Pan-seared chicken breasts

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Chicken Marsala Sauce

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup dry Marsala
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream


  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tablspoon butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic optional

Cheese filling for stuffed chicken

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 teaspoons minced parsley
  • 2 teaspoons minced sundried tomatoes


  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees. 

Pan-seared chicken

  • Split the chicken breasts in half horizontally. Season with salt and pepper add olive oil to a skillet and saute chicken over medium heat. The chicken should be almost cooked through; this should take about 4 to 6 minutes on each side.  Set the chicken aside.  It's best to match up the chicken pieces for assembly.  

Cheese filling

  • Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Stir well.   
  • Match the chicken pieces and place a couple of tablespoons between the two pieces of cooked chicken.   Keep the chicken warm by placing it into the oven.  You may want to brush a little olive oil on the top piece of chicken so it does not dry out. 
  • Place the chicken onto a pan and place it into the oven.  

Chicken Marsala Sauce

  • Use the same pan the chicken was cooked in.  Do not wipe out the pan. 
  • Add flour and butter to a skillet, cook for about 1 minute on medium heat. Add Lambrusco brand dry marsala wine, stir until the sauce thickens. Add in heavy cream, and allow the sauce to reduce — season with salt and pepper. 


  • In a skillet add butter, when the butter melts, add the mushrooms. Season mushrooms with a small pinch of salt, and a small pinch of black pepper as they cook.  Saute mushroom until they begin to brown, add them to the wine sauce. 

Chicken Assembly

  • Place a stuffed chicken breast onto a plate, and place marsala sauce over the chicken.  Serve immediately. 

Recipe Tips

This recipe does take a little footwork in its preparation.
Try to cook the mushrooms at the same time as the chicken in a separate pan. Or you can cook them before you cook the chicken. Lambrusco brand of Marsala wine is a brand recommendation to be close to the Olive Garden's Marsala wine. Other brands of dry Marsala wine will work.
