Beautiful chicken dressed in a rich Marsala sauce with mushrooms is the perfect dish to create at home. It’s simple and quick to make and the sauce is to die for!


  • 2 chicken breast, halved
  • 250g/8 oz cremini/chestnut mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 60ml/3/4 cup Marsala wine
  • 150ml/1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 150g/1 cup flour
  • Salt & pepper
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Fresh parsley finely chopped


Season the flour with salt and pepper and dredge the chicken breasts in the flour.

Drizzle some oil in a large saucepan on medium heat and cook the chicken for around 3-4 minutes each side.

Take the chicken out of the pan and set aside.

Now add the mushrooms and cook for around 5 minutes, add the garlic and continue to cook for 2 minutes.

Add in the Marsala wine and reduce for around 5 minutes.

Add in the butter and chicken stock and bring to a simmer.

Add the chicken back to the pan and cook for a further 5 minutes. Season to taste and sprinkle the parsley on top.
