Easy Chicken Marsala

homemade chicken marsala recipe

Chicken marsala is one of my favorite Italian dishes. And it’s one I can make in a few short minutes. The flavors of Marsala are so unique with a hint of sweetness (I always use sweet Marsala). Marsala wine comes from the town of Marsala in Sicily; besides being used to flavor recipes like tiramisu, Marsala is served as a mid-meal accompaniment or as a dessert wine.

My recipe uses mascarpone cheese to bring about the telltale creaminess of the dish but I have seen other recipes calling for whipping cream. So if you’re in a crunch, and you don’t have mascarpone on hand, sub in some heavy whipping cream and add a dash of cheese.
