Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • ½ all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp dried parsley

  • ½ tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • ½ yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 cup Marsala wine
  • More salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Pound the chicken breasts thin using a meat mallet and placing them between two pieces of plastic wrap. Pat them dry using paper towels.
  • Prepare the flour for dredging by mixing it in a shallow dish with the Italian seasoning, dry parsley, salt, and pepper.
  • Place the chicken breasts one by one into the seasoned flour (cover them on both sides), and remove the excess.

  • Place the sliced onions and mushrooms over the chicken breasts, pour in the wine, put the lid on, and simmer for 15 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Notes

  1. Shake the excess flour off the chicken breasts before browning them to prevent excess bits and pieces of flour from burning and stick to the bottom of the skillet.
  2. Make sure the skillet is hot before adding the olive oil and the butter, and make sure they are hot before placing the chicken breasts in the skillet.
  3. For proper browning, do not move the chicken breasts for the first 2 minutes.
