This is one of those dishes. You know the ones. The kind that you make once and say, oh my gosh where has this been all my life and immediately vow to put it on your regular dinner rotation from now until the end of time. One of those dishes that is easy enough to fix any old chaotic Wednesday night but taste and looks fancy enough to impress guests on the weekend.

A winner winner chicken dinner.

This dish is pretty quick to make, 45 minutes tops, and involves three main steps. First you will cook those mushrooms in a pan on the stove in some melted butter along with some garlic because GARLIC=yummmmmmm. Next you toss the chicken in some flour to give it a very light, perfect breading and then cook that for just a minute or two on each side in the same pan you used to cook those butter garlic mushrooms. This gives the chicken a nice browned crust on the very outside – the rest of the cooking happens in phase three, the oven.

You just add the sauce to the pan and sprinkle lots of mozzarella and parmesan cheese over your chicken and mushrooms, stick it in the oven covered in some foil for about 15-20 minutes and let that chicken really soak up the marsala sauce. Then for the last 5 or 10 minute you uncover the dish and let that cheese get reeeeeeallyy mellllllty.

That’s it! Dinner is served. The best mushroomy, garlic-y, marsala saucy, cheesy chicken you could ever ask for.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to even thickness
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 8 ounces fresh mushrooms, diced
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup marsala cooking wine
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • salt and pepper to taste (I used about 1/2 teaspoon each)
  • 1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 green onion, chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a large baking dish and set aside.
  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in garlic. Saute mushrooms in melted butter 2-3 minutes until tender and fragrant. Use a slotted spoon to transfer mushrooms to a bowl or plate and set aside.
  • Toss chicken breasts in the flour to coat. Cook for 1-2 minute on each side in the same pan you used for the mushrooms (do not clean the pan in between). Transfer chicken to your prepared baking dish. Scatter mushrooms over the chicken.
  • Add marsala wine and chicken broth to the pan. Add salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 5-10 minutes. Pour over chicken and mushrooms.
  • Mix together cheese, sprinkle over chicken and mushrooms. Sprinkle green onions on top. Cover dish with foil and bake for 15-20 minutes. Uncover and cook for another 5-10 minutes until chicken is cooked through and cheese is melty and serve.

This looks absolutely delicious, just perfect!

I made this the other night. Dinner consisted of us, faces hovering over our plates, shovelling in the amazing chicken in near total silence. 🙂 Get. In. My. Mouth.

Awesome, tasty and easy! Thanks for the share, it is definately going on our Must-Make-Again list.

Made this tonight and it was a hit with the family. Will definitely be making this again!

This recipe is also fantastic when you make it with Campbell’s Chicken Marsala Skillet Sauce and add a little marsala wine and water!

Please don’t use cooking wine. Use real Marsala. It is worth the slight difference in cost.

    I’m not so sure about that, Martha. I recently substituted ‘real’ Marsala wine in a recipe, which originally called for Marsala Cooking Wine. I did NOT care for the flavor of the final dish. I’ll next try it with the cooking wine, and then I’ll decide if I ever want to make it again. Perhaps, I just don’t like Marsala wine. I’ll see.

      personally I would never use cooking wine just cut down on the amount the real thing is always better

I am going to make this tonight for dinner. Please give me suggestions for 2 sides. I was thinking broccoli and wondering what else?

    Mine were aspargus and pasta. 😊 so good!

Made This for dinner — so good! Delicious and beautiful enough for special occasions; yet, easy enough you actually Do it! A keeper for sure. Thank You!

My wife went nuts over this dish. however, i did add some fresh English thyme and cooked the chicken in Chef Shamy Butter With Asiago Cheese & French Onion. Even the kids loved it, so time to add the dish to the rotation.

    Awesome job, Stephen! I am glad to hear that you had such a great experience with this recipe. Thanks for sharing your feedback!

Can you make this ahead of time and cook in the oven the next day? If you yhink it is possible would you Let me know. Thank you

    It would probably work fine but it hasn’t been tested so I can’t say for sure. I suggest covering tightly before placing it in the fridge, and increasing the covered cooking time because the dish and food will be cold when it goes into the oven. I would love to hear how it goes for you!
