Menu Plan Monday (on Sunday)
Since I seem to be using my blog to organize and plan my life, I thought I'd contribute to Menu Plan Monday as well!
Monday: Wild Rice Chicken (make 2, freeze one)
Tuesday: Baked Ziti (going to try this new recipe)
Thursday: Chicken Marsala (if I can find Marsala wine) (see below)
Friday: Homemade pizza
Saturday: Hamburgers on grill
Sunday: Dinner at church
Chicken Marsala Recipe:
4 boneless chicken breast halves without skin
1/4 c all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp basil, dried
3 tbsp butter or margarine
3 tbsp olive oil
4 to 8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced (1/2 to 1 cup sliced)
1/2 c Marsala wine
Pound chicken to 1/4" thickness between 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Combine flour, salt, pepper, and basil; mix well. Heat oil and butter in a heavy non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Dredge chicken in seasoned flour mixture.
Cook chicken until lightly browned on first side (about 2 minutes). Turn chicken and add mushrooms around the chicken pieces. Cook about 2 minutes more, until lightly browned; stir. Add Marsala wine to pan. Cover and simmer 10 minutes. Serve with hot cooked pasta or rice.

addendum: got lots of comments on the Marsala Chicken. This is actually one of our regular recipes. I just haven't found Marsala wine in a couple of months, since our nearby Albertson's closed down. The three Walmarts I have checked don't have it. I am going to see if Reasor's has it, if not, I can send hubby to the Albertson's near him!
