Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds chicken breast halves, boneless, skinless
1/2 cup parmesan, parmigiano-reggiano cheese, grated
1/3 cup butter
or margarine
3 cloves garlic
10 large mushrooms
sliced
1 dash cayenne pepper
*
1/2 teaspoon chicken bouillon, powdered
or one cube
*
1/3 cup water
hot
1/3 cup marsala wine
*

Directions

Cut chicken into 2-inch pieces and flatten with mallet.

Place Parmesan cheese in wide, shallow bowl.

Coat chicken pieces well with the Parmesan.

Melt some of the butter or margarine over medium heat in a large skillet.

Sauté the whole garlic cloves and the coated chicken pieces, a few at a time, until golden brown on both sides.

Add remaining butter or margarine, as needed, and set pieces aside as they brown (in a low oven on a deep platter).

Discard the garlice pieces after all chicken has been sauteed.

In a small amount of additional butter or margarine (only if needed) in the same skillet, sauté the sliced mushrooms 5 minutes; remove to platter with the chicken.

To the butter/margarine remaining in skillet, add cayenne pepper, bouillon and hot water; stir until the "fond" (brown bits clinging to bottom of the pan) dissolves.

Add back into the skillet the chicken and mushrooms.

Cook 1 minute over high heat.

Add Marsala wine.

Stir; turn off heat and cook 1 to 2 minutes.

Serve immediately.

While traditionally, the chicken breast halves in a Marsala are kept whole, I prefer to cut the chicken in pieces and pound thin. This makes the sauteing go quicker and the recipe goes farther, serving six instead of four.

Great idea about cutting the chicken into chicken cutlets

I have never made something like this before and it makes more than we could or should eat at one sitting so am wondering if anyone knows how it would be reheated.

How well does this reheat as it makes a lot for 2 people.

If you only have two people and you don't want to make big amount, you can simply half the recipe. If you do want to make the whole recipe, the leftover just put in the microwave for a few minutes until heated through, and it still tastes good. That's is how we reheat our leftover, and no influence on the taste. Hope this helps!

I couldn't have said it better myself. I always make the full batch and find the leftovers reheated in the microwave are excellent. Just don't cook it too long or at full power (the chicken will dry out).

I want to thank you all for your suggestion on reheating. I am going to give this a try on Sunday and will let you know how it turnedo out.

If you use plastic wrap to cover the entire dish and sprinkle about 1 tsp water in it will keep moist and not dry out. i do this with reheated pasta recipes and it works like a charm!
