Reviews for Chicken Marsala with Gorgonzola
"MY husband and I both loved it. So good and so easy."
"My boyfriend found this recipe and made it for himself while I was out of town. He raved about it and said he was going to force me to try it. I've had other chicken marsala's before and haven't liked them. Well he made me try it tonight and I don't think I've ever had a better chicken dish in my life. Simply amazing. So savory and just delicious! He is allergic to gorgonzola cheese so be used a really good fresh parmesan instead. Spectacular! I'm super impressed."
"I loved this recipe. Can't wait to make it again."
"I used beef broth instead of the wine and just a little moz. Cheese."
"We made this using ruby port instead of marsala wine, and added some of the port into the pan while the chicken was still cooking.It turned out great! The sauce has almost a sweet flavor to it, and it complemented the chicken very well!"
"Excellent. Definitely a keeper!"
"So easy and delicious!!!!"
"This recipe was fabulous. I added sauted onions and sundried tomatoes."
"Just wanted to add another note. I did not use any of the salt it called for because between the cheese and the wine there is more than enough salt."
"My husband and I absolutely love this recipe. I make it quite frequently. It is delicious!!! Just a little note. Instead of mincing the garlic I pressed the garlic with a garlic press and it worked very very well and actually gave the dish more garlic flavor and it was delicious!!"
"My husband and I both really enjoyed this. It's going in our "keeper" recipe file. We'll definitely make it again."
"this is really easy and fast. I made it with dry vermouth instead of the marsala and just regular button mushrooms. A standby recipe in out family now."
"Fantastic recipe! My family loved it!"
"It's hard to give this an accurate rating because in my case, it was extremely salty. I realize that might be my fault, as I salted the mushrooms slightly as I cooked them, not realizing the "cooking wine" I got from the store also had a lot of salt in it. If using that type of wine, omit all other salt. I think it would have been excellent if not for that."
"I'm wondering what I did wrong because I wasn't impressed."
"This was soooo good! I have made it every week for the last month."
"This dish was superb! My entire family devoured it. I served it over rice and had biscuits on the side with a salad. This recipe is definitely a keeper!"
"Of all the taste of home recipes I have made this is by far the best!!!"
