An easy one pan chicken recipe with a sauce so delicious, you’ll want to lick the pan clean.
But maybe don’t, because not only is that a little like, you know, germy, but the pan could be hot.
Kind of not really a good look. You know?
But seriously, this is an easy one pan chicken marsala recipe that you’ll want to add to your weeknight recipe repertoire, pronto.
It does have a decent amount of butter and oil, and the base of the sauce is made with marsala wine (obvi), so this is not a low-fat diet recipe you pull out when you’re looking to lose some weight.
But what this easy chicken marsala recipe is is a comforting, delicious, savory and warming weeknight dinner, and I think your family is gonna love it.
That’s this easy one pan chicken marsala, straight up.
The marsala makes it feel ever so fancy, but really it’s just a basic fortified wine you keep in your cupboard so it’s ready when you are. Leave the good wine for drinking. Marsala wine is slightly sweet and makes a way better sauce base.
I know I keep going on about this sauce, but this is another thing I love about it: the sauce is thickened with flour that the chicken has been dredged in, which accelerates the browning of the chicken while adding body to the marsala sauce.
A word about the spinach stuffing; I tested this recipe using frozen chopped spinach, which I found to mix great with the grated parmesan. I haven’t tried using fresh spinach, but if that’s what you have on hand, I think using about a third less than the recipe calls for and roughly chopping it before mixing with the grated parmesan would work just as well.
Adding in a mellow starch like egg noodles keeps this easy one pan chicken dish squarely in the kid-friendly camp, as well.
Because hands up if your kid prefers to only eat the boring stuff you serve them and not the actually delicious stuff.
Which means that this is a dish that keeps the whole family happy!
And in the meantime, who’s got tips on how to actually get my kid to eat dinner?
Um, asking for a friend.
Anyway! Easy one pan chicken marsala with melty cheese and mushrooms for the win!
