Olive Garden Stuffed Chicken Marsala

Cheese Stuffing:
1/2 cup smoked shredded cheese (provolone or gouda)
8-oz package mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1 tsp fresh garlic, minced
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, crushed
2 Tbsp sun-dried tomato, chopped (drain first if in oil)
1/3 cup green onions, thinly sliced
3/4 cup sour cream (6 oz)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Sauce:
1 small onion, cut in half and thinly sliced lengthwise
24 fl oz Marsala wine
8 fl oz heavy cream
2 small containers button mushrooms, thinly sliced (6 cups)
Salt and pepper to taste

2 lbs skinless, boneless chicken breasts
4 fl oz olive oil
2 cups all-purpose flour

Pre-heat oven to 350°F.

Combine all cheese stuffing ingredients in a mixing bowl.

Butterfly thickest section of chicken breasts to create 2 lobes. Pound each breast between 2 sheets of plastic wrap until ¼” – ½” thick.

Place flattened chicken breasts on a plate and place desired amount of stuffing on one lobe of each chicken breast. Gently press stuffing down so it resembles a hockey puck.

Fold over other lobe of chicken breast; does not have to seal.

Heat large sauté pan over medium heat.

Add olive oil and heat until shimmering.

Place flour in a shallow pan and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Dredge stuffed chicken breasts in flour, shaking off excess.

Saute chicken breasts with preheated oil, cooking until each side is golden brown.

Remove chicken from pan and place in a baking dish.

Bake for 10-20 minutes, or until juices run clean and center of chicken reaches 165°F.

Add onions to sauté pan, and stir to loosen chicken drippings. After 2 minutes, add mushrooms and sauté until onions are translucent.

Deglaze pan with Marsala wine – make sure to incorporate drippings from bottom of pan.

Heat wine to a simmer and add heavy cream. Simmer on low heat until reduced by half.

Place cooked chicken breasts on a plate and top each with onions, mushrooms and sauce.

Serves 4

Olive Garden Pizza Rustica

Posted by: ChefTom in Categories: Olive Garden, Recipes.

I recently picked up a ceramic pizza stone which allows you to get that perfect crust like your pizza just came out of a brick oven.  Today’s secret recipe is a great example of a recipe that comes out so much better when baked on a pizza stone.  Olive Gardens Pizza Rustica has a flavorful medley of toppings like eggplant, roasted garlic, prosciutto, pesto and of course mozzarella cheese.  You can certainly make this pizza on a metal baking pan, but if you want that pizzeria style crust, I suggest you get yourself a stone like this to bake it on.

This recipe calls for pesto sauce which you can purchase in a jar or you can make your own using this recipe from our forum: Go Here

Enjoy!

Olive Garden Pizza Rustica

7 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (approximately)
1 pk dry active yeast
2 1/2 cups water, warm (90-115ºF)
1/2 Tbsp +1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
All-purpose flour as needed
1 eggplant, peeled and cut into very thin slices
16 fresh garlic cloves
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
20 thin slices prosciutto ham
4 rounds fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into slices
4 tbsp of pesto (jarred)

Pre-heat oven to 350ºF.

PIZZA DOUGH:

Pour warm water into a bowl. Add yeast. Using a wire whip, whisk to completely dissolve yeast. Set aside for about 5 minutes, or until yeast activates. Add 1 cup flour, salt and extra virgin olive oil. Mix well. Add remaining flour 1 cup at a time until dough is soft and springy. Dough should turn into a ball. If dough is too dry, add a very small amount of water. If it becomes too wet, add a small amount of flour.

Place ball of dough on a floured board and cover with a dry towel. Allow to sit until ball doubles in size.

Cut risen dough into 4 equal pieces. Again, roll into balls and allow to rise*.

ROASTED GARLIC CLOVES:

Place garlic cloves in a small pan. Add 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil and evenly coat each clove..

Bake at 350ºF for 45 minutes. Remove and allow to cool.

PIZZA:

Place dough ball on floured board. Using hands, flatten and spread out to form a circle.

Slide pizza dough onto a pizza pan or parchment paper.

Place fresh mozzarella slices on pizza. Add sliced eggplant and roasted garlic cloves.

Bake at 550ºF for 5-6 minutes, or until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven and add prosciutto slices. Top with spoonfuls of pesto.

*If not using dough immediately, wrap each ball with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready for use. Once ready to use, remove from refrigerator and bring to room temperature.

Serves 4
