Marsala Chicken

Marsala chicken is a famous Italian dish in which it consists of lightly floured chicken with a sweet and delicious and sliced mushrooms. Marsala wine are not hard to find, it should be found in the Italian wine section. I received a bottle of marsala wine from one of my professor after giving a talk about my research at my old school. You can add some shallots or even some pancetta. It is important to reduce the sauce until it becomes slightly thick. If not, just add a little bit of flour. My recipe is very basic, I'm pretty sure there are fancier version of marsala chicken out there.
