  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 pounds chicken breast pounded thin
  • 4 tablespoons vegan butter substitute such as Earth Balance
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • 8 ounces mushrooms sliced
  • 5 tablespoons Marsala Wine divided
  • 2/3 cup chicken or beef stock


  1. Mix flour and pepper in a shallow dish . Dredge chicken pieces in flour mixture to coat.  Shake off excess.

  2. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons vegan butter substitute with the olive oil.  Add chicken and brown lightly, about 3 minutes per side. Do not crowd pan; cook in batches if necessary.  Remove from pan.

  3. Add onion and garlic to pan and saute until tender, 3-5 minutes.  Add mushrooms and cook until they are lightly browned, 5 minutes.

  4. Return chicken to pan without crowding.  Stir in 3 tablespoons of Marsala wine and stock.  Bring to a boil and simmer about 10 minutes.  If you have more chicken, remove first batch to a clean plate, and saute second batch. You do not need to add more wine or stock.

  5. When all of the chicken has been cooked, remove  it to a clean plate and whisk remaining vegan butter into pan drippings.  Add remaining two tablespoons of Marsala wine and scrape pan with a wooden spoon to stir up the browned bits.

  6. Pour remaining sauce in pan over chicken before serving.
