Chicken Marsala

July 18, 2017Katie

We just returned from a wonderfully long visit to my family in Michigan where we ate out a lot.  However, my mom made sure that one night we stayed home and had my favorite meal when I’m there – my Dad’s famous grilled steaks and fresh and juicy Michigan sweet corn on the cob.

I was ready to get back to puttering around my kitchen when I got home creating new flavors and dishes. This process brings me incredible relaxation and enjoyment and makes my heart happy. Sitting down with Mr. Wonderful over a delicious meal and talking about our day is just such my comfort zone.

Sitting down with Mr. Wonderful while he gushes about how much he loves a dish is particularly pleasurable which was the case last night as we savored this the flavors of a umami laden sauce with juicy mushrooms and Marsala wine over chicken just kissed with a splash of cream for a bit of indulgence. I DID opt not to bread and fry the chicken like some do but after grilling to nestle it back into the sauce where it would tenderize and become lusciously moist and indulgent.

“This one’s a keeper”, he murmured through bites of tender chicken over brown rice spaghetti.


And I was so incredibly thankful I’d made enough for leftovers.
