Some years back, my good friend Beth gifted me with a recipe for chicken marsala. I recently found the notecard that I'd initially written the recipe details down on, and made it again with a few small modifications. It turned out amazing!

Savory Chicken Marsala


* 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
* 1 Tbsp Emeril's Essence spice mix
* 1/2 tsp sweet paprika
* 1/4 tsp half-sharp paprika
* 1 tsp baking powder
* 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in half and pounded thin
* 1 Tbsp olive oil
* 2 - 4 Tbsp of butter
* 3 cups (about 8 oz.) sliced mushrooms (I recommend portabello, criminy, or shiitake)
* 1 large yellow onion, diced
* 1 1/2 cups marsala cooking wine
* 1 cup chicken stock
* salt and pepper to tast


1. In shallow bowl or plate, combine flour, Emeril's Essence, paprikas, and baking powder.

2. Dredge chicken through flour to cover and shake to remove excess.

3. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet. Add 1 tablespoon butter and chicken to brown. While chicken is cooking, combine diced onions and leftover flour/spice mix in a small Ziplock bag or covered bowl and shake thoroughly to coat onions.

4. Remove browned chicken and set aside on a clean plate. Add 1 more tablespoon of butter, mushrooms, and floured onions to skillet. Saute, stirring often, until mushrooms have given off their fluid and onions are near-golden.

5. On medium heat, add marsala wine and bring up to a boil. Scrape the pan to bring up any bits. Bring back to medium heat and reduce wine-broth in half.

6. Once broth is reduced, add chicken stock. Reduce/simmer on medium heat for another 3 - 5 minutes.

7. Reduce heat to medium-low, add chicken, and let cook in sauce until cooked through -- about 5 - 6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve chicken and ladle the savory thick sauce immediately over rice or noodles. Enough for 2 - 4 people, depending on how hungry they are.
