Helpful hints

  • Substitute 1/2 cup pasta with garlic and olive oil for rice if desired.
  • Olivio® Premium Spread is a vegetable oil and olive oil blend made into a spread similar to trans fat-free margarine. One tablespoon contains 80 calories, 8 g fat, 0 g trans fat, 0 cholesterol, 95 mg sodium.  If unavailable in your area substitute a similar soft tub spread.
  • If another wine is substituted, this dish becomes Chicken with Wine, as it will no longer have the distinct flavor provided by the Marsala wine.
  • This recipe is suitable for those on a lower protein diet if the portion of chicken is decreased to match their meal plan.

Chicken Marsala
Brendapa says:

Is this recipe for those already on dialysis? I haven't tried this, so my rating is invalid, but I couldn't submit my question without a rating. Dietitian comment: Yes because it is high in protein. Ic can be used by a person with CKD on a lower protein diet if the portion size is decreased.

Is there something that can be used instead of the wine? Dietitian comment: I did find a substitute suggestion but as called out, you will no longer have Chicken Marsala without the Marsala wine. The suggested substitute is 1/4 cup white grape juice, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract (seems like a lot), and 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar. I have not tried this so cannot speak to the taste.

I cook a lot of these recipes for my mom (CKD). She loves this one! She puts it over pasta. Can use chicken thighs if you like dark meat (moister) chicken.

This chicken was delicious. I enjoyed the "light" sauce. The shallets and mushrooms really enhanced this dish.

something is wrong with the recipe. I think you should add the liquids to the chicken wit the flour so they can thicken? the way it's written, it is very very thin because the liquids are poured over the chicken just before serving and not very good at all.

Great recipe & provides a pleasing presentation as well as flavor. I used the "sweet" not dry marsala wine.

Tasteless. But, if served with something sweet like applesauce, it's ok. Nothing like real chicken marsala.
