Preparation Method: Chicken Marsala Recipe
Place a bowl to mix the Marsala and the stock. You can do this with a measuring cup also, then spread gelatin after mixing.
Spice the chicken breast with salt and pepper; pour about half of flour inside into a measuring cup or bowl. Make sure you shred each chicken breast into the flour, stop if it’s in excess. After this is done, transfer the shredded chicken cutlets or breast into a clean plate.
Steam the olive oil until it shimmers as you do this, fry the chicken until it is browned a little. Make sure the chicken cutlets are browned on each side with a spatula, then transfer to the paper towels
Put the mushroom in skillet, but do not remove the oil that remains, and start cooking it immediately. Cook the mushrooms until it all its parts are browned evenly (do this for around 10 minutes). While cooking, add with garlic, thyme, and shallots. Stir until the shallots look translucent. If the pan looks dry, put some oil in it!
To add extra flavor, pour Marsala to the pan and also take out the entire gelatin. Make sure you scrape the browned parts at the bottom of the pan, till the liquids are reduced. When this is done, add some soy sauce and unsalted butter till it mixes together, then add salt and pepper to the mixture to spice evenly. Add some lemon juice to it to flavor.
Take the chicken cutlets to the pan, swirl to cover them with sauce. Make sure you the chicken cutlets don’t break, but if you notice this, then, then sprinkle some water to it. Transfer to the prepared recipe to a clean plate, adding the sauce all over the chicken. Add parsley and enjoy!
