Chicken Marsala

Hey friends!
Today, our recipe comes from my friend Melissa.  You can check our her writing here.

She is a great cook, momma and loves Jesus fiercely!

Chicken Marsala

1lb chicken breasts or tenders
1 package of mushrooms (baby bellas or white buttons are what I use)
marsala cooking wine
flour (wheat flour is a healthy substitute)
butter or margarine
a drizzle of vegetable or olive oil
chicken broth (optional)

cut up raw chicken into bite size pieces and coat with flour
saute in a pan drizzled with oil
brown both sides of chicken but do not cook through (2-3 minutes on each side)
remove from pan

melt butter or margarine in pan, add sliced mushrooms and cook a few minutes until butter is absorbed 
add generous amount of marsala cooking wine (I like to add chicken broth as well)
simmer on med low until mushrooms are soft and you have a good amount of sauce
Add chicken to pan and simmer in sauce and mushrooms until chicken is cooked through
**If you don't have enough sauce at any time, just add more broth/marsala wine

Serve over pasta or any rice
We love the Trader Joe's Organic Brown Rice from the freezer that you can microwave in 3 minutes

PS Elle gobbles this right up! I love that she will eat these mushrooms!
