Chicken Breasts with Marsala Wine
(Petti di Pollo al Marsala)
 
 
Ingredients:

4 whole chicken breasts
2 eggs
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1 and 1/2 cups dry unflavored bread crumbs
1/3 cup freshly grated Parmigiano cheese
1/4 cup butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup dry Marsala wine or port 

Directions:

Remove skin from chicken breasts.

Ease flesh away from bones with a sharp knife.

Cut boned breasts in half.

Beat eggs with salt and pepper in a medium bowl.

Combine bread crumbs and Parmigiano cheese in a small bowl.

Spread on aluminum foil.

Dip chicken breasts in beaten eggs, then coat with bread crumb mixture.

Press mixture onto chicken with the palms of your hands.

Let coated chicken stand 10 to 15 minutes.

Melt butter with olive oil in a large heavy skillet.

When butter foams, add chicken breasts.

Cook over medium heat until chicken has a light-golden crust, 2 to 3 minutes on each side.

Add Marsala or port.

Cover skillet and reduce heat.

Simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken is tender. If sauce looks too dry, add a little more Marsala or port.

Turn chicken several times during cooking.

Place chicken on a warm platter.

Taste and adjust sauce for seasoning, then spoon over chicken.

Serve immediately. Makes 8 servings.

That's it!
