tasty and easy meal

Tried this recipe yesterday. Since it was on the spur of the moment, I had to adapt the recipes to my ingredients. I didn't wrap the chicken with prosciutto since no prosciutto. Used regular button mushrooms, Used 1/3 amount of dried oregano since no fresh. Even mistakenly put in broth before marsala. Despite this the dish was good. Had no trouble with getting sauce to thicken. My husband and I enjoyed this quick and easy meal. I will try creminis next time. Not sure about the prosciutto--not a fan.

Looks and tastes like a fancy dinner

I have to say, this is one of the tastiest Eating Well recipes I've made lately. Even my 6 year old daughter loved it. It was packed with flavor and you would never know this was a light or healthy version of this dish. I served mine by putting the sauce in the bottom of a dish and placing the chicken on top, and it looked pretty enough for company. The sauce was delicious, and there was enough to put on mashed potatoes or pasta as well as the chicken. I may have rolled my chicken thighs up too tightly in the prosciutto (mine were rounder than the photo), but they were nowhere near cooked through by cooking in the pan alone. After I took them out of the pan, I covered mine with foil and put them in the oven at 350 degrees while I made the sauce, and they were perfect by then. I will definitely make this again. Superb!

Fairly easy to prepare, lots of flavor
Simple meat and potatoes dish

I followed the recipe exactly and it turned our perfectly. I managed to find the Marsala and it is delicious. I learned that it is a desert wine as well and tastes wonderful on its own, so worth the purchase for this dish and as a treat after. I served with mashed potatoes and green beans as suggested. As the others have stated there was plenty of sauce! Good enough to serve to company on a week-night.

Easy and semi-fancy
Easy and Tasty!

This was a very simple and quick recipe. I followed it exactly and it turned out fabulous! I served it with mashed potatoes and green beans as suggested and it's near the top of the favorites list for my family now! No butter needed in the mashed potatoes. We had plenty of extra sauce that we poured over the top of the potatoes.


The whole family (myself, husband, 12 y.o. daughter) greatly enjoyed this dinner! I used baby bella mushrooms and had to add a little extra cornstarch to thicken the sauce, but otherwise followed the recipe for an amazing result! Served with butterless mashed potatoes (no need for butter with this sauce!) and green beans. Absolutely delicious!

Easy to make, seems like a lot more effort than it is
