Chicken Marsala

Chicken Marsala is a classic Italian dish rich in history and flavor. Imported from Sicily and made from local grapes, Marsala is Italy's most famous fortified wine. Marsala wine is frequently used to cook risotto, make desserts like tiramisu and shortcake, and of course, used for Chicken Marsala.

A typical Marsala sauce involves reducing the wine to a syrup with onions or shallots, then adding mushrooms and herbs. Marsala sauces have a rich, smoky flavor that complements chicken perfectly.

Our chef’s version of Chicken Marsala is a flawlessly delicious and healthy alternative to the Italian favorite! Chicken breast halves are marinated in a savory mixture of Marsala, olive oil, mushrooms, and spices.

Chicken Marsala is complemented by Green Beans Almondine and Roasted Carrots. Fresh green beans with toasted almonds and roasted carrots served on the side make this featured meal a treat for all. The whole dinner contains around 300 calories. The result is a flavorful Italian dish that’s both tasty and nutritious!
