Chicken Marsala Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 4 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts (item #: 115510 )
  • All-purpose flour, for dredging
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 oz. Prosciutto, thinly sliced
  • 8 oz. Cremini or Porcini mushrooms, stemmed and halved
  • 1/2 cup Sweet Marsala wine
  • 1/2 cup Chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp. Unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup Chopped flat-leaf parsley

Method:

  1. Place the chicken breasts on a cutting board cover in plastic wrap and pound with a flat meat mallet until they are about 1/4-inch thick.
  2. Put some flour in a shallow platter and season with salt and pepper; mix with a fork to distribute evenly.
  3. Heat the oil over medium-high flame in a large skillet. When the oil is hot, dredge both sides of the chicken in the flour, shaking off the excess. Slip into the pan and fry for 5 minutes on each side until golden brown, turning once. Remove the chicken.
  4. Lower the heat to medium and add the prosciutto to the drippings in the pan, sauté for 1 minute. Add the mushrooms and sauté until browned, about 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper.
  5. Pour the Marsala in the pan and boil down for a few seconds to cook out the alcohol. Add chicken stock and simmer for a minute.
  6. Stir in the butter and return the chicken to the pan; simmer gently for 1 minute.
  7. Garnish with chopped parsley before serving

Recipe: Easy Chicken And Dumplings

To us, nothing screams cold-weather meal quite like Chicken and Dumplings, but who has time on a weeknight for homemade dumplings? Not us! Cut some corners on the prep work and cleanup, but get all of the irresistible flavors of this comfort food favorite with our recipe for Easy Chicken And Dumplings. We dare you to find someone who doesn’t love this one…

Chicken and Dumplings

Ingredients:

  • 2 Large Boxes Chicken Broth
  • 1 Can Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1.5-2 Cans Pillsbury Grands Homestyle Biscuits (or similar)
  • 2-3 All-Natural Chicken Breasts (boiled and chopped to bite-sized chunks)
  • 2 Stalks Celery (chopped)
  • 1/4 Cup Baby Carrots (chopped)

Method:

  • In a bowl combine cream of chicken soup and enough of the chicken broth (approx. 1/2 cup) to create a smooth, soupy texture.
  • Quarter the biscuits and with the palms of your hands roll the pieces into balls to create dumplings.
  • Combine the rest of the chicken broth, carrots and celery in soup pot and heat.
  • Once at a soft boil, add the dumplings. As they heat, the dumplings will swell significantly and ultimately shrink back down.
  • Once the dumplings have shrunken down, add the cream of chicken soup mixture and stir well.
  • Add the chicken and allow the soup to continue to cook until evenly heated. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.
