Chicken Marsala with Gorgonzola Recipe

We live near the Faribault, Minnesota caves that are used to age the lovely Amableu Gorgonzola cheese. Chicken topped with melting Gorgonzola is quick enough for weeknight cooking but also elegant enough for a dinner party. —Jill Anderson, Sleepy Eye, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon salt, divided

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese, divided

"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."

"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!"

"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!!"

"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."
