    The flavor of this dish was absolutely superb. I have only one modification to this recipe. In the directions, they have you cook the chicken IN the sauce. When I followed the recipe this way, the breading on the chicken soaked up all of the sauce which resulted in no sauce and a soggy coating on the chicken. I remade this entree again but cooked the chicken in one saute pan and the sauce in another. Then I poured the sauce over the chicken when I served it. The presentation was nicer and it tasted even better. I can't say enough about the taste of this dish though! It is wonderful and was very easy to make. Mary

    We had a Chicken Marsala on board Cruise just taken. This recipe is every bit as good if not better! I would increase the sauce a bit as it's delicious. I added just a bit of Bouquet to brown the sauce a bit. Yummy! Served with fresh melons cut up, Alfredo Fettucini and mixed veggies. I also added just a bit of water and flour to thicken a bit more.Thanks for a great tasting recipe! LouLou

    amazing, my neighbor and I make it all the time, if you want a sweeter taste use an orange instead of lemon! It tastes amazing and very simple for beginners;)

    My oldest son and I made this for dinner last night. With a few tweaks, it was delicious. All 4 fussy kids, husband, and father-in-law ate it up. We added 2 minced cloves of garlic to the cooking mushrooms because garlic makes everything better. Then we cut the marsala down to 1/2 cup, but added a cup of chicken broth. At the final tasting, I found the wine sauce to be rather bitter, so I added a 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice and a 1/2 tablespoon of sugar. Then it was just perfect.

    I love this recipe and so does anti have served it to. The only tweak I have done is to double butter, olive oil and wine and a bit more flour. I serve over angel hair pasta. So with the doubling you have a little more "sauce"

    We added 2 minced cloves of garlic while cooking the mushrooms. We cut the marsala wine down to 1/2 cup, but then added a cup of chicken broth. I did a taste of the sauce when it was nearly done and found the wine taste to be rather bitter, so I added about 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1/2 tablespoon of sugar. That made it perfect.
