Ingredients

  • 5 Pounds Chicken Cutlets (or buy your own chicken breast and slice them thinly)
  • 1 10 Oz Package of Crimini Mushrooms
  • 1 Shallot, Chopped Small
  • 2 cup Marsala wine (or a sweet wine such as a Sherry)
  • ¼ Cup Chicken Stock

  3. Add chicken and saute on both sides until a nice crust develops.
  4. Remove the chicken and set aside on another plate.
