Chicken Marsala


12 oz mushrooms (frozen are ok)

½ stick margarine



Sauté mushrooms in skillet until majority of liquid has evaporated. Transfer to another bowl.


2# chicken pieces – 2# chicken tenders cut into bit sized pieces (use scissors if possible to cut. It is easier.) Set aside.

1 stick margarine

Dredge chicken pieces in ¾ Cup flour seasoned with seasoning salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Shake flour from chicken and sauté in same skillet as mushrooms were cooked until chicken is browned but not

thoroughly cooked – about 2 minutes per side.

Remove chicken from skillet leaving as much liquid as possible in skillet. If more oil is needed, you can use Crisco oil.


Add to skillet::

1 1/2 C. Marsala wine from Liquor Store Taylor New York Marsala (1.5 L)

3 C. water

Add extra flour in bowl to skillet

Bring sauce to a boil and it will begin to thicken.

Add back Chicken and Mushrooms to skillet and sauté another 5-7 minutes.

Add: 2 TBSP drained capers from brine solution while mixture is sautéing. Add parsley.

Season as needed with seasoning salt and pepper. Be careful with salt due to saltiness of capers. If sauce is too thick,

add more water. If more flavor is needed add chicken bouillon cubes to taste.


For cooking rice:

Use equal amounts of rice and water:

3 C Rice + 3 C. water and 2 chicken bouillon cubes crushed per C of water or 6 cubes.

Microwave for around 11 minutes or cook per directions on package for bulk.
