Chicken Marsala

Recipe by Mims Squims

This was my first attempt at Chicken Marsala, a dish I wasn't even sure I'd like. Now I love it, and this bare-bones recipe gives me lots of room to get creative with extra seasonings & added ingredients. Plus, it's a low-fat version!

Absolutely delicious! I used chicken thighs, which is my preferred cut. I also added lemon zest, one chopped shallot, and one chopped garlic clove. I put the chicken on paper towels to drain while I was cooking the sauce. I added 2 T butter when I returned the chicken to the dish, b/c I love the taste of butter. The dish looked amazing and tasted even better.
