Chicken Marsala

I made this today for a family Christmas party and was a little nervous never having made it but I think it came out great and people seemed to like it.

6 chicken breasts, halved
olive oil, small amount to cook the chicken
3 eggs
water (to mix with eggs for dipping)
1.5 to 2 cups italian style bread crumbs
1 cup chopped onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 10 oz. packages baby bella mushrooms sliced
1.5 cups marsala wine
1.5 cups chicken broth
6 TBSP flour

Preheat the oven to 375. Mix the eggs and water in a large bowl and place the bread crumbs in a separate plate for dipping. Add a tablespoon or two of olive oil to the pan and heat. Dip each chicken breast in the egg mixture, then into the bread crumbs. Cook on each side for 3-5 minutes or until browned. Place the chicken on a separate plate.

When the chicken is done, using the same pan, cook the onions for 3-5 minutes or until soft. Add the garlic and mushrooms and cook another 5-7 minutes. Pour in the marsala wine and chicken broth. Mix in the flour and boil approx. 5 minutes until thickened. Place the chicken in a baking dish (I used 3 for this many) and cover with the marsala sauce. Bake for 20 mins at 375.

To cook for less people, just decrease the amounts (4 chix, 1/2 cup marsala wine, 1 cup broth, 3 TBSP flour, 1/2 cup onion, 1-2 cloves garlic)
