Bow Ties with Chicken Marsala Sauce



3 or 4 boneless chicken breast sliced in thin medallion style pieces, pan fried in olive oil or butter with a tablespoon of garlic around 3 to 4 minutes on each side just until till pink is gone and juices run clear in chicken, set aside keeping warm
1 cup dry Marsala wine
1 stick butter
Pinch of salt
Pinch of black pepper
1 lb bow tie pasta or your favorite pasta of choice, boiled to package instructions, drain.  Set aside keeping warm.
1 lb package of fresh mushrooms cleaned, rinsed well and sauteed in olive oil and 2 cloves of minced garlic.
grating cheese
red pepper flakes

In a large fry pan, saute mushrooms with 1 tablespoon olive oil and 2 cloves of minced garlic until soft and fragrant.  Add Marsala wine, salt and pepper to a hot pan; reduce wine by 50 percent. Add a few tablespoons at a time of butter until sauce is creamy. Toss pasta with half the sauce and add the rest of the sauce with mushrooms and grilled chicken. Serve with grating cheese and red pepper flakes.

After using orzo with our pork marsala the other day I know this works well and I like the idea of cuting up the meat and making it into a pasta sauce.

I haven't made a Marsala sauce in quite awhile. This is a delicious reminder.

I love Chicken Marsala, make it similar to yours, but with a little added cream.

Delicious. We had bow ties with shrimp and gorgonzola last night. It was a bit light on the gorgo but then I'm such a cheese lover.

We make chicken Marsala often, but never thought of serving it with pasta. I still have Marsala wine in the fridge. I know what I'll be making soon.

My daughter loves chicken Marsala. She comes in town for spring break soon and I'm going to make this for her. She'll love it. Thanks for the recipe.
