I liked this! I used apricot jelly instead of apple jelly, and doubled the amount of Marsala wine. The servings are rather small, but that's only a negative because it tastes so good! I'd add a bit more chicken and even more wine in the future.

This was quick easy and delicious! The only change I would make it to double the amount of Marsala so there would be more sauce.
