  • 4 Filets Chicken Breasts (skinless/boneless)
  • 1 Tbsp Butter
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper

  • 4 cups Mushrooms (sliced)


  1. Season chicken filets with salt and pepper (both sides)
  2. Dredge chicken in corn starch (shake away excess starch)
  3. Melt Butter in a large skillet and add olive oil
  4. Cook chicken for about 5 minutes per side (should be golden but not browned).   Remove from skillet and keep warm (oven @ 175).
  5. Saute the mushrooms in a separate skillet until cooked t0 a golden brown but still firm texture.
  6. Add the Marsala to the skillet to deglaze the pan.  Once deglazed, add the chicken stock cubes and 1/2 the water to the pan.  Bring to a boil – boil for 2 minutes.
