Last night we had a girls night + babies. It’s always fun to hang out with my friends, chat, eat some good food, and now watch the kids play and run around.
It’s much easier to get together with my friends at someone’s house instead of a restaurant because they kids are able to entertain each other and they aren’t forced to sit in a chair for more then an hour! It works out for all of us.
A few weeks ago I had mentioned that I love Chicken Marsala. Actually I love when my mom makes it and I get the leftovers, because clearly moms make the best dinners!
I attempted to make my own using Rice Flour, I’m not Gluten Free but ironically that’s the only type of flour we had in our house at the time, so I went with it. I’m not against white or wheat flour, I actually enjoy all different types of flour but in moderation.
If you want to replace the Rice Flour with your choice of flour I think the recipe would still turn out healthy & tasty!
CHICKEN MARSALA RECIPE
2 Boneless Chicken Breasts (about 1 lb)
1/2 cup Rice Flour
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
1 tbsp Whipped Butter
1/2 Cup Marsala Wine
1/4 Cup White Wine
1/4 Chicken Stock
2 tbsp Whole Milk (mixed with 1 tbsp Rice Flour)
1 teaspoon dried Parsley or 1 Tbsp chopped Fresh Parsley
Salt & Pepper
- Cut Chicken breast into 4 pieces. Place plastic wrap over them and pound each one to about an inch thick.
- Place Flour on a plate and dredge each piece of chicken in it. Sprinkle with salt, pepper & parsley.
- Heat Oil over medium heat and once oil is hot, fry each piece of chicken for about 3-4 minutes on each side (until golden brown). Remove chicken and place them on a plate.
- Reduce heat to medium and add butter & mushrooms.
- Salute for 4-5 minutes. Add both wines, milk, & chicken stock. Let cook for 4 more minutes. Return the chicken to the pan and reduce the heat to low. Mix all the ingredients well.
- Serve with potatoes, broccoli or salad!
I love the fact that I was able to put a healthier twist on the chicken marsala recipe without sacrificing flavors.
You don’t need a ton of cream, milk, butter, oil to make a recipe taste good, but I do believe that you need some!
Have you ever tried cooking with Rice Flour? Did you notice a difference in taste?
