In the skillet used to make the chicken, heat another 2 teaspoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Add in mushrooms and saute until soft, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add in garlic and cook 1 minute more. Pour in marsala wine and chicken broth Bring to a simmer and cook until liquid is reduced by half, about 6 to 7 minutes.

Reduce heat to low and add chicken back to the pan. Spoon some sauce and mushrooms over the top of the chicken breasts.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
*This recipe uses four thin chicken breasts. If your chicken breasts are large and thick, you can slice them in half lengthwise, turning two large chicken breasts into four.

FOR NON ALCOHOLIC:

You can either substitute the wine with 3/4 cup grape juice + 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, or 3/4 cup chicken broth + 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar.

MIX IT UP:

Use egg noodles instead of spaghetti, and pair it with fresh asparagus and mushrooms with olive oil, garlic, and parmesan cheese bake at 400 for 18 minutes. YUMM!!
