Hey folks it is barry here welcome to my virgin
kitchen, now one of the most googled recipes of last year was something called chicken
marsala, ok not chicken masala which I had heard of more, like a curry kind of vibe this
is marsala which uses marsala wine. Basically this stuff and for a change I am not going
to drink it on camera today but it adds a really nice flavourful sweet vibe in there
and with it being the fat boy slimming month this is a slightly lighter version of it it
is the first time I have discovered this recipe first time I have tried it and absolutely
love it, mrs barry raved about it and pretty darn good for you as the original had cream
in it and we have just omitted that so if you want to have a go the full recipe and
steps are at my virgin kitchen .com but this is how you do it.
We are going to use some chicken today and I opted for chicken breast but of course you
could use chicken thigh, they are obviously quite thick at first so what we are going
to do is bash them between greaseproof paper with a rolling pin to get it nice and thin
and even it is quite a soothing task. Get yourself a bowl of flour, season it with
salt and pepper also add in some garlic powder, oregano and thyme, just give that a little
mix around to season now that flour my friends was not just any flour I get a lot of people
asking for gluten free recipes that was gluten free flour how cool is that and to me it did
not seem any different when I made the recipe. So we have some sliced onions and mushrooms
here and again I am just loving using my gadgets to make things easier but all we are going
to do is use some spray oil in a pan a lot of you have suggested using spray oil so I
have done that and added in the onions and mushrooms you just want to fry that up so
it starts to wilt and smell really good so the onions give way and the mushrooms shrivel
up smelling stonking in your kitchen. So from that pan for the moment remove the
mushrooms and the onions, then you are going to dunk the pieces of chicken into that seasoned
flour get it nice and coated just shake off any excess.
Using the same pan a bit more spray oil put the chicken in there and cook until browned
both sides looking gorgeous, once that is done, remove from the pan. I do not know about you but I love one pan
recipes, there seems to be some sort of laziness about it and it seems to make sense with this
recipe in particular so what we do with that same pan is add in the stock and the marsala
wine, do not be afraid to scrape up some of those flavours over the low flame you know
from the chicken and the vegetables that we cooked before and then what we do is lay in
the chicken breasts we have cooked and return the onions and mushrooms now this is my favourite
scenes from the whole video, it is just simmering those flavours down, oh my gosh you just want
to reduce it down until all absorbed into those other ingredients in the pan looking
so good. Then it is just a case of serving it up so
I just piled it on a plate with some kale, rice and an extra sprinkling of coriander
on top, visually it does not look like the best recipe ever, but I promise you it tasted
phenomenal. I loved it. Oh my gosh that chicken is so soft and gorgeous
and we have not put any cream in it, no wonder this recipe was one of the most popular of
2016, I am had not heard of it before but it is gorgeous give it a go. There we are then another lighter recipe for
you to get involved in particularly if you are getting involved in the fat boy slimming
month, I do not know about you but I am feeling pretty darn good, it has only been a week
