  • DifficultyEasy
680g boneless skinless chicken breasts, each breast cut crosswise into 3 pieces
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
5 tbsp butter, divided
180ml chopped onion
450g cremini mushrooms, sliced
2 tsp minced garlic
240ml dry Marsala wine
225g mascarpone cheese
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves, plus whole sprigs, for garnish
340g dried fettuccine
1) Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a heavy large frying pan over high heat. Add the chicken and cook just until brown, about four minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to a plate and cool slightly.

2) While the chicken cools, melt two tablespoons of butter to the same skillet over medium-high heat, then add the onion and saute until tender, about two minutes.

3) Add the mushrooms and garlic and saute until the mushrooms are tender and the juices evaporate, about 12 minutes. Add the wine and simmer until it is reduced by half, about four minutes.

4) Stir in the mascarpone and mustard. Cut the chicken breasts crosswise into 1cm-thick slices. Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the skillet. Simmer, uncovered, over medium-low heat until the chicken is just cooked through and the sauce thickens slightly, about two minutes.

5) Stir in the chopped parsley. Season the sauce, to taste, with salt and pepper.

6) Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the fettuccine and cook until al dente, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Drain. Toss the fettuccine with three tablespoons of butter and season, to taste, with salt and pepper.

7) Swirl the fettuccine onto serving plates. Spoon the chicken mixture over top. Garnish with parsley sprigs and serve.
