Easy Chicken MarsalaChicken Marsala is one of my favorite dishes; my family loves it too!

Chicken Marsala is actually an Italian-American dish.  It’s a variation of Italian scaloppina dishes which has many variations.  Chicken Marsala is a savory dish made with chicken breasts, mushrooms, and sweet Marsala wine; some recipes call for cream to produce a creamy sauce for the chicken.  Still others require the chicken breasts lightly battered and fried and requires a bit more time to prepare.

I love all versions of Chicken Marsala, but sometimes time doesn’t permit me to cook the battered version.  Those days I turn to this Easy Chicken Marsala recipe that takes less than a  half hour to make.  It’s easy and delicious.  Served over pasta or with mashed potatoes it makes an easy meal.  I like to serve it with a tossed salad to complete the meal.

Here’s my Easy Chicken Marsala recipe!  It easily feeds 6!
