Chicken Marsala is not just something you have to wait to enjoy at your favorite restaurant.  What if I told you, you could have amazing Chicken Marsala tonight and in under 30 minutes?  No, I’m not crazy.  It can be done!  And, I’m going to show you how!  This recipe for Easy Chicken Marsala is one of my favorite go-to 30 minute meals.

The trick to this quick and easy recipe is to start with very thin chicken cutlets.  You can either use boneless, skinless chicken breast halves.  Or, you can cheat (like me) and buy them already sliced a quarter inch thick from the butcher.  I’m all about the easy way!

If you’re using the thicker chicken breast halves, start by slicing them in half length wise.  You will end up with four thin chicken cutlets. Place the chicken pieces between two pieces of plastic wrap and beat the heck out of them gently flatten them with a meat mallet until they are about 1/4 inch thick.     Either way is fine, as long as you have thin pieces of chicken.

I love this recipe because the chicken is moist and juicy and the sauce is rich and silky.  Then you top the whole thing off with sauteed mushrooms….mmmm!  It’s like dinner-time magic!
