Marsala Crab-Stuffed Chicken Breasts Recipe
Holiday dinners in my youth meant Mom would be serving these stuffed chicken breasts. They’re now part of my own family’s Christmas Eve custom.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. Cook: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings
- 4 tablespoons butter, divided
- 2 teaspoons plus 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2 cans (6 ounces each) lump crabmeat, drained
- 2/3 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
- 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 3/4 cup Marsala wine
- 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1. In a small saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Stir in 2 teaspoons flour, salt and pepper until smooth; gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in the crab, mushrooms and Parmesan cheese.
- 2. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. Top each piece with 3 tablespoons crab mixture. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side; tie with kitchen string.
- 3. In a shallow bowl, combine paprika and remaining flour. Add chicken rolls, one at a time, and turn to coat. In a large skillet, brown chicken in remaining butter on all sides.
- 4. Add wine. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 170°.
- 5. Remove chicken and keep warm. In a small bowl, combine flour and bouillon; stir in water until blended. Stir into cooking juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Cut string off chicken rolls; serve with sauce. Yield: 6 servings.
