Ingredients

1 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, thinly sliced 300 g
2 tbsp white flour (all purpose) 16 g
1/4 cup Marsala wine 65 mL
2 tbsp butter, unsalted 28 g
1/2 tbsp canola oil 8 mL
1 clove garlic
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Method

  1. Slice the breast horizontally into thin cutlets. Coat each cutlet with the flour; then shake off the excess.
  2. Heat the butter and oil in a pan over medium heat, taking care not to let them burn. Add the whole garlic cloves, sauté 1-2 min, then add the cutlets and brown each side for about 2 min.
  3. Pour the Marsala wine into the pan, cover, and cook over low heat 6-7 min. Take out the garlic, then add salt and pepper to taste. Serve on the warmed plates.

I used an excellent port wine recommended by my local wine merchant. It gave the chicken a beautiful ruby-red glaze. :) It also gave the chicken a dark, rich date-like taste. Using a different wine would probably give totally different but equally good results! My roommate complimented me on it, first on how it smelled and later on how it tasted. Next time I'll measure the butter/oil more carefully, but otherwise this recipe is worth keeping.
