  • 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breast cutlets (thinly sliced chicken breast)
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup, not diluted
  • ½ cup dry Marsala wine
  • 2 teaspoons minced or pressed fresh garlic
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme, stems removed
  • Kosher salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • For garnish: chopped fresh parsley, basil, or thyme


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease a large, shallow baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Season chicken with salt and pepper on both sides and place in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle mushrooms on top.
  • In a separate bowl or measuring cup, whisk together condensed soup, Marsala wine, garlic, thyme leaves, salt, and pepper.
  • Pour sauce over chicken.
  • Bake, uncovered, for about 30 minutes (or until chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165°F). The cooking time will vary depending on the size and thickness of your chicken.
  • Garnish with additional fresh herbs just before serving.


  • Can't find chicken cutlets or thinly-sliced chicken breasts at the store? Buy regular chicken breasts, slice them in half lengthwise, and then pound them to an even ¼-inch thickness.
  • I prefer sliced "baby bella" mushrooms for this recipe, but white mushrooms will also work.
  • The total baking time will vary depending on the size and thickness of your chicken, as well as the type of dish that you use. As a result, a meat thermometer is the best way to know when your chicken is cooked perfectly. It's done when it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F, so don't overcook the chicken or it will come out tough or dry.
  • Garnish with chopped fresh parsley, thyme, or basil for a bright, flavorful finishing touch.
  • Cooking Just for Two? Cut the ingredients in half and bake the chicken in an 8-inch or 9-inch square dish.
  • Don't have any Marsala wine? You can substitute with an equal amount of sherry, brandy or dry white wine. For an alcohol-free version, use chicken broth.
  • For a truly creamy Chicken Marsala recipe, add a splash of heavy cream to the sauce after the dish is done baking.
