{Chicken with Mustard Mascarpone Sauce}

I have tried a lot of Giada De Laurentiis recipes…This one has been one of our favorites, it’s one of those recipes that I save and make on special occasions like Valentines Day, my husbands birthday or even our Anniversary. It’s just a delicious and special recipe. It basically turns out as if you are eating at a really pricey Italian Restaurant, there is nothing better then good Italian food Mmm.

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, each cut into 3 pieces
Salt and pepper
2 Tbs olive oil
5 Tbs Butter
3/4 cup chopped onion
1 lb cremini mushrooms, sliced
2 Tbs minced garlic
1 Cup marsala wine
1 cup mascarpone cheese
2 Tbs dijon mustard
2 Tbs fresh parsley
1 Package fettuccine

Season chicken well with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the chicken and cook just until brown about 4 minutes on both sides. Transfer the chicken to a plate and let cool. Melt 2 Tbs butter in the same skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and saute, add mushrooms and garlic. Add wine and simmer about 5 minutes. Stir in cheese and mustard, return chicken to the skillet, simmer uncovered until the sauce thickens slightly. Stir in chopped parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Cook fettuccine until done about 8 minutes. Toss with 3 Tbs butter. Serve fettuccine onto serving plates. Spoon chicken mixture over top.
