Chicken Lombardy Recipe
- Preheat the oven to 400*F.
- Cut chicken breasts in half lengthwise to make 4 long slices.
- Add salt, pepper, and garlic powder to the flour and shake or sift together.
- Coat each piece of chicken with flour.
- Heat the olive oil and 2 tablespoons of butter in an oven-proof skillet on medium-high.
- When the oil is sizzling, lay your chicken strips in the pan.
- Cook each side of the chicken for 4-5 minutes, or until the flour is golden.
- Transfer chicken to a paper towel to let the oil drain.
- Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter to the skillet and melt.
- Sauté mushrooms, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are brown (about 5-6 minutes).
- Add chicken broth and marsala to the skillet. Let the mixture bubble on medium-low for 5-10 minutes. Stir occasionally.
- Add the chicken strips back to the pan and spoon the sauce-mushroom mixture over the top. Cook for about one minute.
