Before You Cook
To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:
- Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
- Seafood 145° F |
- Chicken 165° F |
- Ground Beef 160° F |
- Ground Turkey 165° F |
- Ground Pork 160° F
Prepare the Ingredients
Mince garlic. Cut mushrooms into very thin slices. Stem and coarsely chop parsley. Pat chicken breasts dry.
Dredge and Sear the Chicken
Place a medium non-stick pan with 1 tsp. olive oil over medium-high heat. Place flour on a plate. Season chicken on both sides with 1/2 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper and dip in flour, coating completely. Shake off excess and place chicken in hot pan. Cook until golden brown, 2-3 minutes per side.
Roast the Chicken
Transfer chicken to prepared baking sheet. Roast until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 6-8 minutes. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. While chicken roasts, cook pasta.
Cook the Pasta
Add pasta to boiling water and stir constantly, 30 seconds. Then cook until al dente, 8-10 minutes. Drain in a colander and return to pot. Toss with 1/2 tsp. olive oil to prevent sticking and set aside. While pasta cooks, make sauce.
Prepare the Sauce
Return pan used to sear chicken to medium heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and garlic and cook until aromatic, 1 minute. Add mushrooms and cook, 2-3 minutes. Add Marsala wine, chicken base, and 1/2 cup water and stir occasionally until liquid is reduced by half, 5-8 minutes. Remove from burner and stir in butter until fully incorporated.
Finish the Dish
Add a serving of pasta to a plate. Spoon Marsala sauce and mushrooms on top of pasta and garnish with parsley. Top with chicken and any accumulated juices. Alternatively, spoon sauce and mushrooms over chicken and pasta.
