Marsala Chicken

In late August my family held a late wedding shower for Jake and I. At the shower each guest was asked to bring a recipe card with their favorite recipe written on it. We got some great recipes and we're determined to try them all before the New Year. Tonight, we made the Marsala Chicken from my Cousin Jake and his beautiful wife, Carissa.

Jake pretty much cooked the Marsala chicken while I worked on the salad and dressing. He did a great job! The recipe was easy to follow and didn't take long at all. The next time we make it we'll add some prosciutto and make more sauce.

Marsala Chicken:
2 chicken breasts
1/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon dried crushed marjoram
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1/2 tablespoons sliced onions
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup marsala
salt and pepper to taste
Mix flour, marjoram, salt and pepper; lightly press chicken into flour mixture, both sides.
Cook mushrooms and onions in butter until tender. Remove and replace with chicken in same skillet on med-high 4 minutes. Add mushrooms and onions, then add broth and marsala; cook uncovered 2-3 minutes until sauce thickens.
Transfer chicken to serving plate, spoon mushroom mixture over chicken.
