This easy Italian favorite features tender chicken smothered in tasty mushrooms and a sweet wine sauce that will have everyone running to the table for dinner! Chicken Marsala is definitely a diabetes-approved classic!

What You'll Need

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (1-1/2 pounds total), pounded to 1/4-inch thickness
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 cup Marsala wine

What to Do

  1. Place the flour in a shallow dish. Add the chicken and coat evenly. Set aside.
     
  2. In a large skillet, heat the butter and oil over medium heat. Cook the chicken in batches for 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden and no pink remains. Remove the cooked chicken to a platter and keep warm.
     
  3. Add the mushrooms to the skillet; sprinkle with salt and pepper, and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes, or until tender. Return the chicken to the skillet, add the wine, and reduce the heat to low.
     
  4. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the sauce thickens and the chicken is heated through. Serve immediately.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Made this without pounding the chicken, just cut it up in pieces and make the recipe as stated. I have done it several times and plan on continuing to make it!

I just made this tonight. My husband loved it. It's a bit of work to pound the chicken and then fry in batches. I didn't get a lot of liquid left after condensing but I may have let it go too long. It was very good and I will make it again when I don't feel rushed.

Making it tonight!!

What a sophisticated meal to serve! This would be great for a date night!

What can I use in place of the Marsala wine? Can't have any alcohol.....

No worries, you can substitute with chicken or even beef broth!

On dialysis, can I use cornmeal instead of flour because I can have that & use a jar of mushrooms instead of fresh. On a budget & would love to make this, the nutrients are good too. Thanks

Hello! Yes, cornmeal can be substituted for flour, and you can use jarred mushrooms instead of fresh mushrooms, if you prefer.
