Scallopine with mushrooms and Marsala Wine
Scaloppine alla Marsala
cookbook: Lidia's Italian-American Kitchen
main ingredients: chicken
user comments (0)

serves: 4 servings


veal, chicken, turkey, or pork scallopine, for four
freshly ground pepper
all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons olive oil
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, (1 stick)
2 tablespoons shallots, finely chopped
3 cups mushroom, thinly sliced and trimmed
½ cup dry Marsala
1 cup chicken stock, or canned reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons fresh Italian parsley, chopped


Season both sides of the scallopine lightly with salt and pepper. Dredge the scallopine in flour to lightly coat both sides and tap off any excess flour.

Heat the olive oil and 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat the butter is foaming. Add as many of the scallopine as fit without touching and cook until golden brown on the underside, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook until the second side is lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Remove from the pan and repeat with the remaining scallopine, adding more oil to the pan and repeat with the remaining scallopine, adding more oil to the pan if necessary. Remove all scallopine from the pan when browned and drain on paper towels.

Drain the fat from the skillet and return the pan to the heat. Add 2 tablespoons of the remaining butter and, when it is melted, stir in the shallots. Cook, stirring, until wilted, about 3 minutes. Scatter the mushrooms into the pan, season them lightly with salt and pepper and cook until the mushrooms are lightly browned, about 4 minutes. (If the mushrooms begin to give off liquid, you'll have to wait for that to evaporate before the mushrooms begin to brown.)

Pour in the Marsala, bring it to a boil and cook until the Marsala is slightly syrupy, about 3 minutes.

Add the remaining 4 tablespoons butter and pour in 1 cup chicken stock. Bring to a vigorous boil and season lightly with salt and pepper. Boil until reduced by half, then tuck the scallopine into the sauce. Cook, turning the scallopine in the sauce, until the scallopine are heated through and the sauce is thickened enough to lightly coat them, about 3 minutes. If necessary, add small amounts of chicken stock as necessary to make enough sauce to generously coat the scallopine. Swirl in the parsley and serve on hot plates, dividing the scallopine among the plates and spooning some of the sauce and mushrooms over each serving.

Lidia's Italian American Kitchen

One of Lidia's most personal and instructive cookbooks, "Lidia’s Italian-American Kitchen", focuses on Lidia’s own experience in America, and her connection in Italian-American cuisine. It is the story of how Italian-American cooking is a cuisine born of adaptation and necessity, created by new immigrants who tried to recreate the flavors of their homeland using whatever American ingredients they had access to.
