Copycat Cheesecake Factory Chicken Madeira
One of my husband's all-time favorite restaurant dishes is the Chicken Madeira at the Cheesecake Factory, so I really wanted to try to make it at home so we could enjoy it more often. My family absolutely loves this Copycat Cheesecake Factory Chicken Madeira recipe, and I hope that yours will too!
Ingredients- Chicken:
  • 2 packages of skinless boneless thin-sliced chicken breasts sliced into bite-sized pieces and tossed in flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 18-20 asparagus spears
  • 12 mozzarella slices
  • 2 cups of sliced white mushrooms
Ingredients- Madeira Sauce:
  • 3 cups of Madeira wine (found at the wine store, not in the cooking wine section of the grocery store)
  • 2 cups of beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
  1. Begin by sautéing the slices of chicken breasts in the olive oil over medium-high heat until golden brown on both sides. The chicken will not be cooked through at this point, which is fine. As you brown a batch of the chicken, remove it from the pan and set aside until you have sautéed all of the chicken.
  2. Next, using the pan drippings and adding more olive oil if needed, sauté the mushrooms until golden brown. Remove them from the pan and set aside.
  3. Using the same pan, add the Madeira wine, beef broth, and butter. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until it reduces to 1½ cups in volume. When it is done it will have thickened and have become a dark brown color.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare your asparagus by adding them to a pot of boiling water and cooking for 3-5 minutes. Immediately plunge the asparagus into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking.
  5. Arrange chicken into two 13×9″ pans, topping it with the asparagus spears, sliced mozzarella, mushrooms, and then the Madeira sauce. Broil for 5-10 minutes until the cheese turns golden and bubbly and the chicken is cooked all the way through!
  6. Serve immediately with mashed potatoes (which is another great way to enjoy the Madeira sauce!)
