    • Cindy…that is the best part. Under 30 minutes and no more boring chicken. 🙂

    • You could always add mushrooms and broccolini to this recipe and let your fiance enjoy the mushrooms while you enjoy the broccolini. Best of both worlds 🙂

  • 4 stars
    I’m having a hard time getting the sauce to thicken. I followed the recipe exact and it is not thickening at all. Smells and looks wonderful still.

    • The sauce will not be quite as thick as gravy. If you prefer a thicker sauce, add a teaspoon or two more of flour to the pan with the floured chicken. Hope it turned out delicious. Thanks Julia 🙂

  • Looks delicious! You show some other herb sprinkled on top that is not part of the recipe. What is it?

    • I grow my own herbs and sometimes sprinkle fresh on my dishes…this is fresh thyme. It adds a subtle hint of sweetness that accentuates the marsala. Totally optional:)

  • Would you recommend using pork chops instead of chicken ???
