Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Marsala is an amber-colored wine from Sicily, with a flavor similar to, but richer than sherry. Marsala can be dry or sweet.
  • tip 2
    Make sure to use sweet Marsala in this chicken dish. Dry Marsala makes this dish too acidic.
  • tip 3
    Serve this creamy chicken with cooked fettuccine pasta.
