Creamy Chicken Marsala Recipe – 30 Minute Dinner

(gentle music) (boards scraping) – Hey everybody, it’s Natasha,
of, and today, I’m gonna teach you
how to make Chicken Marsala. This is a 30 minute
recipe, restaurant quality, and an easy weeknight meal, so let’s get started! We’ll start with some quick prep. You’ll need eight ounces, or half a pound, of brown mushrooms, sometimes called baby bella mushrooms. Thickly slice those up and set them aside. Next, finely mince two
large garlic cloves. Also, finely chop two
tablespoons of fresh parsley, you can use flat leaf or Italian parsley, and I like to chop a little
extra to garnish the top. You’ll need two large chicken breasts. Cut those in half lengthwise so you end up with four even cutlets. For more even cooking times, it helps to pound the chicken between some layers of plastic wrap to about 1/3 to 1/4 inch thick. You can pound the chicken using the flat side of a meat mallet, or a variety of other kitchen tools. (mallet pounds) Season the chicken all over
with half a teaspoon of salt, and a quarter teaspoon of black pepper. Pour 1/4 cup flour into a shallow bowl, then dip each chicken cutlet, shaking off the excess flour. Dredging the chicken in flour will give it a beautiful golden crust, and will help thicken up the sauce. Place a large skillet over medium heat, and add two tablespoons of olive oil, and one tablespoon of butter. Once the butter is melted
and the oil is hot, add the chicken to the
pan in a single layer. Saute about three minutes per side, or until the chicken is golden brown and just cooked through. With chicken, I like to double check with an instant read thermometer to make sure it’s reached a
safe 165 degrees Fahrenheit, and I’ll link to the
thermometer we use in the notes. Once the chicken is done, remove it to a plate and cover
with foil to keep it warm. Add your thickly sliced mushrooms
with more oil as needed, and saute those for another five minutes, until the mushrooms are soft and golden. Once the mushrooms are done, sprinkle the top with half
a teaspoon of onion powder, and two minced garlic cloves. Saute for another 30
seconds, stirring constantly, or until the garlic is fragrant. Add 3/4 cup of dry Marsala wine, and make sure it’s a dry
Marsala, and not a sweet Marsala. Boil that down for about
four to five minutes, or until most of the liquid is evaporated, then add 3/4 cup of chicken stock. While stirring the sauce, slowly pour in half a cup
of heavy whipping cream, then bring it to a simmer and
continue to cook the sauce another four to five minutes, or until it’s slightly thickened. Season the sauce at the end with another quarter teaspoon of salt, or add salt to taste. Once the sauce has reached
your desired consistency, add the chicken cutlets back to the pan, and sprinkle the top all over with two tablespoons of fresh parsley. Spoon the sauce all over
the chicken cutlets, and keep it on the heat just until the chicken is heated through, then take it off the stove. (laughs) I am so excited to eat this. It is time for the taste test. And I do like to serve with a
little bit more fresh parsley, because it gives it that vibrant color, and of course more flavor,
we’re all about that. And then of course, spoon
on some extra sauce, over each piece of chicken. Plenty of mushrooms, oh, this
is so creamy and delicious, I cannot wait. And the sauce does get a
little bit thicker as it cools, so don’t worry if it seems
a little light at first. Okay, here we go. And I wanna show you just how juicy and tender this chicken is, so take a look. Okay, hop in here. Oh yeah, that’s what I’m talking about. Yum, okay. And of course, I’m gonna
have a little bit more sauce, because that is what makes
this chicken so, so fantastic. Yeah, we like to keep
chicken exciting around here. (laughs) Oh, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum. Okay, here we go, the taste test. Are you excited? I’m excited. Extra saucy. Mm, mm, mm. I love that the sauce
has so much rich flavor, but it feels light and
so, so satisfying, yum. And then it’s got those meaty mushrooms, I love that they’re thickly sliced. I love mushrooms (laughs). And this thickly slicing them gives them that much more flavor. Let’s get some of those
mushrooms, smothered in sauce. This gets me excited, because it totally tastes like my favorite restaurant chicken Marsala! And it is so easy to make at home. And just, make it at a
fraction of the price. This is so good over pasta, steamy, buttery white rice, or creamy mashed potatoes, but you can just put it on
everything, it’s delicious. If you made it through our taste test, you’re probably hungry for more. Check out some of our all-time most popular easy chicken

  5. Hi Natasha! I love your recipes! Question for you:
    What can I use instead of marsala wine as a replacement? We don't put alcohol in our food.

  6. Here is why this is my new favorite cooking channel – The RECIPES! And, of course, Natasha. I love cooking shows but rarely are the recipes that great when I try them. America's Test Kitchen has been the most reliable… until now. We first tried the Beef Stroganoff – Amazing! Then the apple pie – Delicious (even with no brown sugar)! Almost every recipe was a hit (I like my chicken alfredo better but I still learned things from her video that made mine better and easier). Bravo and thank you so much for the resources on the website. They REALLY help!!! You are a gift.

  7. I have seen a lots of cooking videos but non has catch my attention untill your videos popped up on my youtube. I ended up watching more of it. Im a bit addicted.

  18. Wooow I'm so surprised, I've seen so many recipes of chicken marsala that use the wrong type of marsala wine, I managed to find one who used the correct wine. The correct wine to be used is the darker coloured wine instead of the lighter coloured or champagne coloured wine. Kudos Natasha, Kudos!❤❤❤

  19. My husband is my taste tester when he comes home from work…. I dont know if he is to hungry or what? Lol… 😂😂😂

  20. Beautifully enriching as always! Oh, entertaining too…by the way, "steamy buttery white rice…did you make that up or it is a recipe? All the best.

  21. I've been waiting for this one, love Chicken Marsala, thank you so much! You are such a hoot, thanks for the chuckle too.

  22. I made tea for you But I didn't add sugar why Because you are already sweet… Love you from India 🇮🇳 😍 🇮🇳

  23. That looks so delicious, Natasha. And so beautifully filmed. Would a couple teaspoons of soy sauce work as a sub for the wine? Maybe not? (:
