Chicken Marsala

I never knew that I loved Chicken Marsala until I made this recipe. Thin cutlets of chicken are browned in a skillet, then the wine and mushroom sauce simmers away to perfection.  A bit of half and half is added in last to add a richness to the dish that is delicious! This recipe lends itself well to a freezer dish, but it is also a quick weeknight meal, and can be on the table in no time.

    I am sorry — I’m confused by the freezing directions. Is “Place chicken in one gallon freezer bag. Seal.” supposed to be included in the freezing directions? Or should it just say ‘Place chicken bag and sauce bag into one gallon bag. Label and freeze.”

    I’m drooling. Too bad there’s not a way to sub the marsala wine, though–my husband can’t have anything with alcohol in it. Guess I’ll just have to make this next time he’s out of town.

    This was a big hit for my family. I didn’t have marshals wine so I just used a good red table wine I had and everyone loved it. (Served it with egg noodles and garlicky green beans)

    Can I freeze it in larger batches all together in a stern pan?
