Marsala (mahr-SAH-lah), either sweet or dry, is a popular Sicilian wine that's primarily used in cooking and desserts. The dark wine is fortified with alcohol and has smoky flavor. It adds richness to this quick chicken dinner.

4 stars delicious, will make again. Would have been 5 stars but boy, do you need more sauce, especially if you serve w/linguine (I did and & it was delicious). Next time 1 will make 4X (4 times!) the amount of sauce, which needs a little salt & pepper, too. No Marsala? Use 1 teaspoon brandy per every 1/4 cup of dry while wine.
