If you love flavorful one-pot meals, then you are going to love this easy chicken marsala recipe. Made with juicy chicken breasts and delicious mushrooms, this recipe is one of our favorite meals to whip up on the regular.
One of the reasons we love chicken marsala so much is that it incorporates simple cooking techniques to produce a restaurant-worthy meal. Classic concepts such as dredging the chicken in flour to seal in moisture and using wine to deglaze the pan are basic and easy steps that produce impressive results in the finished dish.
We also love the flavor profile of chicken marsala thanks to the earthy mushrooms. Chicken marsala is a chance to use your favorite mushrooms, whether that’s porcini, shiitake, or cremini.
One step that you may not do very often in your cooking routine is flattening out the chicken breasts before cooking them. You’ll need a meat mallet to pound the chicken breasts flat so that they’re thinner and will cook more quickly.
An alternative to using the mallet is to use a sharp knife and slice through the chicken breasts horizontally, splitting each breast into two thin halves.
The bonus with this creamy chicken marsala recipe is that it comes together very quickly without the need for a pressure cooker. In fact, we recommend avoiding a pressure cooker since it only takes about 25 minutes for this meal to come together. Plus, the flavors are best in this dish when the ingredients are layered in.
