Claude Lenfant's Chicken Marsala

Recipe by Lennie

This is another recipe from my celebrity collection. Claude Lenfant was (still is, for all I know) the director of the U.S. National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. I would serve this with rice or pasta.

Great recipe! I am not a cook, although I am slowly becoming one by trying all your great recipes...this one was easy and great! My husband loved it! The only thing I added was alittle cornstarch to thicken the sauce a bit...thank you so much!
