Quick and Easy Creamy Chicken Marsala

Why is this a Foodgasm?

This meal is soooo simple I didn't even want to post it out of embarrassment!  I'm also not a big fan of using pre-made ingredients, BUT we are all busy people and sometimes we have to compromise from time to time, by not making everything completely from scratch. This dish is QUICK, EASY and LIGHT! Seriously, does it get any better?

My grandfather made the BEST chicken marsala when I was a kid. Seriously amazing!! BUT it took a while to make and it was not so healthy. Fried cutlets, smothered in a marsala wine sauce and covered in mozzarella and provolone cheese. Yup, serious foodgasm, but that bad boy was a one night stand. With this version this is the foodgasm you can marry- reliable, and kind to your waistline. So I took what I loved most about my grandfathers dish and made my own quick version of it for a weeknight. It is creamy and has lots of mushrooms and that great sweet marsala flavor!

I dredged my chicken in flour and spices, but if you want something quicker- there is no need to do it. It will be delicious regardless!
