The Delicious Chicken Modiga Recipe 

The Delicious chicken Modiga recipe is one yummy recipe you need to try; its wonderful Italian sauce makes it stand out from many other recipes.

This recipe of delicious chicken Modiga is a perfect Italian recipe that was given to us by my friend and colleague of the same name.

Modiga’s history goes back to the Middle Ages in Italy when the people started cooking chicken with different sauces like this Italian sauce which was created during the renaissance period. This is not a very common recipe as it is only found in some parts of Italy, and it was only known to a few people.

The traditional way of preparing this sauce was to make a small cut in the chicken breast and pour the sauce into the cut. But the best way of preparing this sauce is to put the sauce in a bowl and cook the chicken on a pan until cooked thoroughly, then take it off and serve. This way is better for two reasons:

  • It saves time
  • You get to enjoy the sauce with the chicken.

So if you are thinking of trying this recipe, we suggest you follow the instructions below, and you will definitely enjoy the dish.

Chicken Modiga Recipe Mushrooms

Ingredients

  • Chicken Breasts, 4-6 hammered thin – you can replace chicken with steak if you like.
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Panko bread crumbs
  • Cloves of Garlic, minced
  • Cup Butter divided, 3/4
  • Half pound mushrooms, sliced
  • Frozen peas, 1 cup
  • Dried Mushroom or chicken broth
  • Heavy cooking cream, 1 cup
  • Marsala wine, 1/4 cup
  • Flour, 2 tablespoons
  • Shredded provel cheese, 1/2 cup

Method

  1. Add two cups of water to the dried porcini mushrooms and boil them for a few minutes to produce an excellent mushroom broth. You can use chicken stock instead.
  2. Prepare the garlic-infused olive oil blend by adding the minced garlic to half a cup of olive oil. This will infuse nicely, giving you a perfect flavor. Set it aside.
  3. Place the chicken in a ziplock and hammer the chicken breasts to make them thinner with a thickness of about 1/2 inch. Add about 3 tbsps of oil and salt to the bag and coat the chicken breasts with bread crumbs.
  4. Heat your pan on medium heat and add two tablespoons of olive oil and one teaspoon of butter into the pan.
  5. Place the pounded chicken on the pan and fry it until it turns brown on both sides. Remove it and keep it in the oven.
  6. In a different pan, mix one tablespoon of olive oil and one teaspoon of butter. Sauté the mushrooms until they turn brown. Add the peas and stir fry until soft.
  7. Add half a cup of mushroom or chicken broth to the pan. Add flour to the broth and heat it on low heat. Whisk this mixture until it becomes smooth, and ensure there are no lumps. The modiga sauce is ready!
  8. Add the cream and marsala wine to the roux and keep stirring. Cut the mushrooms and add them to the roux. At this point, stir in the shredded cheese.
  9. Top the chicken with the Modiga sauce.

Serve it hot with buttered noodles. You can serve it with noodles or pasta and allow the cheese sauce will slide down to give them a tangy, sweet flavor. Yum Yum!
