1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 (16-ounce) package boneless skinless chicken breast tenders
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic
1 cup dry Marsala wine or chicken broth
1 (8-ounce) package sliced mushrooms
Hot cooked regular or spinach fettuccine, if desired
Chopped fresh parsley


Combine flour, salt and pepper in large resealable plastic food bag. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in pie pan or shallow bowl. Dip chicken in melted butter; place into bag. Seal bag tightly; shake to coat chicken.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in 12-inch skillet until sizzling; add chicken and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat, turning once, 6-8 minutes or until chicken is browned. (Reduce heat, if necessary, to prevent garlic from burning.) Add wine and mushrooms. Continue cooking 4-6 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and sauce is slightly thickened.

Serve over fettuccine, if desired. Sprinkle with parsley.

Recipe Tip

A Sicilian import, Marsala is Italy’s most famous wine. The flavor is very rich and slightly smoky. Dry Marsala is often used in savory cooking whereas the sweet variety finds its way into desserts. In this particular recipe, a dry sherry could be substituted.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

So good! I have made this recipe twice now and the next day leftovers are even better then the first night. It does take a little longer for the sauce to thicken a bit but other then that this recipe is perfect!
Very good this was a better recipe than others I had used
Super easy recipe and it was delicious! I added onions and my family loved it! Served over egg noodles the first night and over mashed potatoes the next night. I will definitely be making this again!
This a great recipe and so easy to make.
Great recipe, next time I will cut the chicken tenders smaller and serve with penne pasta with the chicken and sauce mixed
Delicious! Absolutely perfect just the way it is. This tastes like it is from a restaurant. Even our picky 4 year old devours this. It's a keeper!
Quick, easy, and yummy!
My husband and I love onions so I added some to the recipe.
With or without the onions, it is simple and delicious.
I did not have garlic on hand, so substituted onions. It was very good tasting, but next time I will try it with garlic.
