Chicken Marsala Bake

Chicken Marsala is a big favorite around our house – mushrooms swimming in a creamy pool of a robust marsala wine based sauce topped over juicy flour breaded chicken– this recipe calls for throwing all the ingredients in one dish and baking – simple as that! This recipe is quick, make ahead friendly and totally delicious. Serve with a side of steamed string beans and you’re sure to want seconds.


A 9” x 13” Baking Dish

Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder

Olive Oil




(2) Boneless / Skinless Chicken Breasts

(1) Cup Long Grain Wild Rice – Un Cooked

(1) Container of Pre-Cleaned White Mushrooms

(1) Cups Marsala Wine

16oz Heavy Cream

Bread Crumbs

Parmesan Cheese


– Prep baking dish with cooking spray.

– Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.

– Boil chicken breasts in water seasoned with salt.

*Once cooked through set off to the side to cool.

*While chicken is boiling you can make the marsala sauce.

Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a sauce pan.

– Throw in the mushrooms and brown till cooked through.

– Now add in two tablespoons of flour and mix.

– Next add in the marsala wine and then the heavy cream and combine.

– Also throw in the chopped parsley.

– The sauce should thicken up due to the flour.

– Once thickened turn off the sauce.

– Shred the cooled chicken.

– Sprinkle the uncooked rice into the bottom of the baking dish till covered.

– Next layer will be the shredded chicken.

– Now top everything with the marsala sauce.

*Be sure to get the sauce into all the areas – having the rice submerged in the sauce will help it cook.

– Finally top the whole thing with a sprinkle of bread crumbs and parmesan cheese.

– Bake covered at 375 degrees for 20 minutes and then uncovered for another 5 minutes.

– Plate and serve with vegetable side.
