Here is a simple and delicious chicken Marsala recipe.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup uncooked white rice
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 pinch dried oregano to taste
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken cutlets, pounded to 1/4-inch thickness
  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup Marsala wine
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock

Preparation

Bring the rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Set rice aside. In a large bowl, whisk the flour with salt, black pepper, and oregano. Gently press the chicken breasts into the flour mixture to coat, and shake off the excess flour.

Heat the olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Arrange the chicken in the skillet and cook until the chicken is no longer pink inside and golden brown outside, 5 to 8 minutes per side. Drain the cooked chicken on a paper towel-lined plate.

Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in the same skillet over medium heat while scraping up any brown bits with a spoon. Stir in the garlic; cook and stir until fragrant. Add the mushrooms, and cook and stir until they are tender and have released their liquid, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper, then stir in the Marsala wine and chicken stock.

Transfer the chicken back to the skillet, and spoon sauce over chicken pieces. Increase heat to medium-high, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the the sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes more. Serve the chicken and sauce over the cooked rice.

Food Health

Diet and health are important in our modern lifestyle. Taking diet does not mean that you have to ignore your healthy food. Try these nutritious foods that helps in diet plan.

Avocados

A typical serving of avocado (100 g) is moderate to rich in several B vitamins and vitamin K, with good content of vitamin C, vitamin E and potassium (right table, USDA nutrient data). Avocados also contain phytosterols and carotenoids, such as lutein and zeaxanthin. People who eat avocados tend to have lower BMI, body weight and waist circumference than people who skip this green superfood, per a study in Nutrition Journal. Though Avocados are higher in calories than other fruits and vegetables, their satisfying fat and fiber combo may help you slim down.

Eggs

Eggs are among the healthiest foods you can eat. They are rich in high-quality protein, healthy fats and many essential vitamins and minerals. Eating a high-protein breakfast promotes weight loss, because protein increases satiety while regulating hunger and appetite hormones, helping fend off your hunger until lunchtime.

Beans

Beans are high in protein, complex carbohydrates, folate, and iron.[25] Beans also have significant amounts of fiber and soluble fiber, with one cup[clarification needed] of cooked beans providing between nine and 13 grams of fiber. Fiber contained food helps you feel fuller longer, thus controlling hunger and helps in dieting.

Yogurt

Yogurt is protein-packed and full of probiotics, which are good for health and may helps in weight-loss. Yogurt (plain yogurt from whole milk) is 81% water, 9% protein, 5% fat, and 4% carbohydrates, including 4% sugars (table). A 100-gram amount provides 406 kilojoules (97 kcal) of dietary energy.

Leafy Greens

Leaf vegetables are typically low in calories and fat, and high in protein per calorie, dietary fiber, vitamin C, pro-vitamin A carotenoids, folate, manganese and vitamin K. If leaves are cooked for food, they may be referred to as boiled greens. Leaf vegetables may be stir-fried, stewed, steamed, or consumed raw. Leaf vegetables contain many typical plant nutrients, but since they are photosynthetic tissues, their vitamin K levels are particularly notable. Phylloquinone, the most common form of the vitamin, is directly involved in photosynthesis. This causes leaf vegetables to be the primary food class that interacts significantly with the anticoagulant warfarin.

Nuts

Nuts are the source of energy and nutrients for the new plant. They contain a relatively large quantity of calories, essential unsaturated and monounsaturated fats including linoleic acid and linolenic acid, vitamins, and essential amino acids. People who eat nuts may have lower risk for some diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Consumption of nuts helps in decreasing hunger and hence helps in dieting.
