Chicken Marsala

This is such an easy dish to make and so delicious! I serve it with either angel hair pasta or mashed potatoes and a green vegetable.

3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise (to make 6 thinner pieces)
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup flour
salt & pepper
8-oz package of mushrooms, sliced
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup Marsala wine
1/2 cup chicken broth

Mix some salt & pepper into the flour in a shallow bowl. Dredge the chicken in the flour then saute in the olive oil, about 3 minutes per side (until browned). Place chicken in a 9x13 baking dish. Melt the butter in the same pan and saute mushrooms for 3-4 minutes. Add the Marsala wine and chicken broth and simmer for 5-6 minutes. Pour the sauce and mushrooms over the chicken.* Bake uncovered at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.

*You can freeze the dish at this point. Thaw completely and bake as directed above.
