Chicken escalope in sweet Italian Marsala and rosemary sauce is a dinner-party favourite!


Skinless chicken breast

880 g, (buy 4x250g breasts), fat trimmed

Oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)

Reduced fat oil spread

1 tbs


4 whole, thinly sliced

Plain flour

1 tbs

Chicken stock

1 cup(s), (250ml)

Fresh rosemary

1 tbs


250 ml


  1. Lightly spray a large non-stick frying with oil and heat over high heat. Cook chicken, in batches, for 1–2 minutes each side or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  2. Melt spread in same pan. Add eschalot and cook, stirring, for 3–4 minutes or until softened. Add flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in marsala and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Add stock and rosemary and simmer, uncovered, for 4–5 minutes or until sauce has slightly thickened. Serve chicken drizzled with sauce.


SERVING SUGGESTION: Steamed broccolini and baby carrots, plus steamed baby (chat) potatoes.TIP: To cut escalopes from chicken breasts, place your hand on top of the fillet to hold it in place and cut diagonally from top to bottom. You should get six 1cm-thick escalopes from each breast. Perfect with chicken or veal, this sweet Italian sauce has been a dinner-party favourite for decades.Marsala is a fortified Italian wine that is used in both sweet and savoury dishes. It is available from most liquor outlets.
