This Chicken Marsala recipe is a rich, creamy, and saucy chicken dish with bursting flavors. If you are in need of a quick dish to make in 30 minutes your whole family loves, this chicken marsala is it.
Not to mention, it’s perfect for the Keto diet.
By browning the chicken and mushroom first, you get to bring out the aroma and flavors. From there, you are adding the chicken broth, cream, and marsala wine to simmer to make a savory sauce.
It’s a pretty simple cooking process that you are probably familiar with already.
The base of the chicken marsala is obviously marsala wine and chicken. But by adding in the mushroom and herbs, you can add the depth to its flavors and elevate its aroma. It’s earthy, rich, and simply amazing.
This recipe has more mushroom than many other marsala recipes I’ve seen, but feel free to cut back if you like it less. I personally love the texture and flavors of Italian mushrooms, so I can’t really help myself!
I also like to add in a tablespoon of tamari soy sauce when I have it around. Since it’s completely optional and I don’t always add it in, I didn’t add to the recipe.
