  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves large size
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 8 oz button mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup marsala wine
  • 1/2 cup beef stock
  • 2 oz prosciutto optional but nice if you have it
  • 2 tbs fresh sage chopped
  • 2 tbs unsalted butter


  • Slice chicken breasts in half lengthwise. Place each piece between plastic wrap or wax paper and pound with a mallet until it’s 1/3-inch thick. Season with a bit of salt and pepper.
  • Saute 2 pieces at a time in the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until browned, about 3-5 minutes. Turn and cook an additional 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining chicken.
  • Cook the mushrooms in the same pan over high heat—about 5 minutes or until they start to brown. Add additional oil if necessary to prevent scorching.
  • Deglaze the pan with the marsala wine and bring to a boil. Simmer until liquid is reduced by half-about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and add the prosciutto, sage and butter. Add any additional salt and pepper at this time.
  • Pour sauce over chicken and serve.


Substitute 1/2 tsp ground sage for the fresh. Add a tad more if you like a strong sage flavor.
Ham or bacon may be substituted for the prosciutto.
