  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts OR 4-6 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/3 cup flour + 2 tablespoons, divided
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 cup dry marsala cooking wine
  • juice of 1 small lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped parsley
  • 8 ounces tortellini pasta
  • fresh herbs, for garnish


  • Cook tortellini according to package's instructions, set aside. Season chicken with salt and pepper, toss in 1/3 cup flour, and add to a greased pan over medium heat. Cook 5-7 minutes on each side until chicken is cooked through and browned. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  • Add butter to pan and stir until melted. Add mushrooms, garlic, and parsley and continue to stir for 2-4 minutes until mushrooms are tender and garlic is fragrant. Sprinkle flour over mushrooms and stir until coated.
  • Add marsala wine and lemon juice to pan and stir 5-6 minutes longer, stirring throughout until sauce is thickened.
  • Add chicken and tortellini and cook until tortellini is heated through (3-4 minutes). Season with salt and pepper to taste, garnish with herbs (parsley or thyme are my favorites) and serve immediately.
