Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Chicken Marsala

  It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s!

Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me.  I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers.

So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy.  It might be a main course recipe.  A cookie or baked item.  Candy.  Salads.  Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is CHICKEN MARSALA.

When I have a hankering for Italian food, it’s always difficult to choose just one flavor, especially when I go out to a restaurant. So many choices! Chicken Marsala is one of my top favorites though and this recipe is one of the easiest to make at home.  Takes hardly any time at all to prepare a classic Italian meal that is simply delicious. You’ll fast find this becoming a family favorite.

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s.  Happy eating!

  1. Sounds absolutely wonderful. I can reduce that for one person. I’m thinking a clove of garlic would make it even better. According to my Italian friend, her mother put garlic in everything.

    Thanks for sharing.

    1. Wonderful, Mari! Glad you found something you can trim to size for you. You’re right, a clove of garlic is wonderful. I tend to throw it in without thinking. Garlic is like salt on my table. It goes into everything! 🙂

      Hope you enjoy the recipe!
