Chicken Marsala is a family favorite. It’s easy and delicious, and no Chicken Marsala is complete without a silky rich wine sauce.
This is a classic American Italian dish that likely originated with English families who lived in western Sicily, where Marsala wine is produced. It’s wonderful served over pasta, rice, with mashed potatoes, or even just slices of thick crusty bread; perfect for sopping up the delicious Marsala sauce.
Another great chicken dish with wine is a French dish called Coq au Vin, a classic Julia Child dish which means “Chicken in Red Wine”, we loved this one too. These are both pretty budget friendly, but look elegant so they’re a good “go to” for entertaining. The in-laws are coming or Aunt Becky is driving up for the weekend, no stress make them a meal they can go back home and brag about.
Need an idea for a stay at home date night? (Which can really boost your relationship goals by the way.) Send the kiddos off for a pajama party at someone else’s house for a change. Get an extra bottle of wine and just cozy in for a romantic night at home. Or someone asks what’s a good dinner to impress a new someone special for a date. This is perfect, you don’t need fancy chef skills to pull this off. But if you just want to make it for a nice family dinner they’ll love it too. And you don’t have to worry about the wine sauce; the alcohol burns off while it’s cooking. It’s just all about the flavor, that’s why we love this dish so much. It tastes so darn good you’ll want to add it as a regular go to in your recipe box!
