How to Make Quick and Easy Chicken Recipe
First, lightly flour the chicken.
Time to get sizzling! On high heat, drizzle olive oil into a large saucepan. Place your chicken in the pan and get it golden brown. Sprinkle salt, pepper, garlic powder, and ground sage evenly to add that flavor.
Once the chicken has developed into a nice color, remove from heat and set aside on a separate plate. Be sure to keep the pan on the stovetop because you are still going to need it! Next, melt the butter in the same pan and saute sliced onions.
Then add the sliced mushrooms, and minced garlic, and onions are translucent.
Here's a pro tip for you: Deglaze your pan using marsala wine! Swirl around the wine in the pan and gently scrape the sides of it to get all of the browned bits off. This will form a nice, flavorful sauce for the chicken and adds even more flavor! Plus, it helps with cleanup later.
Then, whisk in the chicken stock and Greek yogurt until mixed thoroughly.
Time to give some meat to this easy chicken marsala recipe! Add back the chicken into the pan along with green beans. Cook over high heat until the liquid thickens. Enjoy warm over rice, pasta, or by itself.
