Quick & Easy Chicken Marsala

Do you love eating chicken Marsala at your favorite restaurant? I do! But, we’re not currently going out to eat these days. I’ve made a slower-cooking version of this which is so good. But tonight, I needed dinner quickly! So, this is my quick and super easy (I mean super easy – you microwave the sauce!) way of making it.

Typically, Chicken Marsala has mushrooms. But, do you hate mushrooms like me? I just left them out! But, you can easily add them back in. Just throw them in the skillet before cooking the chicken until they start to soften. Then keep going with the recipe as is! Enjoy!
