  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 lb chicken breast
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 large shallot minced
  • 8 oz mushrooms sliced
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup marsala wine
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste


  • Place chicken in a plastic bag, and lightly tenderize it with the smooth side. You can also use a rolling pin. Season with a hefty pinch of salt and pepper on each side.
  • Heat butter and olive oil in a large pan over medium heat
  • Once butter bubbles, add the chicken breasts seasoned with salt and black pepper.
  • Let chicken cook for 3-5 minutes on each side or until a golden brown color is achieved.
  • Remove from pan and set aside on a plate.
  • In the same pan, add shallots, garlic, and extra olive oil if needed. Stir well and avoid caramelization. Add mushrooms and cook for five minutes while stirring frequently.
  • Add flour and stir until you no longer see the white of the flour.
  • Add stock, marsala wine, and milk. Stir well.
  • Taste the sauce and add salt and pepper to taste. It shouldn't be bland.
  • Return the chicken back to the pan. Cover with lid, and reduce heat to medium-low to finish cooking until internal temperature reaches 160 deg F. The temperature will continue to rise as the chicken rests.
  • Serve with roasted potatoes or mashed potatoes
