Someone please answer Jill's question above. Hard to find marsala wine here.

Kudos on this great site, wonder how I missed it so far.

Without marsala try substituting gewurtzaminer & sauternes. Balance the flavors until you like how dry or sweet it is. Drink the rest...

i am a person who don't consume wine. i am pretty excited to try out this recipe but am afraid that excluding the wine will change the flavour of the whole dish. Is there any other ingredients i can substitute the wine with?

This is really a tasty and easy recipe - Thanks!! And a bit of advice for all you youngsters just beginning to cook with wines: There's a lot of truth in the old rule of thumb when cooking with wine - If it's not good enough to drink, DON'T cook with it! Those so called "cooking wines" that you find in grocery stores will do more harm to a dish than good (loaded with salt & just plain nasty!) There are a lot of good inexpensive wines out there....I use Cribari, a California Marsala that doesn't break my budget. Also try an inexpensive Port to make a great reduction to serve with steak .... yummy!

Could you tell me if the pompeian brand marsala cooking wine is a sweet wine? Thanks


Chicken Marsala is one of my favorite dishes and I've used a few different brands. Pompeian is usable in a pinch, but as the marsala wine is the primary flavor source, I would recommend upgrading to a "non-supermarket" marsala. (I don't think I could ever see myself kicking back with a glass of pompeian after dinner. If it doesn't go in a glass, it doesn't belong in the pan either.) I have had a lot of success with florio sweet marsala. It's usually between $10-15 at wine shops and will be good for 4-5 batches.

Happy Cooking.

I love the way this recipe is laid out but not as much as I love being able to make something that tastes soooo good! Excellent job! Thanks!

PS, Depending on what's on hand, I switch between the Marsala cooking wine and imported Sangria. LOL!

Made this last night. Very tasty, and easy. My teenager in typical teen hyperbolic fashion complained that the sauce "smelled" and that the small taste I made her take was "the worst experience of her life!" I had to wipe the sauce off one of the chicken pieces for her. Oh well, her loss, as that meant I got all the mushrooms and sauce!

I'm an English teacher, not an engineer, but this is one of the best recipe sites I've found online. Everything is logical and easy to follow, and the food is delicious. Great work, engineers!

I'm trying to buy Marsala wine to prepare this recipe but I can't find it anywhere. I read that this is as dessert wine, that can sometimes be compared to Port wine. I'm Portuguese, so I can buy Port easily. My question is: if I use Port, will the overall taste of the dish be totally different? Can I use it as a substitute?

Great site, congratulations Michael!

Hugo -

anything full bodied red tending to 'sweet' will work just fine.

Thanks for this wonderful recipe! I made it this evening, as I had some fresh mushrooms that just begged to be combined with chicken.

As I had frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts, and I was in a hurry, I mixed them with the brine and microwaved on "defrost" for several cycles. MI didn't completely defrost, but then cut the chicken into pieces after microwaving, then rinsed and cooked up chicken as recommended. Marvellous flavor! Very tender! Thanks so much for this technique!

About the wine--I live in wine country (Finger Lakes region of New York State), so had a variety of local wines to choose from. I mixed a fairly dry white local table wine with some lovely local sherry (I swear I can taste hazelnuts in it!); the sherry would have been too sweet and overpowering, and the dry white was too uninteresting. I think the secret is mixing to taste; it added a truly wonderful flavor to the chicken!

I also added only 1-2 tablespoons of half and half, then thickened with corn starch, and served over egg noodles. Absolutely delicious! You are quite right--this is a superb recipe that lends itself to tinkering. Many, many thanks! A new staple for my recipe box!

Love the site. But you should be aware that your page for chicken and mushroom marsala doesn't display properly when viewed using the Firefox browser. The word 'reduce' in the schematic is displayed (twice) left to write rather than up and down, which rather messes up your neat diagram.

All the best,

Excellent start-off recipe!! I actually made 16 breasts (increase the ingredients accordingly) which required me to do the reciped three times. I DID need to slice the breasts in order to have them cooked through. It is CRITICAL that the breasts soak in salted water for about 90 inutes!! For my recipe I also added the following ingredients for the entire tray of Chicken Marsala: 1 3/4 chopped large red onions, 6 containers portobello mushrooms, 10 bunches of scallions (also called green onions) chopped, and 12 strips of choppped cooked maple bacon. I also needed to add about two tablespoons of gold medal flour to each pan I made to thichen the sauce. I seasoned the sauce with some salt, pepper & a lot of garlic powder. Once all three frying pans worth of food were done, I put all of it into a large serving tray that went into the oven to stay warm. This is the best Chicken Marsala I've ever tasted!!
