Chicken Marsala is one of my favorite chicken dishes and I love chicken. This recipe is easy to make and everyone will love it!
The chicken in this recipe is crispy, but you can make it with grilled or baked chicken and serve it with the mushrooms and Marsala wine sauce in the recipe.

Want to double the sauce?
The most I ever mix of the wine sauce is a 2:1 ratio of chicken broth to Marsala wine, and I never add more than that.
However, if you are doubling the recipe mix slightly less wine: 2 2/3 cups chicken broth with 1 cup of Marsala wine.
Allow your Marsala wine to cook down the alcohol for several minutes. This allows the rich flavor to remain.
I once tried adding more Marsala wine to the dish, thinking it would taste extra good, but extra wine will actually overpower your mushroom sauce with a very strong wine flavor.
Mushrooms for Chicken Marsala
The mushrooms you choose for this recipe can be white-capped mushrooms, baby bella mushrooms, or cremini.
I’ve even seen canned mushrooms used, which may be a culinary sin, but use what you have on hand or find in the grocery.
What type of wine is Marsala?
The wine comes in both red and white, and sweet and dry. It is a fortified wine, which means additional alcohol is added to bring it’s alcohol content up.
Marsala wine is originated in the small town of Marsala in Sicily, Italy.
Which type of Marsala wine is used to cook with?
Dry wine is traditionally used and preferred in cooking savory dishes.
What goes with chicken Marsala?
It is best served over mashed potatoes or noodles cooked in chicken broth.
Of course, it can be eaten without either side because who doesn’t love sautéed mushrooms in a wine sauce over fried chicken?
