"I just love this sauce, and it is so easy to put together, too. Though I haven't tried it with chicken yet, I think it would be great with 4 chicken breast fillets substituted for the pork chops--simply increase the simmering time (in step number 6)."

"This recipe was very easy to make. Other than using bone-in chops, I did not alter the recipe at all. The prep was minimal, which was good for a weeknight. We liked the sauce, but maybe not enough to make again. Thanks!"
"Tasty and tender pork chops. I felt that it needed something so I added several chopped kalamata olives."
"This was really good! My husband loved it...he said it tasted Tuscan before I even told him what is was called. I didn't have any wine on hand, so just used more chicken broth. I also used oil packed tomatoes blotted really well and dried rosemary. I stuck my sauce in a food chopper right before adding the cornstarch/water slurry. Great recipe!"
"This is delicious and I found that it reheats well and the flavour actually improves after sitting for a couple of days. I made it this time with pork chops but will definitely try it with chicken, too."
"Just made this tonight. It was an adventure. My stove wasn't working and all I had was an electric frying pan. So, I sauteed some onion, garlic with butter, added a cup of rice to the pan, sauteed that for a bit, then added chick broth and a tablespoon of chopped rosemary, put it in a covered casserole and into a 350 oven for 40 minutes. Wiped out the electric fry pan with paper towels and started this dish. I also used sun dried tomatoes in oil (rinsed off), chopped them and put them in a 2 cup pyrex measuring cup. Added port wine (only sweeter wine I had), and the broth. Since I had no stove, I microwaved the mixture for about a minute and 15 seconds and let it stand, and proceeded to cook the chops etc. I only had a yellow onion, no shallots. At the end after I thickened the sauce I added a tablespoon of butter to richen it up. The moistest, yummiest pork chops EVER. And with the rice. Even without a stove and one pot it worked. Thank you for this recipe. It was a life saver today!"
"Excellent sauce, I used it for Pork Tenderloin Medallions, leftovers were fabulous as well!"
"Gets five from me. For those who don't have exact ingredients, I used marsala, sweet diced onion and sun-dried tomatoes oil packed but washed off. I also seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic powder before. This chicken is fantastic. Served Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Marsala on this site as a side. Both are must try recipes."
"Great dish to make when company is coming. Simple to put together but the flavors are perfect to impress and make a delicious meal to please everyone. I might try experimenting with different types of wine. I bet a sweet Marsala would work for this, and may work well with chicken or pork too!"
"I thought this was very good but I think I would have liked some garlic powder on the chops. I used salt and pepper to season them before browning but thought they needed a bit more. My youngest son wouldn't eat it but I think this was too sophisticated for his palate."
"Delicious! I had thought I might want to double the sauce, but found that it was the perfect amount as written. I did find some madeira wine, but think it would be just as delicious using port. I served this with mashed potatoes. This would be a great dish for company as it was quick, easy, and yummy. Thank you!"
"We found this meal to be delicious. I chose to make the recipe using boneless skinless chicken breast. I used a heavy skillet and was able to omit the oil and just brown the chicken until it released from the pan. The rest of the components of the recipe made a lovely and healthy pan sauce. Thank you Flemish Minx for sharing the recipe."
"Very delicious! I didn't have any Madeira wine or shallots, so I used Port wine and onion instead. Otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Next time, I plan to use chicken and the oven dried tomatoes (#14681) from this site. Thanks. UPDATE: Made this tonight with chicken and a handful of those oven dried tomatoes. Delicious."
"I really like the sauce, but I think that this would be much better with the chicken. I may try this again with chicken."
"Made this for dinner tonight. Didn't add shallot or cornstarch. I used pork chops and lightly covered them in italian breadcrumbs and browned them on each side in a little oil before adding liquid to pan. I just prefer them that way and it was delicious and excellant! Enjoyed by all with salad and dinner rolls. Thank-you for this great recipe. I will make this again."
"I made this with chicken pretty much the same way that Barb Gertz did, except I did not pound the chicken. I didn't notice Barb's review until just now as I scrolled to the bottom of the page to write the review.- I know this isn't too helpful, but basically she took the words out of my mouth. She wrote almost exactly what I was going to say about the combination of the rosemary, shallots, garlic, tomatoes, and wine as well as mentioning using Perdue boneless, skinless breasts. I still wanted to give you the 5 star rating you deserve even though, now I have nothing really creative to say. I guess I will have to make this again with pork (and make sure I read everyone else's review first) so I don't end up at a loss for words. Ah, I just thought of something creative: this recipe will leave you speechless! This was truely fantastic. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe. Will absolutely make this again."
"This is everything I like in a recipe, quick to prepare, simple ingredients, fairly healthy and fabulous flavor. Plus, the sauce is wonderfully aromatic and the color is quite appealing. Though I was only making 2 chicken breasts, I made a full batch of the sauce and spooned it over some pasta. Yummmmmy! Another winner here Minx. "
"I didn't have Madeira so I used another fortified wine, Port. I otherwise followed directions, using pork chops. The pork came out lovely and tender and the sauce was out of this world. Good show, Minx! "
"Nice match of flavors and easy to prepare. I used too many sundried tomatoes -I had julliened and guessed how many 10 would be, a measurement (1/4C?) would be more helpful."
"Absolutely delicious! DH and I inhaled this in an alarminly short space of time! I used chicken breasts and port instead of madiera - it all came together perfectly! Great recipe for dinner guests, thanks for posting!"
