I didn't read the reviews on this one - I just really like chicken marsala, so I made the recipe. And it was tasty. I did add more salt, to taste.

Boring recipe. I used a whole 10oz package of fresh mushrooms, upped the marsala to 1 cup, and added about 1/2 cup chopped onion. Even then it wasn't so great. Did seem really salty but that might have been because I used cooking wine rather than regular wine so there was salt added in the wine. I'm up for trying anything once, but I don't think I'll put this one on my menu again.

I found this to be rather bland. I served it with white rice; perhaps that didn't help.

NO one in the family liked this. Guess I'll stay with chicken marsala from now on.

After reading the reviews, I was scared to try it. But it wasn't that bad, though not great, either. I'd use this as a base recipe and work from it, if I had the time.

Not good at all, sorry to say. Came out tasting bland and looking like slop.
