Time For My Personal Tips!

Tip 1: For extra flavor, I like to marinate the chicken breasts in a mixture of olive oil, minced garlic, and a splash of Marsala wine for about 30 minutes before dredging them in flour and cooking. This adds depth to the dish and ensures the chicken stays moist during cooking.

Tip 2: To elevate the presentation of the dish, I sometimes sprinkle a pinch of freshly grated Parmesan cheese over the chicken Marsala just before serving. It adds a subtle nuttiness and richness that complements the flavors of the sauce beautifully.

Tip 3: If you want to make this dish ahead of time, you can cook the chicken Marsala up to the point of simmering it with the sauce, then let it cool and refrigerate. When ready to serve, simply reheat gently on the stove, adding a splash of chicken broth if needed to thin out the sauce. This makes it a convenient option for entertaining or meal prep.

What To Serve With Chicken Marsala?

Pro Secret About Chicken Marsala Recipe

You can flatten the chicken instead of slicing it in half lengthwise. Use four chicken breasts and sear them in batches. Making smaller cutlets helps them cook faster and stay tender. It’s my favorite way to save time!

Best Substitutions and Variations!

If you don’t have Marsala, you can use madeira or sherry instead, but Marsala is best. You can use chicken thighs instead of breasts, but sear them a bit longer. For the sauce, it’s best to use heavy cream. Using half-and-half or milk will make it thinner, so you might need more flour or cornstarch to thicken it. Some people have used extra chicken broth instead of cream and liked it. If you want an extra creamy sauce, you can use 1 cup of heavy cream. Enjoy experimenting!

Leftovers And Storages

You can store the leftover chicken in the fridge for 3-4 days in a sealed container. To reheat, just warm it up in a saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally until it’s hot. Because of the creamy sauce, it’s best not to freeze it.

Can I Use a Different Type of Wine Instead of Marsala?

Personally, I find that Marsala wine gives the dish its distinctive flavor, but if you don’t have Marsala on hand, you can substitute it with a dry white wine or a combination of sherry and brandy for a similar depth of flavor.
