This slow-cooker chicken Marsala recipe gets its full flavor from plenty of mushrooms and fragrant shallots. Whole-wheat pasta soaks up the rich sauce. Round it out with a simple green salad for a comforting healthy dinner. Source:, December 2019

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk flour and 1/2 cup broth in a small bowl until smooth. Combine the flour mixture, mushrooms, shallots, Marsala, thyme and the remaining 1/2 cup broth in a 6-quart slow cooker. Arrange chicken in a single layer in the slow cooker; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover and cook on Low until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest portion of the chicken registers 165 degrees F, 3 hours to 3 hours, 30 minutes.

  • Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Serve the chicken over the pasta. Top with the Marsala sauce and sprinkle with parsley.
