      I just made this recipe from Fine Cooking last weekend. It is easy and turned out fantastic! Just a richer version of the classic chicken marsala. Any extra sauce is great to scoop up with some bread...

      This is fabulous! The sauce needs to be doubled, as it doesn't make enough if you're serving it over pasta. The gorgonzola makes it restaurant quality, but it is so easy to make.

      This is one of the beast meals I've had in some time, and I'm no slacker in the eating well department. I used real gorgonzola- don't buy that crumbled stuff pre-packaged in the dairy case. The sauce is utterly fabulous. Would also go great by itself on pasta... bonus, this goes together quickly, so is great for weeknights, too.
