Recipe by Chef John
"Certain dishes have a special place in my heart and this is one of them. The first real restaurant job I had in San Francisco was at a small place called Ryan's Cafe. It was run by a husband and wife team, Michael and Lenore Ryan. They were true 'foodies' before that term had even been coined. This chicken Marsala dish was the most popular dish on the menu and the first one that I was taught."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Perfect, classic chicken marsala. This was so simple but it looked like I worked all day on it. I had two minor changes.....I added a few more mushrooms because we love them and I used bonelss skinless chicken breasts because that is what I had on hand. Thanks for a easy and delicious recipe Chef John!
Made this tonight for dinner - flavor was fantastic! Thanks Chef!
OMG!! Fantastic Chicken Marsala and served over pantanella pasta, thanks again Chef John for a fanrtastic and easy recipe for one of my favorites.
We all really liked this. I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of the Marsala (I know...it's chicken MARSALA!) but I didn't have any. I looked up substitutes and found that Marsala is brandy fortified white wine and an acceptable substitute is 1 cup white wine to 4 tsp. brandy. I will put Marsala on my next grocery list so I will be prepared next time!
Perfect!! I didn't change anything. Everyone loved it!
I decided to make this with some homemade pasta & it tasted just like the one we get at our favorite Italian restaurant! I used 2 cups of Marsala wine and 1 to 1-1/2 cups stock, and replaced the shallot with 2 cloves minced garlic instead. I think I also used a bit more butter and flour too. This has become one of our favorite recipes!
I love chicken Marsala and this recipe is the best!!
Extremely good except for the fact that I had to thicken my sauce much longer than anticipated. The amount of chicken stock to add should be halved, as should the parsley amount. Other than that, excellent taste.
