CHICKEN MARSALA MY WAY Notes
I made this one up to suit our tastes and to use that wonderful Spice House Herb de Provence every chance I get. It's the best you can find. It's nice to make this large a batch and then freeze it or serve a crowd.
Note: keep your herbs in the freezer and just fill small containers for use in the kitchen to keep them fresh.
- 3 Pounds chicken thighs
- olive oil for frying
- flour for dredging
- 1 1/2 Cups Marsala wine
- 2 cans (or 1 quart) low-sodium chicken broth
- 2 Tablespoons butter mixed with 2 Tablespoons flour for thickening (beurre manier)
- 1 Tablespoon Herbs de Provence (plus some for chicken pieces)
- 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
- 2 Tablespoons granulated onion
- chopped fresh parsley for garnish
Serves / Yields
Salt, pepper and herb de provence on Chicken.
Dredge the chicken in flour – saute in olive oil on med/hi until brown ---About 2 min. per side
Remove and set aside in plate – do in 2 batches in large pan.
Add the marsala and reduce about 2-3 minutes.
Add the chicken broth.
Put Chicken back in and mix in with the broth.
Cover and simmer 20-25 minutes on Low.*
Remove chicken to a bowl.
Stir in the beurre manier with a whisk to thicken sauce.
Put chicken back in and simmer 5 minutes.
Add PARSLEY and adjust seasonings to taste.
SERVE OVER JASMINE OR REGULAR LONG GRAIN RICE.
*You can use chicken breasts if you prefer - just cut in medium sizes, and cook for only about 10 minutes in the sauce so it doesn't get rubbery.
Another option is adding mushrooms, which you can saute in the chicken fon w/ a little more butter, before putting the broth back in. I prefer Jasmine rice cooked with a dash of butter, but any rice will do.
