Jennifer Puskas, LCSW, ACS, Pathways Director at CHCC, submitted Chicken Marsala, which would be an ideal Valentine’s Day dinner. Pound four chicken breasts flat and slice one Portobello mushroom cap and a 10 oz. package of white mushrooms. Pour one cup of flour on a MORE Valentine’s Day … Page 2 plate to dredge the chicken, mixing in a tablespoon of basil and a tablespoon of oregano, one teaspoon of salt, and ¼ teaspoon of pepper. Melt four tablespoons of butter in a large skillet and four tablespoons of olive oil. Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture shaking off any excess. Brown the chicken until it is 2/3 of the way cooked on both sides. Add mushrooms and stir. Combine ½ cup Holland House Marsala wine, ¼ cup Holland House cooking sherry, and ¼ cup Holland House cooking wine with lemon. Add a fork full of cornstarch to wines, stirring out the lumps.

Serve with steamed broccoli and stove top stuffing.
