Dinner in 15 minutes? It can be done, with this super-simple but delicious chicken recipe. For the side dishes, cook some pasta on the stove top and steam some veggies in the microwave while you are cooking the chicken, and BINGO! you have a whole meal the family can sit down and enjoy (before you all dash out of the house for the evening activities!). Quick and easy!
In the recipe instructions, there is a step for ‘deglazing the pan’. If you are like me and not a whiz in the kitchen, you might not know exactly what that means. I had to look it up! It simply means adding a liquid to the cooking pan and using it to scrape up the cooked-on bits stuck to the bottom of the pan.
Those bits have a lot of flavor and can be used to make a gravy or sauce for whatever meat you cooked. In this case, the broth and marsala wine combine with the juices and bits and result in a really tasty addition to the chicken!
I am sorry this post is a little short, but I am trying to finish up my last class. I started a certificate program back in the fall and I am happy to say that I am almost done! It will be a relief to get the schoolwork off my to-do list! But I am glad that I did it.
Without further ado, here is the recipe!
Adapted from 10 Minute Chicken by Rachael Ray. (It took me 15 minutes, so I changed the name, haha!)
Quicky ChickyPrint Recipe
- 4 chicken cutlets
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/3 cup flour
- 3 tablespoons butter (Brummel & Brown buttery spread will work too)
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 1/4 cup marsala wine
- Season the chicken with the salt and pepper.
- Coat the chicken with flour.
- Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat, then add the chicken cutlets.
- Cook until done, about 3 minutes on each side.
- Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.
- Deglaze the pan with the chicken broth and wine (that is, pour them into the skillet, and boil while scraping the bottom of the pan).
- Once the mixture in the skillet has thickened, distribute the sauce over the chicken and serve. (If you prefer thicker sauce, dissolve some flour in water and then slowly add a little at a time to the liquid in the pan while cooking, until it reaches the desired thickness)
Thing 2 rating = (4 out of 5 biscuits). We will definitely be having this dish again!!
