Chicken Marsala

I LOVE chicken marsala... the tender chicken, the sweet savory mushrooms and sauce.. mmm... my mouth is watering just thinking about it.  I decided to try making it recently and it was just as delicious as I imagined it would be!  This recipe is super easy and delicious!

 4 boneless chicken breast halves without skin
 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
 1/2 teaspoon salt
 1/4 teaspoon pepper
 1/2 teaspoon basil, dried
 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
 3 tablespoons olive oil
 4 to 8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced (1/2 to 1 cup sliced)
 1/2 cup Marsala wine

Pound chicken to 1/4" thickness between 2 sheets of plastic wrap.
Combine flour, salt, pepper, and basil; mix well.
Heat oil and butter in a heavy non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Dredge chicken in seasoned flour mixture. Cook chicken until lightly browned on first side (about 2 to 3 minutes).
Turn chicken and add mushrooms around the chicken pieces. Cook about 2 minutes longer, until lightly browned; stir the mushrooms. Add Marsala wine to pan. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer 10 minutes.
You can serve this with rice, mashed potatoes or pasta. I chose whole grain pasta and cooked it to al dente, following the directions on the box.
Trust me, it tasted as good as it looked!!
