    1. If you reserve a couple tablespoons of Bacon grease from the batch of Bacon you wont need any olive oil. Added several. Slices of Bacon to the recipe and it was Fantastic. Found something new to add to the weekly rotation. ???

    1. I am in the process of adding nutritional facts to each of my recipes at this time. In the meantime you are welcome to use for any questions you may have.

      1. Hi , making this tonight and was wondering , you put thinly sliced for chicken but the video shows it as whole breast . Scared the chicken comes out dry .

        Do you cut strips before or after cooking chicken

        1. If the chicken is too thick I will cut the chicken to make two thin chicken pieces, not in half. If they are the frozen chicken thawed out, those are already thin enough. I slice my chicken after cooking them. Hope that helps! Let me know how you like it.

  1. 5 stars
    I made as directed and doubled the sauce. Was excellent. No leftovers! It was my husband’s birthday and he even made the comment about he would order this again at a restaurant. Everyone went back for seconds!

  2. Make this about 2 months ago, my family is nuts over this recipe. I made one adjustment, I used fresh garlic. I’m making again tonight . We eat a lot of chicken so I am always looking for new ways to prepare, thank you.

  3. I’ve made this recipe for family and for parties. It’s simple, can be made ahead of time and reheated in a casserole dish. Definitely double the sauce! I serve it over wild rice and always get rave reviews!!

  4. I am going to try this in 2 days. We loved the Creamy Chicken Marsala and even shared some with a friend of my daughter’s and he loved it to!

    1. This is fabulous!!! It was the easiest recipe I have ever made and we all loved it. It makes such a delicious sauce. It also makes a wonderful presentation. Great chefs say you eat with your eyes first and this looks as good as it tastes. The only problem was I didn’t make more. I can’t say enough great things about it. Thank you and keep the recipes coming.

  5. I made this dish last night and it was absolutely awesome! I served it over fettuccine – simple, easy to follow instructions – thank you so much!

  6. I have made this several times in both the instant pot and a crock pot! Super easy and so delish. My entire family of 4 loved it!

  7. I was wondering the sun dried tomatoes I have a jar of them do you put the oil in too or drain the the tomato’s ?

      1. Absolutely fantastic! Thank for sharing this recipe. I make this once a week and dream about it the rest of the week. Lol.
        The only thing different thing I add are sautéed mushrooms. I put them in at the end with the chicken.
        Also, for more flavor I add the oil from the jarred sundried tomatoes into the skillet I’m cooking the chicken in and into the skillet I’m sautéing the mushrooms in.

        Thank you!!!!

    1. I make this regularly and have used both the jarred tomatoes in oil and herbs and the ones that are sealed in a bag or vacuum sealed and I will say that there’s a huge difference in taste. The oil imparts so much flavor. I will usually drain about 1/2 of it off then dump the rest in with the tomatoes.

  8. Made this last night and it was delicious! FYI: If anyone happens to be out of heavy cream, you can substitute with 3/4 C milk and 1/4 C butter!

  9. Would you ever put bacon in first & cook the chicken in the residue bacon grease & then chop said cooked bacon & add back in when you put the chicken back in?

  10. This was so easy to make and taste delicious! I a few shrimp to it and my husband loved it. This recipe is keeper. Thank you ?

  11. I’ve made this a bunch of times and it always turns out amazing! It reheats well, and is simply delicious. It tastes just like a restaurant meal.

  12. Absolutely DELICIOUS. Our family is all over the place in tastes, and everybody loved this. I’ll be making it for friends tomorrow. I noticed another poster mentioned she made it in the instant pot, Alyssa have you tried this recipe in the IP and if so, any modifications or tips and tricks?

  13. This just became our family’s new favorite dish. Unreal good, its a winner. Mods on my side were dredging the chicken in a light flour/seasoning to help the browning, went 1.5 on sauce ingredients to make more/counter longer simmering, a touch heavier on the cheese above that, heavier on pepper to give more kick vs the creaminess, and then lowering the heat to let the chicken simmer in the sauce for an extended period of time. Would have done fresh garlic however mine had chutes so I had to dump it and go seasoning. Its quick, its rich, and it’s now going to be something we make quite often.

  14. I’ve made this tons of times and it’s delicious! However, my sauce will never thicken. It’s still just as yummy, but do I need to do anything to get the sauce to thicken?

    1. This happens to me too. I’ve tried vigorously whisking, lightly whisking, stirring with the whisk, letting it just simmer, it never thickens lol. I just add a tiny bit of flour and it does the trick. We love this so much we are going to triple the sauce next time. Thank you for this recipe!

  15. This recipe is our go-to recipe if we cannot think of what to have for dinner. We always put it over fresh fettuccine pasta. And, always double the sauce. I forgot to do that once and didn’t notice until it was time to serve. ??‍♀️ I posted this recipe on Facebook and honestly have half of Lincoln loving it and making it. It’s that good!

  16. I made this twice and each time it was a hit. I didn’t have any sun-dried tomatoes but I did have some grape tomatoes that I sliced in half and I let them simmer with the sauce on a lower heat for a while and it was delicious. Thanks for the great recipe!

  17. I love this recipe. I have made it for dinner a few times. I cook for an American Legion every Sunday for our Veterans. I diced up 5lbs of chicken and use fresh garlic and my home made sun dried tomatoes. I mix it all with pasta when done. Of course extra sauce. That’s what they will be having this Sunday. Thanks for a great recipe!!!!

  18. This recipe was so frickin good omg I love it my family loves it as my son is crazy about the chicken Marsala it’s amazing

  19. Made this for dinner tonight, followed the recipe (just doubled up on the sauce) and served with fettichini pasta. I must say this was FANTASTIC! Absolutely a restaurant quality meal!!!

  20. This recipe was awesome . I was amazed at how easy this was to make. I must say the sun dried tomatoes were the ” key secret” to the amazing flavor. Thank you so much for a 5 STAR recipe. My family loved it.!!

  21. I have made this at least once a month since the first time, it was such a hit with my family!!! I have put over spaghetti squash, linguine, rice, spaghetti, penne, you name we have put this yummy delicious recipe over it. Thanks for this incredible recipe that is now one our family favorites.

  22. i made this last night my wife and i split it without anything,just as a dish, she said i know what you are making tomorrow night! So here i am! Excellent recipe!!

  23. This recipe is awesome! Tonight I made it with chicken and shrimp. I added 8 Oz’s sliced fresh mushrooms, 3 cups spinach and because we don’t like sun dried tomatoes, I added halved cherry tomatoes at the very end. I did double the sauce to serve over fettuccine. I added 1lb of extra lg. raw shrimp in the spinach and mushrooms. Also added a couple tablespoons of capers just because! My family went wild over this!

  24. Made this tonight for family- it was soooo delicious and everyone loved it! ? I bought chicken tenders which I dredged lightly in flour, seasoned with salt and pepper and lightly browned in olive oil. (Thank you Rich for the tip!). I then removed from the pan and added more olive oil and about 6 minced cloves of fresh garlic (minced with a garlic press). Sautéed for a minute and then added the chicken broth/heavy cream/freshly grated Parmesan and seasonings plus garlic powder. Made extra sauce (1.5 times the recipe)- it thickened right up. Then added a jar of sun dried tomatoes ? and about 6 cups of baby spinach- once it shrunk down added the chicken tenders back in. Came out perfectly! Served over pasta – such a delicious creamy sauce. Topped with some more shredded Parmesan. Thank you for such a great recipe!! ??

  25. Has anybody made it with zoodles instead of pasta? Doing keto and so was planning on making the substitution for tonight’s dinner. Read all the reviews and can’t wait to try it .

  26. This dish is DELICIOUS!! Although I use Italian blend cheese instead of just plain parmesan, and the grocery store didn’t have sundries tomatoes so I added fresh cherry tomatoes as a topper! Sooooo good!

  27. This recipe is delicious however I add sliced baby portabella mushrooms/ 4 oz of cream cheese (or 4 TB of ricotta cheese) and a few sliced artichokes – it’s always a hit at home and definitely a keeper!

    I used to be a caterer and my hubby was an executive chef! This IS so typical of great Italian recipes! Few, fresh ingredients and oh so flavorful!
    I am not a fan of “garlic powder” so I used one clove of garlic! Wonderful!
