Aaaah ...rosemary-herbed chicken breasts braised in Marsala wine with portobello mushrooms and onion, then topped with melting mozzarella. The cooking technique promises the plumpest, juiciest chicken breasts ever!
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 8 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1/4 cup Marsala wine
- 1 cup chopped portobello mushrooms
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
- 4 slices mozzarella cheese
Season flour with poultry seasoning. Dredge the chicken breasts in the seasoned flour. In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, fry the chicken in the oil for about 5 minutes each side, depending on the thickness. Remove the chicken and set aside (keep warm.)
Deglaze pan with Marsala wine (deglazing is swirling or stirring a liquid in a pan to dissolve cooked food particles remaining on the bottom). Add the chopped mushrooms, chopped onions and rosemary. Saute for 5 minutes over high heat.
Return the chicken breasts to the skillet, baste with drippings, put cheese on the breasts and cook for another 2 1/2 minutes with the lid on tightly. Don't touch the lid! Remove from heat and let stand for 10 minutes, until the breasts cook through. Check the seasoning and adjust. You will have the plumpest, juiciest chicken breasts you can imagine!
