Simple and delicious slow cooker chicken marsala, lightly coated chicken breasts slow cooked with with Marsala wine and mushrooms, is easy enough for a weeknight dinner, and impressive enough to serve to company.
3/4cupMarsala wine (Note: The recipe didn't specify whether to use dry or sweet marsala. Betty Crocker suggests sweet marsala, but I inadvertently used dry. Several commenters have complained that the flavor of the wine was overpowering for them. If in doubt, I would use 1/2 cup chicken broth and 1/4 cup marsala instead.)
2teaspoonschopped parsley, for garnish, optional
Ideal slow cooker size: 4-Quart.
Coat slow cooker insert with nonstick cooking spray. Combine the olive oil, shallot and garlic in bottom of slow cooker.
In a shallow dish stir together the flour, salt and black pepper. Pound the chicken to an even thickness and coat it with the flour mixture and add to the slow cooker. Scatter mushrooms over chicken and add the Marsala.
Cover and cook on LOW for 4 hours or until the chicken is tender.
To thicken the sauce, turn the slow cooker up to HIGH. Combine the cornstarch with 2 teaspoons water and stir it into the chicken mixture. Cover and cook until the sauce has thickened 10 to 25 minutes.
Stir in parsley. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve.
