Creamy Chicken Marsala Pasta

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s day yesterday!

I have a super yummy dinner recipe for you today.  Since it is an Italian meal, I thought I would share a simple fact about me and Italian food.I never go out to eat to Italian restaurants, unless I have a gift card or its a majority-wins group dinner.  I know, I know, I am crazy.  I hate paying lots of money for something that typically, is fairly cheap to make.  So today, I have an Italian recipe that is yummy, fairly easy, and can be made in the comfort of your own home!  I hope you like it as much as we did!

CHICKEN MARSALA PASTA
recipe from: What’s Cookin, Chicago?

Makes: 4-6 servings 

2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts; cut into bite sized pieces
10-12 ounces sliced mushrooms
1 small onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup Marsala cooking wine
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 pound dry pasta + water for cooking (I used penne, rigatoni is also good)
1 cup Parmesan cheese + more for serving
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
salt and pepper to taste
minced, chopped fresh parsley for garnish

 

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet until foaming. Cook chicken until lightly browned. Transfer to plate when done. Boil water and cook pasta according to the directions.

Melt additional 1 tablespoon of butter in skillet, add garlic, mushrooms and onion and cook for about 6 minutes. Add cooked chicken back into the skillet. Add the Marsala, chicken broth and cream and bring to a boil. Simmer until sauce is is slightly thickened.

Drain pasta and reserve 1/2 cup cooking water. Return the pasta  to the pot with the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter. Add the mushrooms and chicken mixture and 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese and cook until the pasta has absorbed some of the sauce, about 1 minute, adding the reserved cooking water as needed.

Season with salt and pepper and serve with additional Parmesan cheese and a garnish of chopped parsley. 

Enjoy!

    Oh wow I wish I had seen this yesterday!! Chicken marsala is my husband's favorite dish that I make, so I made it for Valentine's Day last night. This is very similiar to what I do but I've never tried making it creamy... I think he would LOVE it!

    This is my favorite dish and I used to order it out all the time at a cost of $13-$17 for one dinner and leftovers the next day. I recently decided to try and make it myself and it is delicious! It is cost effective to make at home and easy to do. I have never made it with cream(I will need to try it) and I always use an abundance of mushrooms-I love them :) I found my recipe on allrecipes.com Have a beautiful day!

    The dish looks great. But I wanted to comment because I TOTALLY 100% agree about Italian restaurants. I tell this to all my friends and they think I'm crazy. Glad to know someone else agrees!! :)
