Directions

  1. With a mallet, pound chicken breasts thin. Cut into serving size pieces. Dip in flour. Dip in egg.
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter or margarine and 1 tablespoon oil in a wide skillet. Saute chicken until light brown. Do not crowd pan, and add more oil if necessary to keep chicken from sticking. Place chicken on a serving platter, and keep in a warm oven.
  3. Saute sliced mushrooms in oil and butter remaining in pan until released juices have evaporated and mushrooms begin to brown. Add chicken broth, Marsala wine, oregano, parsley, and meat extract. Stir well. Cook over high heat until liquid is reduced by half.
  4. Remove pan from heat. Swirl in 2 tablespoons butter or margarine and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Pour sauce over chicken, and sprinkle with cheese.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I tried this recipe after years of having it in restaurants and wondering what they had used to make this. Finally I found this recipe and I was very, very pleased. It was easy to make and delicious. I did end up having to add more olive oil to prepare the chicken and a bit more marsala wine for the sauce but overall it was great! I would reccommend letting the sauce and the chicken sit for a while so that the flavors are absorbed.

Good Recipe! I changed a few things though. Instead of using egg and just flour I omited the egg and added 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp black pepper, 1/2 tsp dried oregano to 1/4 cup flour and dipped the chicken in that and then fried it. I didn't have the meat extract and couldn't find it at 2 grocery stores so I ommitted it and added 1 tsp chicken bullion granules. I used cooking wine so didn't add any additional salt. Before swirling the butter and juice, I added about 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream and thickened it with a water/flour mixture. I served it to guests and they loved it.
