DAWN!! go to her page if you like shoes) then this is an absolute MUST try.
I really like chicken marsala, but I wanted something a bit creamier that will really stick to the chicken and the pasta. So I decided to add a dollop of mascarpone cheese to the sauce and believe me, you will too once you try it. eek!
This recipe will be for 2, but even if you double it, 2 people will still be licking the plates and pans clean. You can always make extra sauce by adding extra broth, wine etc.
2 boneless chicken breasts, pounded as thin as possible (or you could cut them and pound out)
1/2 cup marsala wine (or madeira or even sherry)
1 tbsp dijon mustard
2 tbsp mascarpone cheese (or cream cheese but try to use mascarpone)
1 cup chicken stock
Flour for dredging
Salt n pepa
With your pounded out chicken, sprinkle each piece with salt and pepper and toss it in flour. You don't want it to be heavily coated, just enough to form a crust. In a preheated pan over medium to high heat, heat some olive oil. I use no measurements, maybe a table spoon or you can even use cooking spray, and add your chicken and let them cook thoroughly on each side. Try not to flip them for at LEAST a few minutes, if they are sticking to the pan then they are not yet ready to be flipped. Once cooked, remove the chicken from the pan and set aside on a plate (juices will collect, this is good!)
Next, you'll want to scrape up the brown bits off the bottom of the pan so while its very hot, add the chicken stock and scrape away! Now lower the heat and add the wine, mustard and mascarpone, whisk til all thoroughly melted and incorporated. Add the chicken and juices and allow to simmer for a bit, the sauce should thicken a bit (not gravy thick, but shouldn't be watery either, if it is add a little cornstarch to some water and then add to the sauce).
Serve over pasta or mashed potato! In the pic I have also paired it with sauteed green beans and mushrooms. If you want more of the sauce, which I always do, just add extra broth, you can't really mess this dish up so don't be afraid to try. Want it creamier? Add more mascarpone! Get it?
