  1. STEP 1

  2. STEP 2

    Melt 2 tablespoons butter in 12-inch skillet until sizzling; add chicken and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat, turning once, 6-8 minutes or until chicken is browned.(Reduce heat, if necessary, to prevent garlic from burning.) Add wine and mushrooms.

Tip #1

A Sicilian import, Marsala is Italy’s most famous wine. The flavor is very rich and slightly smoky. Dry Marsala is often used in savory cooking whereas the sweet variety finds its way into desserts. In this particular recipe, a dry sherry could be substituted.

First time cooking Chicken Marsala, it couldn't get any easier. I did add sliced onion to it and cubed the chicken to serve it over noodles. It turned out great!

Quick, easy and delicious. Everyone loves it! We usually add more wine to make additional sauce and double the recipe, otherwise the kids would have it all gone in no time. :)

So good! I have made this recipe twice now and the next day leftovers are even better then the first night. It does take a little longer for the sauce to thicken a bit but other then that this recipe is perfect!
