparation

Take your chicken, place a piece of Saran Wrap on top and pound flat. Season with salt and pepper and dredge in flour.

In a large skillet, pour in olive oil and heat over medium high heat. When oil is hot add the floured chicken cutlets. Depending on the thickness of chicken, cook for about 4-5 minutes per side until chicken is golden brown. Do not crowd your pan. Cook in batches if necessary. Remove chicken from pan and place onto a plate and keep warm.

Reduce heat to medium. Next, take your prosciutto and roughly tear it into pieces and drop into the same skillet (with drippings) and stir. Cook prosciutto for about one minute. Add shallots (or onions), mushrooms, and 1 Tablespoon of butter. Stir and cook for about 5 minutes, until shallots are translucent. Add in the Marsala wine, stir and bring to a boil. Add in chicken stock and remaining butter and simmer until it reduces slightly, about 2 minutes. Return chicken to pan to heat through. The flour from chicken will help to thicken the sauce further.

Garnish with chopped Italian Parsley. And enjoy!

Excellent recipe. We made this today for Sunday brunch. I omitted the Proscuitto and added the kosher Salt and pepper in the actual flour instead of the chicken by itself. This makes the batter flavorful instead of bland.

Next time I’ll try the proscuitto when I have it on hand, until then, this is my trusty go-to recipe for guests. Thank You!

This is one of our favorite recipes. We LOVE it. It’s our go-to meal when we are expecting company and satisfies even the pickiest eater. I serve it with a side of penne alfredo for a super decadent dinner.

SOOOOOO good! I’m not a mushroom person (so I didn’t add them), and it was a tad sweet for my usual tastes, but I REALLY liked it! I only used two chicken breasts, and added a pinch more flour to make it thicker, but it still turned out great! Wonderful recipe!!!

This was yummy! My husband liked it too. We made with roasted garlic mashed potatoes. Even heated up great the next day!
