Light healthy Chicken Marsala Recipe with Tomatoes and Basil. A fresh and fragrant meal with a tangy pop of cherry tomatoes to brighten the sauce!
It can be difficult to cook comforting meals for cold weather, that don’t load you down on fat and calories. I’ve found myself making large quantities of soup this winter, with the express purpose of lessening the carb-load while warming our tummies.
However, soup gets old after a while, no matter how tasty it is.
Chicken Marsala is a cozy dish that often teeters on the edge of healthy.
It’s true, when you order a Chicken Marsala Recipe at a restaurant, it’s usually weighted down with masses of butter and wine. However, this lighter version offers a fresh perspective on what Chicken Marsala can be. With notes of herbs and juicy tomatoes to accentuate the deep earthy quality of the wine soaked mushrooms, this Chicken Marsala Recipe is a welcomed change.
I started by sautéing chicken cutlets in a scant amount of oil and butter. A light dusting of flour give the chicken a golden crust. Either use regular all purpose flour, or substitute gluten free baking mix.
Then I mixed blistered cherry tomatoes, with the classic mushrooms bathed in marsala wine. Finally I tossed in fresh parsley and basil.
The tangy note of the tomatoes and sweet aromatic basil, give this chicken marsala recipe a touch of contrast and intrigue.
You’ll never miss the extra fat. Truly you won’t.
And you won’t miss the after-dinner bloat either.
What you can’t miss, is these darling Q Squared NYC dinnerware I’m serving the Chicken Marsala Recipe on!
