Chicken Marsala

This week has been so different with the little missy starting TK at a new school. She is in a completely new environment and I can tell it is pretty draining on her. It has been a good reminder for me to continue on a healthy path with our family meals. Any type of change always makes me want comfort food. I’ve teamed up with Foster Farms to bring you one of my favorite healthy comfort dishes, Chicken Marsala! This is a meal you can feel good about serving any day of the week. It has fresh, simple ingredients perfect for a delicious family meal.

I picked up the new locally grown, Foster Farms Simply Raised chicken breast tenders at my last Target Run. I love that this chicken is always fresh and California grown. Foster Farms is working hard to provide locally grown food with no antibiotics ever. The tenders make this dish really easy to make since they are already cut at the right size. This Chicken Marsala recipe is easy to create and can be done in just one pan.

saute onion and mushroom

First, add a little olive oil to a warm pan and sauté sliced onions and mushrooms. I love the smell of onions and mushrooms cooking. Then set those aside and cook the chicken.

Once the chicken is cooked, you can set that aside with the onion and mushroom mixture. Next up is the sauce! Pour Marsala into the pan and cook down for 1 minute then add butter, sour cream, flour and seasonings. Let that cook for about 5 minutes.

Then just add all the ingredients back to the pan to sauté together. There you have it! A simple chicken marsala that you can make any day of the week!

We eat a lot of chicken at our house and it is always nice to mix it up a bit. Chicken Marsala has always been one of my favorites. I love the creaminess and the mushroom flavor. Mark is not a fan of mushrooms but he just picks those out and enjoys the rest of the dish. Chicken Marsala can be served on top of rice, pasta or even grits. I used brown rice to keep up the heathy comfort side of this tasty weeknight meal.
