Chicken and Mushroom Marsala
Serves: 4

1 lb. chicken breast tenders
½ cup all-purpose flour
1 ½ tsp. coarse salt, divided
¾ tsp. freshly ground black pepper, divided
¼ cup canola oil
8 oz. cremini mushrooms, stemmed and cut into 1-in. pieces
½ cup dry Marsala wine
½ cup chicken stock
2 tbsp. unsalted butter
¼ cup chopped flat-leaf parsley or chives, plus more for garnish

1. Place chicken on a cutting board in a single layer, and cover with plastic wrap. Lightly pound using flat end of a meat mallet until tenderloins are ¼-in. thick.

2. Stir together flour, ½ tsp. salt and ½ tsp. pepper in a wide, shallow bowl.

3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Dip chicken pieces in the flour mixture, turning to coat both sides. Shake off excess flour and place in the heated skillet. Cook 3 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through. Remove from skillet and keep warm.

4. Add mushrooms to skillet and sauté over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, until water has evaporated and mushrooms are browned. Season with remaining 1 tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper. Add wine, and bring to a boil over medium heat for 1½ minutes, or until reduced by half. Add chicken stock, and simmer for 5 minutes, until sauce reduces slightly. Stir in butter.

5. Return chicken to pan, and simmer gently for 1 minute to heat through. Garnish with parsley or chives before serving.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
