Autumn | Chicken Marsala and Mushrooms


Sweet, sweet chicken! We took home some Marsala wine (17% alcohol) from Italy to try out the famous ‘Pollo al Marsala’ recipe. Marsala comes from Sicily and it’s a fortified wine that tastes like Sherry. The Marsala I’m using is a ‘Fine’. This means it’s a very young wine and less than a year of age.

I’ve never eaten this dish before and this will be the first time! I got the recipe from Italian Food Net. You can follow the instruction video step by step. The only thing you have to be aware of is to adjust the cooking time to the size of the chicken breast. Don’t be shocked by the amount of butter used!

Preparation and cooking only takes about 20 minutes.

 Ingredients (serves 4 adults)

  • 4 pieces of pounded chicken breasts (beaten flat)
  • 200 – 250 grams of sliced mushrooms
  • 100 grams butter
  • flour to coat the chicken
  • olive oil
  • pepper
  • salt
  • oregano
