Chicken Marsala is an Italian-American dish consisting of tender chicken and mushrooms in a creamy Marsala wine sauce.
This recipe calls for Marsala wine. For savory recipes like this, you ideally want to use a dry Marsala wine. If you can’t find any, you can also use Madiera wine or fortified port wine. A dry white wine will also work, but you will lose a lot of the complexity of flavor. Keep in mind that without Marsala wine, the dish isn’t truly Chicken Marsala!

Did all the work but sadly this recipe had little flavour. I used liquor store Marsala but found not enough flavour very disappointing.
I’m sorry this recipe wasn’t to your tastes, Denise!
l love chicken marsala but i do not use cooking wine i go to the liquor store and buy good marsala cooking wine has to much salt a good Italian marsala makes a better dish
Thanks for the tip, Lil!
I only get it at the liquor store too and then I felt like it wasn’t flavorful enough. I’d be curious to know what OP used. I’d guess cooking wine.
