My 21 Day Fix Chicken Marsala is absolutely delicious and I cannot wait to make it again! The next time I make it, I will be adding more mushrooms, for sure! They were so good! I will also be looking for a Marsala Cooking wine that is a little lower in sodium – it could be worse and this is why I don’t have you add any additional salt, unless you want it, to taste. Fun Fact about my family: I hardly EVER use salt in my recipes and if I do, it is not a lot. WHY? Because my husband salts EVERYTHING. He used to be A LOT worse with the amount of salt he used and is getting a lot better now, but he still does…ahhhhh…back to the task at hand!
This dish tastes incredibly rich and was very flavorful. If you want to only use one pan you can absolutely do this – I cooked the mushrooms/sauce first and the transferred it to a bowl so I could brown the chicken. Next time, I will just brown the chicken while the mushrooms are simmering away – one more pan isn’t going to take long to clean!
I served the chicken marsala with some asparagus and a baked potato for Basili – he requested mashed potatoes next time. haha!
- 1 T coconut oil
- 8oz Baby Bella mushrooms, sliced
- 1/4 cup shallots, finely diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 3/4 cup Marsala Wine
- 1 lb chicken breast, thin cut
- 1/4 cup wheat flour
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp oregano
- 2 T almond milk
- 1 t wheat flour
- 1 T coconut oil
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- Fresh Parsley, for garnish
- Cherry tomatoes, optional
- Sea Salt and Pepper, to taste
- In 12" skillet, heat coconut oil until melted. Saute mushrooms for 8-10 minutes.
- Add garlic, shallots & wine - let simmer gently until wine reduces (about 15 minutes), stir occasionally
- While simmering, combine chicken, 1/4 cup wheat flour. onion powder, garlic powder and oregano into a bowl or ziplock bag. Coat the chicken well, shake to remove excess.
- In a separate skillet, heat 1 T coconut oil and cook chicken until browned (a few minutes on each side)
- When chicken is cooked through, add mushrooms/sauce, almond milk and 1/2 cup chicken broth and let simmer. If using cherry tomatoes, let them simmer until soft.
- Serve with fresh parsley
- 1 Red, 1 Green, 1 tsp
- You will be discarding some of the flour mixture, so you will not be consuming the entire 1/4 cup of flour - this is about 1/2 yellow and then you would divide that by 4 and then it is even less than that, the point is, if you WANT to count it, go ahead, but I'm not going to.
YES!! Chicken Marsala is one of my all-time favorite dishes, can’t wait to make this 🙂
Yay Stephanie! Thank you – me too! I am honored to see YOU on my site. 🙂
Let me know what you think of the Marsala!
I’m making this now. The ingredients call for almond milk but the instructions do not have it. Where is the almond milk suppose to go?
Sorry about that Carolyn! Adding it in now! Add the milk in step 5. 🙂
What is the tsp flour for after the almond milk?
Hi Harmony! 🙂 The flour is used as a thickening agent for the sauce. 🙂
Don’t laugh but at what point do I add the tsp of flour? Do I just add it to the almond milk in step 5? Or do I add it at the very end after everything has been added together?
Can’t wait to try this! What portion size did you use to make it 1 green 1 red and 1 tsp for 21 day fix?
Thanks Meg! I hope you love it as much as we did! To answer your question, the recipe calls for 1 pound of chicken, so you are going to use 4 oz for your red, fill a green container with the veggies, if it is not all the way full, then add some more veggies on the side!!) and the tsp is for the coconut oil that was used. 🙂 I hope that helps! Enjoy!
How did you prepare/season the asparagus?
Hi Jessica! I trim and wash the asparagus. Toss in a little olive oil and minced garlic. Spread out on baking sheet. Sprinkle with some freshly ground black pepper and roast in a 425 degree oven for about 20 minutes. 🙂 Easy peasy! 🙂 Spritz it with a little bit of lemon juice for some added flavor when they are out of the oven! 🙂 Enjoy! Angela
Chicken Marsala is one of my favorite dishes. I only use 1 Pan through. I cook the chicken and remove. Then cook the mushrooms shallots, deglaze with wine and add the stock. Also use cornstarch vs flour to thicken instead.
Thanks Jen! I will have to try that next time! 🙂 Angela
I just made this for dinner tonight and it was very tasty! Both the hubs and the kiddo really enjoyed it.
Thank you for telling me! So happy you enjoyed it! 🙂
My husband and I are doing the 21 day fix together. He’s Greek, too, so we were drawn to your recipes since you mentioned your hubby’s passion for great food. We tried the Marsala tonight and loved it. We are so glad we made enough for two meals! Thanks and keep up with posting the great recipes (we also LOVE the steak and cheese peppers!!)
Thank you Susan! 🙂 That is SO awesome – it is so much fun when your spouse is on board with you! 🙂 I am SO happy you are enjoying my recipes and thank you for putting a smile on my face! 🙂 Angela
This was fantastic! My daughter helped make it and the whole family loved it! My husband was hesitant since he loves his marsala which is covered in butter but he was very surprised and enjoyed it a lot!!!!
I LOVE hearing this! Thank you for letting me know! xoxo!
I made this tonight – it was wonderful!!! Hubby liked it too. Thanks so much for sharing your recipes.
Thank you! I am so happy you enjoyed it! 🙂
Do you know how many calories are in this meal. I am doing the 21 day fix but also keeping track of calories on my fit bit. Also, can you use almond flour instead of wheat flour?
I am not sure how many calories there are. The almond flour will be more grainy, but you could use it – it is only used to help thicken the marsala sauce. 🙂
I’m excited to try this but was wondering if I could substitute another vegetable for the mushrooms? Or does that change the recipe completely? We have family members who can’t eat mushrooms.
I would think you can! Traditionally, chicken marsala is made with mushrooms, but I would think you could saute up some thinly slice zucchini! 🙂
Thank you so much for the inspiration to make this dish and have it be HEALTHY and DELICIOUS! I didn’t have any Marsala wine so I used Sherry and it turned out great. Paired it with the oven roasted asparagus and a glass of chardonnay, Perfection! I did use just one pan (cooking the chicken first…I’m all about fewer dishes + it adds flavor!)DH and 4 kiddos loved it! Love your recipes, thanks for sharing. I am making your cajun shrimp recipe tomorrow. I might be dreaming about it tonight lol.
I am so happy you loved it! That SOUNDS delicious!! 🙂
We made this last night – DELICIOUS!! My husband and I loved it, and my son (who ate just the plain chicken without the sauce) said it was the best chicken he’d ever had. I just started my second round of 21 Day Fix and am so glad I found your recipes! Thank you so much!
You are so very welcome! Sounds like you are on the right track heading for success! 🙂
This looks excellent!
Thank you! 🙂
is there a way to make this by substituting the marsala wine? (may be a silly question) it’s the only ingredient I don’t have in the house.
Good question! I just read you can make a non-alcoholic substitute! 1/4 cup of white grape juice, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract, 2 tablespoons of sherry vinegar
Umm all I have is vanilla unsweetened almond milk. Probably a no-go right?
I usually just use the regular unsweetened almond milk. 🙂
Hey! I am starting the 21DF tomorrow and meal planning now. A little (A LOT) overwhelmed with planning and figuring it all out. Is the green container you used including the side of asparagus? Thanks!
No – that is an additional green container! 🙂 Good luck with the Fix! How is it going so far?
This looks fantastic. Just a suggestion though, if you’re looking for a lower sodium Marsala, skip the cooking section and get the real thing. They add salt to cooking wines so they can sell it without a liquor license.
Just stumbled on your recipes. All sound wonderful! But…..what is 21 fix?
I hope you enjoy them! 🙂 The 21 Day Fix is a fitness and nutrition program centered around 30 minutes of fitness and portion controlled clean nutrition for 21 days. It has changed my life!
