Easy Chicken Marsala is the best Chicken Marsala recipe. It tastes better than most Chicken Marsala you are served in restaurants and it’s simple to make. When you cook at home, you control the quality of the ingredients and you know you are eating something fresh. This Easy Chicken Marsala is so good, your friends will think you are Italian.
Easy Chicken Marsala might make you start speaking Italian.
I found this recipe on She Wears Many Hats. It is scrumptious and super easy. I made ours gluten free and used chicken tenders and it took less than 30 minutes. (Cue the Italian Opera music.) We have made this many times, and it’s always terrific.
Don made it recently and he used boneless chicken breasts, cut thin and pounded to tenderize. It was amazing. I love it when a man cooks for me.
Serve With A Good Pasta
I served it over Schäar’s gluten free spaghetti noodles, which I found to be rather tasteless, so next time I’ll go back to the usual brand I buy, gluten free Bionaturae Organic Penne Rigate (affiliate link). It is made with rice, potato and soy and has the taste and texture of regular pasta.
What You Need
Chicken Marsala is one of my favorite Italian entrees. Now that I’ve made it at home a few times, I’ll be making it on a regular basis (but not too often because it’s high in fat, calories and salt). If you need to be gluten free, it would be risky to order it in a restaurant, since the chicken pieces are dredged in flour before cooking. But since it’s super easy, you can now make it at home using gluten free flour. I think Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten Free Baking Flour (affiliate link) is the best.
For this recipe, I used a knife—my preference is a chef’s knife (affiliate link)—cutting board, measuring cups and spoons, a small rectangular baking dish, and a skillet. What would you use? Go ahead, check out the recipe for Easy Chicken Marsala. Then make some tonight!
