Chicken marsala is an Italian dish made with chicken fillets, mushrooms, and marsala wine. The chicken is coated in flour, briefly sautéed, and removed from the pan, which is then used to make a reduction of the marsala. The reduction gives the wine a syrup-like consistency, and the sauce is made by adding onions or chives, plus mushrooms, herbs, and possibly other ingredients. The sauce is poured over the chicken, which has been kept warm, and served immediately.
