    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!

  • Excellent meal. I also think the calorie count is off, but it is still a great low cal dish. I added fresh garlic for a little more flavor when cooking the mushrooms. - 3/21/11

  • A little bland (maybe some oregano would help) & I'm not sure how to fit 2 chicken breasts in a 12 inch skillet, but very nice never-the-less! Thanks for sharing! - 4/4/10

  • My family and I loved this dish! We've made it twice now and it's turned out perfectly every time. I doubt the calories are as low as the recipe says but haven't done my own calculation yet...I'm betting it's closer to 400 and that's how I'm entering it on my nutrition tracker. - 5/17/09

  • I love Chicken Marsala but I prefer mine with mashed potatoes... Maybe I can do it with mashed cauliflower (Same taste and texture as potatoes, just healthier!) Thanks for the recipe! :) - 4/1/09
