Paula Moldenhauer's Chicken Marsala with Angel Hair

Titanic: Legacy of Betrayal, by Paula Moldenhauer and Kathleen Kovach

A secret. A key. Much was buried when the Titanic went down, but now it’s time for resurrection.

April 1912 – Olive Stanford boarded the Titanic determined to protect all she held dear. Her secret will go with her to the grave—but how can she face the afterlife carrying the burden of her actions?

April 2012 – Portland real estate agent, Ember Keaton-Jones, distrusts men, with good reason. Ever since her great-great-grandfather, Thomas, deserted the family after the fateful sinking of the Titanic, every Keaton male has disappointed. Ember is on the brink of a huge sale when a stranger shows up with a key to a century-old secret challenging everything she believes. She meets forward-thinking Jeff Dawson who is working in the family’s musty antique shop and finds an unexpected ally in unlocking the mystery of her past. But can they undo the legacy of Thomas Keaton’s betrayal? 
Carefully researched, this engaging tale includes true stories of the Titanic embedded in historical fiction.

Paula's Recipe: Chicken Marsala with Angel Hair
6 chicken breasts
Mrs. Dash seasoning to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil

1/3 cup Marsala wine

Butter Sauce:
1 stick butter (or 4 T butter and 4 T olive oil)
1 1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t basil


2 packages angel hair pasta
Shredded Parmesan cheese to taste


Cube chicken breasts, and season with Mrs Dash. In large skillet, saute chicken in olive oil and butter. Deglaze with Marsala. Heat butter sauce in small sauce pan until all is melted/clear. (Do not let it get brown.) Cook pasta in boiling water according to directions. Drain. In serving bowl, combine chicken, butter sauce, pasta, and shredded Parmesan Cheese.

My family loves this served with fresh peas and a garden salad. Sometimes I make Challah bread to accompany the meal.
