  • Yield: 4 servings


8-- boneless chicken breast halves
1cup seasoned flour
1/2cup butter
16ounces angel hair pasta, cooked, drained
Marsala Sauce:
3cups sliced mushrooms
-- Reserved pan drippings from the chicken
1-- (10-ounce) can chicken broth
1/2cup sweet or dry marsala
-- Freshly ground pepper to taste
1tablespoon cornstarch
3tablespoons water


  1. Rinse the chicken and pat dry.  Coat the chicken in the seasoned flour in a bowl. 
  2. Melt the butter in a medium skillet.  Add the chicken.  Cook over medium heat for 4 minutes on each side or until cooked through, reserving the pan drippings for the sauce.
  3. Arrange the chicken on a bed of angel hair pasta on a serving platter.  Spoon the Marsala Sauce on top.
  4. To prepare the sauce.  Saute the mushrooms in the reserved pan drippings in a skillet.  Add the chicken broth, marsala and pepper.  Add a mixture of the cornstarch and water.  Cook until thickened, stirring constantly.

Note:  Cook the pasta just before serving.  Angel hair pasta cooks very quickly since it is so fine in texture.
