I can't believe I haven't rated this yet! I make this every time I want Marsala. I haven't actually made the polenta although I'm sure I would love it - hubby is not a fan, so we serve with mashed potatoes instead. I love how easy the recipe is, and the depth of flavor is great. Making it again tonight, and just pinned it on my menu board at pinterest.com. Thanks for sharing!!
If nothing else, this gets 5 stars for the ease of putting together a good meal with a great presentation. But it is flavorful too! The mushroom sauce melds perfectly with the cheesy, creamy polenta and the chicken. The only change I made was to substitute boneless, skinless chicken thighs because that is what I had on hand. Thank you Flying Chef for a quick meal that I would gladly serve to guests.
