I love fresh mushrooms; they give any dish a wonderful earthy flavor. This mouth-watering dish features fresh mushrooms with both provolone and freshly grated Parmesan cheeses over chicken cutlets made from the Chicken Cutlet Module (link at the bottom of this article) with a wonderful Marsala wine sauce. Although the dish takes just 10 minutes or so hands-on time, those lucky people eating dinner at your house will think you spent hours in the kitchen! This delicious dish is quick and easy enough for a weeknight dinner; it is also a great dish to prepare for company; you’ll spend less time in the kitchen and more time doing the things you really love to do!
Shortcut Marsala Chicken with Mushrooms
6 chicken cutlets, from the Chicken Cutlet Module
3 slices provolone cheese, cut in half
1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 cup dry marsala wine
1/2 cup double strength chicken broth, (or 1 bouillon cube dissolved in 1/2 cup hot water)
3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Place a half piece of provolone cheese on top of each of the chicken cutlets; layer them in a casserole dish, slightly overlapping. Cover with the sliced fresh mushrooms.
Pour the marsala into a skillet; turn the heat to high and bring to a boil. Boil until reduced by half, about 5 minutes; add the chicken broth and return to boiling. Remove from the heat and pour over the mushrooms in the casserole dish. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese. Cover tightly with foil (I spray the underside of the foil with non-stick spray so it doesn't stick to the cheese).
Bake in a preheated 350° oven for about 20 minutes or until heated through and the sauce is bubbling. Do not overcook.
