Ingredients (serves 4)
- 2 Chicken Breasts
- salt & pepper to taste
- 1/2 c. flour for dredging
- a few leaves of fresh tarragon
- 1 glove chopped garlic
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 lb. mushrooms sliced
- 1/2 cup dry marsala wine
- 1 large shallot chopped (or 2 small)
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 1/2 pound (uncooked) Pasta of your choice
Slice chicken breasts into medallions and pound thin (covered with cellophane or waxed paper & using any heavy kitchen object such a heavy spoon or a can of beans). Season with salt & pepper to taste. Set aside.
In a skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add minced garlic, shallots, salt & pepper to taste, and a few fresh leaves of tarragon. Add mushrooms and a few tablespoons of dry marsala wine and cook approx. 6 minutes until mushrooms are soft but not mushy. With a slotted kitchen spoon, transfer mushrooms to a dish and set aside, keeping skillet with remaining liquid in the pan.
In a small bowl, add flour, salt & pepper to taste for dredging the chicken medallions waiting for you from step one. Yes, we have seasoned BOTH the raw chicken and the flour with salt & the flour. Dredge chicken medallions in the dry flour mixture and add to medium-hot skillet used for the mushrooms. Chicken medallions should cook 3/4 of the way through. We’re looking for a nice caramelization and a little bit of color. Then set chicken aside on a separate plate. Keeping all fond in the skillet for our next step.
Now let’s de-glaze that pan on medium heat with marsala wine and chicken broth. Bring to a bubble, making certain to incorporate all bits of fond on the bottom of the pan into this sauce. Add a SMALL amount of sifted flour if a thicker sauce is desired.
Add cooked chicken and mushrooms back into the skillet and allow chicken to cook the rest of the way through, about 5 minutes more for thin medallions. More for thicker chicken.
Cook pasta according to package directions.
Arranged chicken medallions and mushrooms over cooked pasta and pour sauce over everything. Enjoy.!
