  • 4 chicken breasts cutlets
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1 bunch scallions, sliced thinly
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup Marsala wine
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Fresh thyme leaves ( for garnish)


  • Dredge both side of the chicken breast cutlets in flour, add salt and pepper and set aside.
  • In a large sauce pan add the canola over medium heat and sauté the garlic, mushrooms and onions until soft, about 4 minutes.
  • Next, add the chicken breast cutlets and sauté for about three minutes a side. Once the chicken has browned on both sides add the chicken broth and the Marsala wine and simmer to thicken. Allow the chicken to cook for about three more minutes. Add the butter to finish the sauce.
  • Serve with a side salad or plate of spaghetti or mashed potatoes. Spoon the sauce and mushrooms over the chicken. Sprinkle with fresh thyme.
