- 4 pounds chicken breast
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tbsp salt
- 1 tbsp ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup butter
- 12 ounces sliced mushrooms
- 2 cups Marsala wine
- 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
4 pounds chicken breast
- Use boneless chicken breast.
- Chicken should be at room temperature.
- Cut into 1/2 inch strips, then cut into smaller pieces if necessary (1/4 to 1/3 inch).
3 cups all-purpose flour
Flour is a staple of any kitchen, and it’s important to know how much flour you need for your recipe. All-purpose flour is made from hard wheat, which means it has a higher protein content than other types of flours (like bread or pastry). Bread flour has more gluten, which helps it rise higher during baking.
How much flour should you use? The usual rule of thumb is that one cup of all-purpose will yield 5 cups of dough (that’s 1 pound). If you want an even thicker crust on your dough, use 2/3 cup instead!
To make roux: Place oil in pan over medium heat; add onion and cook until soft and translucent—about 10 minutes; add garlic powder/dried oregano/salt mixture & stir through until fragrant before adding broth or water; reduce heat to low once simmering begins again after adding liquid so as not too scorch onions or burn seasoning off them (this may take awhile).
1 teaspoon salt
Salt is a preservative, flavor enhancer and texture enhancer. It can also be used as a food preservative and flavoring agent.
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
Ground black pepper is made from the dried, dark red berries of the pepper plant and can be found in most grocery stores. It’s used to add flavor to food by adding heat, saltiness and pungency (a combination of both sweet and bitter tastes) at once. This spice is also known as “black pepper” or simply “pepper.”
1/4 cup butter
Butter is the key to making this dish taste amazing. It adds flavor and moisture, which is especially important when you’re making a quick stir-fry like this one. And it’s so healthy!
Butter can be used as a substitute for oil in many recipes because it has similar properties as olive oil: both have high amounts of monounsaturated fat (the good kind). You should always use unsalted butter or margarine—most have salt added to them, which makes them taste better but also increases the calories by about 15 percent per tablespoon compared with salted ordinary butter or margarine.
12 ounces sliced mushrooms
It’s important to use a variety of mushrooms if you can find them. The flavor will be more intense and you’ll get more nutrients from the ones that are in season at the time of cooking.
To sauté the mushrooms, heat 1 tbsp butter in a skillet until shimmering hot. Add half of each type of mushroom and season with salt and pepper; cook over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes or until softened but not browned on the inside yet (this is key). Turn off heat source, add heavy cream or broth to deglaze pan residue (or use wine), then pour mixture over cooked mushrooms in saucepan—tossing gently so as not to break apart any large pieces of mushroom cap—and set aside until ready to proceed with steps below
2 cups Marsala wine
Marsala wine is a sweet Italian wine that’s made from grapes grown in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. The grapes are left to ferment on their own, then pressed before being distilled and aged for three years or more.
Marsala is a great choice for any occasion! Pair it with grilled meats like chicken marsala, seafood paella and even pasta Alfredo sauce for an elegant dinner party dish.

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Add the parsley to the dish near the end of cooking. Fresh parsley is a great way to add a nice fresh flavor and brighten up your dish’s color.
