Chicken Marsala is an iconic Italian-American dish that has its roots in Sicily. It was thought to have been created by Italian immigrants trying to recreate the flavors of their homeland but lacked the essential ingredients, so it’s not entirely authentic to Italy.

Even so, the dish is highly sought after. It consists of crispy pan-fried chicken with succulent mushrooms doused in a savory sauce. And although it’s a classic restaurant dish, it’s super easy to make at home.

TikToker Giada De Laurentiis (@thegiadzy) has a recipe for chicken Marsala that she’s keeping gluten and dairy-free. Instead of using all-purpose flour and butter, replace them with rice flour and olive oil.

It’s a doable after-work dinner, perfect for the working woman or anyone who doesn’t like doing dishes.

With just one pan, you can have it on the dinner table in thirty minutes, all while reducing the number of dirty dishes in your sink. So, of course, clean-up will be a breeze! Here’s how to get started on the chicken Marsala.


  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup of rice flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons of kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 shallots
  • 2 to 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh thyme
  • 5 ounces of mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup of sweet Marsala
  • 1/2 cup of low-sodium chicken broth


Cook the halved chicken cutlets in rice flour, then sear them in a skillet until golden brown. When they’re golden brown, remove the chicken and set it aside. In the same pan, sauté the shallots and garlic.
