Chicken Marsala


This is a very simply chicken marsala with portobello mushrooms.  When you make chicken marsala, make sure to spend a little more on the wine, it will make a world of difference.  Do not buy the marsala cooking wine in the part of the grocery store where the generic cooking wines are located.  Make sure to buy your marsala wine from the wine aisle. I like Sheffield’s.  Also make sure to use a more flavorful mushroom like the portobello or baby bella’s. I usually like to make lots of the marsala sauce to toss with pasta, but on this occasion, I just wanted something a little more simple.  I served this with roasted sweet potatoes and broccoli.

    I love a recipe that I can memorize and remember all of the ingredients when I’m at the store. I also love the simple method. And who doesn’t love Chicken Marsala!?

    If I’m reading correctly- about your photography- this last shot shows how much better your getting. The highlights/lighting are great, the composition/cropping and the background/plate color combo. I love photography but I struggle with my lighting. I usually end up asking my husband to come help. But one day I’ll get it right!
