  3. Remove from the pan and set aside.

  5. Now into this add the shallots and cook, stirring often until the shallots start to soften, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and stir for another minute.
  6. Once all chicken and vegetables are cooked add the Marsala and broth and cook until the sauce thickens a little, about 1 minute. Add the chicken back to the skillet and cook until heated through, about 2 more minutes.
