This Skinny, Easy Chicken Marsala Skillet is a delicious, creamy mushroom chicken recipe, made healthier with less cream and Marsala wine. It's a one-pan dinner that's freezer-friendly!
Step 1 Preheat olive oil in a large skillet over med-high heat. Add chicken cutlets and season with salt and pepper, then cook for 4-5 minutes each side until you get a good sear. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate.
Step 2 Without wiping skillet clean, add mushrooms, sauteeing 4-5 minutes until juices start to release, then stir in onions and garlic, sauteeing another 2-3 minutes until onions are translucent.
Step 3 Add in wine and let reduce for 1 minute, then stir in flour.
Step 4 Add chicken broth and chicken back to skillet. Bring to a boil and wait for mixture to thicken slightly, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in cream and cook another minute before removing from skillet.
Step 5 Plate chicken mixture and then add zucchini and red pepper to skillet, sauteeing for 4-5 minutes until veggies are tender. Add to plate or meal prep bowls with chicken then serve and enjoy!
Storing and Reheating This chicken marsala will last up to 4 or 5 days in the fridge. Keep chicken in individual servings in airtight containers and store in the fridge once cooled to room temperature. When ready to enjoy, reheat each serving on the stove or in the microwave if you're in a rush. Reheating on the stove may take a few minutes while reheating in the microwave will only take 1-2 minutes. When reheating in the microwave, sprinkle some water overtop to keep the chicken from drying out or having a leftover chicken taste.
Freezing this Recipe To freeze chicken Marsala, transfer the contents of the skillet into a freezer-safe storage container. A disposable aluminum pan with a lid works well, too. Keep the lid off, allowing the chicken to cool to room temperature. Once it is cool, cover the pan and place it into the freezer. Once frozen, it should keep well for at least 2 or 3 months. If you don’t plan to freeze it, keep the dish in the refrigerator and use within 4 to 5 days.
