    The calorie count is WAY off..A rough estimate and quick math:
    4 Chicken breast (5 oz each) 600 cal
    3 Tb butter 300 cal
    1/4 C flour 120 cal
    4 oz wine -100 cal
    mushrooms, onions, broth- all combined 100 cal
    That's over 1200 right there, so for 4 servings, its 300/serv
    And NO pasta added yet!:(

    actually, if you read the directions, it's 2 chicken breasts cut in half to make the chicken marsala...A full chicken breast is WAY too much!

    Great modification- however the calorie count is a bit off. Even if you are only using 8 oz. chicken that would be 250 divided by 4=
    62.recipe lists as 39 so add 23 there, also 4 oz Marsala =8Tbsp.
    which would add another 23 cal per serving so roughly 238.6 per
    serving. Added fresh garlic,YUM!

    I used dry sherry as a substitute for marsala.....I decided that I must have marsala to make this dish. Dr sherry just does not cut it at all!! - 2/18/20
