When I think of delicious, old-fashioned comfort food (you know, the kind that makes you feel loved inside and out once you take the last bite) I think of Chicken Marsala. They say this classic Italian dish dates to the 19th century and originated in Sicily, where Marsala wine is produced. Now, this beloved Italian dish has found a permanent place as a meal I will make again and again.
I make this family favorite by slow simmering thinly sliced chicken breasts snuggled between a bed of mushrooms that bath in sweet Marsala wine and heavy cream as it cooks. Because my daughter is both gluten-free and dairy-free, I created a version for her that taste almost exactly the same as my original version. You can find the substitutes in the notes section to the right of the ingredients.
In Italy, they typically serve Chicken Marsala over a bed of noodles. I prefer to top it over creamy mashed potatoes because the Marsala and cream sauce make the most dreamy gravy that pairs perfectly with mashed potatoes. The next time you are looking for an easy to make dish that is as decadent as delicious, give this recipe a try and let me know if you and your family love it as much as we do!
I hope you enjoy this recipe! If you’ve made it please share it with me by tagging @culinary.butterfly on Instagram or @culinarybutterfly on Pinterest, or by using the hashtag #culinarybutterfly on Facebook
