Chef notes

Sal Scognamillo of Patsy's Italian Restaurant in New York City shares his perfect Chicken Marsala recipe.

Preparation

Bring a medium pot of water to a boil, add the mushrooms, blanch for 2 minutes, drain, and reserve.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high flame and sauté the chicken cutlets until browned on both sides, about 6 minutes total. Remove the chicken, cover lightly with aluminum foil, and keep warm. Reduce the heat to medium and sauté the onion for 2 to 3 minutes, or until soft.

Add the blanched mushrooms and continue to cook and stir for 3 minutes, or until mushrooms have browned.

Return the chicken to the skillet and add the wine, 1/3 cup of the beef broth, basil, butter, prosciutto (optional), and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, adding more broth if necessary.
