  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 medium chicken breasts boneless, skinless
  • 2 cups mushrooms sliced
  • 1/2 cup marsala wine
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp mustard powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

Serving - optional

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • rice, potatoes or noodles
  • fresh parsley for garnish


  • Place a medium skillet on medium heat. (If serving with starch, start cooking that separately now.)
  • Add olive oil followed by chicken breasts. Cook 2-3 minutes per side until golden on the outside and cooked through. If your chicken breasts are larger, you may need an extra minute or two.
  • Remove chicken to a plate. (Optional: place in a 200°F oven to keep warm.)
  • Raise the heat to medium-high and add mushrooms and sauté for 3-5 minutes until browned, stirring regularly.
  • Add marsala wine to the pan and allow to boil for a minute to let the alcohol evaporate.
  • Stir in chicken broth, heavy cream, garlic powder, mustard powder, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 7-10 minutes until the sauce is thick enough to coat a spoon.
  • Place chicken back in the pan along with the optional tomatoes. Spoon sauce on top and simmer for 1-2 minutes more.
  • Remove to plates and serve with optional starch. Sprinkle optional minced parsley on top. Serve and enjoy!



  • If you can't find marsala wine, sherry is a good substitute or you can use non-alcoholic white wine if you prefer to avoid alcohol.
Here are our favorite variations on this chicken marsala recipe:
  • Pound the chicken into 1/2-inch thick fillets with a tenderizer for faster cooking
  • Add minced shallots with the mushrooms to introduce some onion flavor
  • Add in a few spoonfuls of capers to make a tangier sauce
