Chicken Mushroom Marsala


Total Time:



I’m bringing out one of my favorite recipes from culinary school today…. Chicken Mushroom Marsala! It’s a throw back to my French roots from culinary school, and while it sounds fancy, it’s also easy to make. And the mushroom situation going on here is probably going to have you licking your plate clean.

Chicken and Mushroom Marsala

    This looks fabulous! What a great idea for dinner this week. Your mushrooms look completely gorgeous. Whenever I cook mushrooms I always hear Julia Child’s voice in my head saying “don’t crowd the mushrooms!” Ha!

    My cabinets are a mish mash of pots and pans I have inherited and a few I have purchased over the years. I think I should treat myself to these! And I would love to have some space freed up for other things!
    The chicken looks wonderful as well, but I can’t take my eyes off of the cookware!!
