For a wonderful chicken marsala recipe, easy and quick to make, try this: In a shallow bowl, mix together ¼ cup all purpose flour, ½ tsp salt, ¼ tsp ground black pepper and ½ tsp dried oregano.

In a large, hot skillet melt 4 tbsp of butter and 4 tbsp olive oil together. When melted, brown the chicken pieces. When chicken is brown on both sides, add 1 cup of sliced mushrooms.

Stir together and sit aside.

Next step in the stuffed chicken marsala recipe is to prepare the chicken. Take 2 lbs of boneless, skinless chicken breast and butterfly them. Pound them to about ¼ to ½ inch thick. Add a bit of stuffing equally to the chicken breasts and fold the chicken back over. Prepare a skillet add 4 oz of olive oil until sizzling. While that is heating, in another bowl mix 2 cups of flour and salt and pepper to taste. Coat chicken with flour mixture and sauté in oil until brown.
