The flavor of this dish was absolutely superb. I have only one modification to this recipe. In the directions, they have you cook the chicken IN the sauce. When I followed the recipe this way, the breading on the chicken soaked up all of the sauce which resulted in no sauce and a soggy coating on the chicken. I remade this entree again but cooked the chicken in one saute pan and the sauce in another. Then I poured the sauce over the chicken when I served it. The presentation was nicer and it tasted even better. I can't say enough about the taste of this dish though! It is wonderful and was very easy to make. Mary

We had a Chicken Marsala on board Cruise just taken. This recipe is every bit as good if not better! I would increase the sauce a bit as it's delicious. I added just a bit of Bouquet to brown the sauce a bit. Yummy! Served with fresh melons cut up, Alfredo Fettucini and mixed veggies. I also added just a bit of water and flour to thicken a bit more.Thanks for a great tasting recipe! LouLou
