    Tomato juice? Why not use Marsala wine? That's what gives it the name AND the flavor.
    And when I make Chicken Marsala, I don't dredge the pieces in flour. It simply isn't necessary for the flavor and will save calories.
    You can thicken the sauce with cornstarch or Wondra at the end if needed. - 11/6/07

    You can add 1/2 cup marsala instead of the chicken broth, if it is marsala you want. Just go to the recipe calculator for the diffence in calories when doing it this way. - 6/20/11

    I liked this recipe. I dont cook with wine...so I didnt miss it. I did substitute tomato juice with V8 because that is what I had on hand. I added a little garlic and oregano...just to my taste. It was a nice change from our usual chicken! - 7/20/09

    Why was this recipe chosen as featured editor's choice, when it really isn't chicken marsala? I was excited to see a "low salt low fat" recipe for this classic dish, and then very disappointed to see that it contained no marsala whatsoever! - 3/10/08

    Marsala wine is used for cooking and gives a distinct flavor. I love the taste of it, with that said this recipe would not interest me as trying to pass it off as chicken Marsala....would be like passing off "chili" without the beans or chili powder as "CHILI" - 10/5/11

    How can this be chicken Marsala without Marsala? Should be called "Faux Chicken Marsala" or "Chicken Marsala-ish".
    I have a low-cal recipe for quick chicken Marsala that is wonderful - I will stick to that. - 8/22/11

    Where is the Marsala Wine? It isn't and can't be called Chicken Marsala if there is no Marsala wine in it! Give it another name!!! - 10/5/11

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • This is not chicken Marsala since it contains no Marsala. For the uninitiated when you cook with wine or any other alcoholic beverage the alcohol disassociates (evaporates) so no longer has any intoxicating property. The loss of the alcohol also significantly reduces the calories. - 10/5/11

  • I just don't know where the "marsala" came from in this recipe. I was hoping to see a low calorie form of marsala since my family has a delicious recipe for the real Marsala but this recipe is nothing like Marsala in any way at all. It may be tasty but the name should be changed... - 6/20/11
