I saw Chef John make this a while ago and I've been dying to give it a go. It's been 15 or so years since I had it last. I'm not sure why it's been so long because it's really good. I'm going to be making this more often now...
Chicken Marsala is a classic and elegant looking Italian dish that appetizing for its looks but scares home cooks as it requires wine for cooking. Chef makes this dish like a child's play and so can you by following directions. Sautéed chicken breasts cooked in marsala wine sauce should definitely be on the menu for parties and ceremonial events.
