Chicken Marsala


This Chicken Marsala demonstrates the wonderful Italian influence on Australian cuisine. Basically this dish is sauteed chicken fillets, with a mushroom sauce and Marsala wine. Hard to resist, right?

30g butter or margarine

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 clove garlic, crushed

4 chicken breast fillets

1 cup of button mushrooms or champignons

1/4 cup marsala

1/4 cup cream

salt and pepper to taste

chopped parsley


Heat the butter and oil together in a frying pan. Add garlic. Cook for 1 minute.

Add chicken to pan. Cook for a few minutes each side until golden. Remove chicken from the pan.

Mix in marsala, stir to remove sediment from the bottom of the pan. Simmer for 1 minute. Add mushrooms and saute for 2 minutes.

Blend in cream and season to taste. Simmer until beginning to thicken.

Return chicken to the pan and heat gently for 5 minutes.

Sprinkle with parsley and serve with egg noodles and a crisp fresh garden salad.
