At our house tonight we’re having a celebration dinner– our daughter-in-law Jan (son Johnny’s wife) passed the California Bar! The time between taking the bar (because of all the essay questions) in late July and learning the results yesterday was a tortuous wait. I’m serving Chicken Marsala with green beans.
Ingredients serve 4 (but I’m doubling the recipe)
|2 tsp olive oil|
|1 cup(s) mushroom(s), fresh, sliced|
|1 pound(s) uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, four 4 oz pieces|
|1 tsp dried thyme|
|1/2 tsp table salt|
|1/4 tsp black pepper|
|1/2 cup(s) wine, Marsala variety|
|1 1/4 cup(s) canned beef broth, reduced-sodium, divided|
|1 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch|
- Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and sauté until tender and releasing liquid, about 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, place chicken on a plate and season both sides with thyme, salt and pepper. Move mushrooms to outer edge of skillet once cooked. Place chicken in center of skillet and sauté until golden, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.
- Add wine to skillet; simmer 1 minute. Add 3/4 cup of broth and simmer, uncovered, until chicken is tender and cooked through, about 8 minutes.
- Dissolve cornstarch in remaining 1/2 cup of broth in a small bowl; add to skillet. Simmer until sauce thickens, stirring constantly and incorporating mushrooms into the liquid, about 1 minute. Serve chicken with mushroom sauce spooned over top. Yields about 3 ounces of chicken and 1/3 cup of sauce per serving.
