  • Review: pretty good as long as you like the flavors in marsala. The sauce came together nicely and the chicken fell apart (duh, it took 6 hrs to cook in it’s entirety). Since you’re basically cooking the chicken just in marsala wine and garlic though, I’d recommend actually adding some spices while you’re cooking – good additions would be red pepper flakes, salt, oregano, basil, parsley, onion powder, chives, paprika. Overall though, it’s a pretty healthy way to eat chicken, since there’s no added fats and no breading. I’m a fan overall, just would add the spices too. Would make again, this recipe was true to size, about 4 – 4 ½ servings overall so good for dinner one night and then lunch the next day.
