Half-assed Chicken Marsala
4-6 chicken breasts
1/4 C flower
1 beaten egg
3 stalks celery chopped
a bunch of chopped mushrooms
handful of chopped nuts, pecans, walnuts etc
1/4 – 1/2 c chicken or beef broth
1/4 – 1/2 c marsala or red wine
You smash the chicken like no one’s looking. Saute the celery, ‘shrooms and nuts in a couple of Tbls of olive oil until tender. You decide at the last minute to add some fresh minced garlic and set things aside just like when you procrastinate.
Get the chicken messy in the egg and flower, mixing in some pepper and garlic. You brown that dirty bird in some buttah until it smells real good.
Throw the colorful stuff back into the mix and pour in the broth. That wine wants in there too. Reduce it down – you be the dom, it be the sub. Make it beg.
When are you going to salt and pepper to taste? When you get around to getting your act together. That’s when.
Shred some carrot on top too. Make it look pretty. Pretty stuff is entirely more fun to eat. You’ve always thought so.
