CHICKEN MARSALA

I loved Italian food long before I met hubby. I’m also a creature of habit. When I find a dish that I absolutely adore I will try it every time I go out to find who makes it best.  Unfortunately for this recipe no one makes it quite like it was originally made and I was forced to make my own recipe.  I also found out that I have to hide the wine or hubby makes it disappear without benefit of the recipe/meal LOL.
