Insanely Easy Chicken Marsala Recipe With Fresh Thyme

Chicken or Steak Marsala is one of those dishes that I have to order if it’s on the menu when we go out to eat.

Never in a million years did I think I could not only duplicate it, but exceed the taste of my favorite restaurant dish.

Our Insanely Easy Chicken Marsala with Fresh Thyme is a rich and savory dish. I always make the Chicken or Steak Marsala with mashed potatoes and a lightly roasted vegetable such as green beans or zucchini.

If you’re a fan of Chicken Marsala and would like to grow your own fresh thyme, we share simple steps on How to Grow Thyme.

Would you tell us what brand of Marsala wine that you use. I tried one before and did not like the outcome

Honestly, we don't have a large selection here locally. I just buy whatever Marsala wine I can get my hands on. Which I know is taboo in the cooking world. My brother, who is a chef, preaches to never use a wine you wouldn't drink. I don't drink, lol. Florio Marsala is a good one to use. They have sweet and dry. Use the dry for more savory recipes such as this.
