Chicken Marsala...easy & wonderful!

This recipe originated on an old HGTV show called "All in Good Taste".  It was a great resource for some wonderful recipes.  I tried this one right after I watched it.  It is wonderful and I've served it many, many times.  It is easy and everyone raved about the flavor.  This recipe turns you from a cook into a "Chef"!  Serve with garlic smashed potatoes, asparagus, and a light salad.  What a wonderful dinner..

When making Chicken Marsala, you need to flatten the chicken breasts.  Here's a short video showing how to do it... This method is also used for Chicken Piccata and Turkey Piccata..

Like everyone, I love Pinterest. I think I now have over 13,000 pins. I know it's crazy, but when you find great recipes, crafts and ideas all in one place, it's a great thing. I spent the whole month of January categorizing all those pins. It was a crazy thing to do, but now everything is at my fingertips. I remember in years past collecting lots of magazine stuff and recipes and whatever and putting them in folders. Now we can carry all those recipes and ideas with us on our phone, or tablet, or computer or laptop.  It's also a great thing.

This post was on chicken dishes, so if you're looking for something in that category, just check out my "Chicken Board" for more great recipes for lunch and dinner.

Here are a few "Pins" relating to the chicken post... They're all great!
I love making chicken so many ways. The Chicken and Dumplings recipe is the best one I've ever used, and the easiest! Forgotten chicken is an old recipe, but it's delicious and so easy to make. The rotiserrie chicken recipe made in the new instapots is wonderful. All the juice stays in it, unlike baking in the oven. This recipe is a keeper. The chicken wrapped asparagus is the very best! Show off your talents by making this recipe. It's well worth the effort! Until next time...
Always remember..."Life's short, eat dessert first!"...words to live by!
