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.
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!
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!
I made this tonight for dinner for my self. I' am a diet so this was great for me now I have left over to have for lunch etc. This is the first time I had Chicken Marsala and I thought it was great. I would diffenitaly make again
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"

I have a low-cal recipe for quick chicken Marsala that is wonderful - I will stick to that." />
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.
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.
Not sure what this IS but i know what it isn't. A little bell pepper and onion maybe some garlic and you are getting close to a Cacciatore but the only thing this has in common with Chicken Marsala is Chicken
wonderful! Every tiem I cook with wine none of us like it....this is a nice recipe for those who do not use alcohol and there are alcoholics in my extended family so this one is a winner for me
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...
I don't drink or have it in my house so I thought this recipe was very good.I did add a tsp. of garlic and a half a cup of green peppers .I also serbed it over whole wheat spaghetti.Will make again
Where is the Marsala wine that the recipe gets its name from? I also wouldn't use flour - just brown the chicken in a little olive oil...I have a better recipe that I found on Sparkpeople for Chicken Marsala - I'll stick with that!
