Chicken Marsala

Ingredients

teaspoon dried marjoram, crushed
1/8
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon black pepper
4
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
2
cups sliced fresh mushrooms
1/4
cup sliced green onion (2)
3
tablespoons butter or margarine
1/2
cup chicken broth
1/2
cup dry Marsala or dry sherry
 
Hot cooked pasta, such as capellini or linguine (optional)

Directions

  1. In a shallow bowl stir together flour, marjoram, salt, and pepper. Place a chicken breast half between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Using the flat side of a meat mallet, pound chicken lightly to about 1/4 inch thick . Remove plastic wrap. Repeat with remaining chicken breast halves. Lightly coat chicken on both sides with flour mixture; shake off excess.
  2. In a large skillet cook mushrooms and green onion in 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium-high heat until tender; remove from skillet. In the same skillet cook chicken in remaining 2 tablespoons butter for 5 to 6 minutes, turning to brown evenly.
  3. Remove skillet from heat. Return mushrooms and green onion to skillet. Carefully add broth and Marsala to skillet. Bring mixture to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Season sauce to taste with additional salt and pepper. Transfer chicken to a serving platter. Spoon mushroom mixture over chicken. If desired, serve over pasta.
