The Chef: Belkys Nerey
The Dish: Creamy Chicken Marsala
4 boneless chicken breasts
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup all purpose flour
4 tbs. butter
8 oz. sliced mushrooms
1 shallot, finely chopped
2 tsp. sage leaves, finely chopped
1/2 cup dry Marsala wine
3/4 cup chicken stock
2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
Method of Preparation:
– Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place each chicken breast smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick. Season with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Place flour in shallow dish; coat both sides of chicken with flour.
– In 12-inch skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat. Cook chicken in butter about 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Transfer chicken to plate; cover to keep warm.
– In same skillet, heat remaining 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Cook mushrooms in butter about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned. Add shallot and sage; cook and stir about 3 minutes or until shallot is softened. Pour Marsala wine into skillet; heat to boiling, scraping up brown bits from bottom of skillet. Stir in chicken stock, whipping cream and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; simmer about 3 minutes or until slightly thickened.
– Place chicken back in skillet 2 to 3 minutes or until cooked through (at least 165°F). Remove from heat; stir in lemon juice.
Serve with pasta, rice or mashed potatoes.
