HG's Hungry-licious Chicken Marsala for Two

Holla for Marsala!

Another classic dish zapped by HG's magic wand, and the results are INSANE (in a good way, of course). Happy Valentine's Day!

1 tbsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown)
1/2 cup fat-free chicken broth
1/4 cup marsala wine
1 tsp. cornstarch
1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms
Two 5-oz. raw boneless skinless chicken breast cutlets, pounded to 1/2-inch thickness
1/4 tsp. each salt and black pepper
1/4 tsp. dried basil

In a small microwave-safe bowl, microwave butter for 10 seconds, or until melted.

In a medium bowl, whisk melted butter, broth, wine, and cornstarch until cornstarch has dissolved.

Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Cook and stir mushrooms until softened, 5 - 7 minutes.

Move mushrooms to the sides of the skillet. Season chicken with salt, pepper, and basil, and lay in the center of the skillet. Cook for 4 minutes, stirring mushrooms occasionally.

Flip chicken. Give broth mixture a stir and add to the skillet. Stirring mushrooms occasionally, cook until sauce has thickened and chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes. Serve it and love it!
