  1. The finished product came out fairly good. Very comforting. But not after I tweaked it. I followed the directions completely but sadly found the sauce bland and wanting. I couldn’t taste the Marsala wine nor any of the other flavors I experience when eating chicken Marsala. So I added more wine, which helped and to compensate for the lack of butter, flour or cream, which is what comprises Marsala sauce, I added some butter. There was way too much liquid to add cream to the finished dish, but next time I make this I will substitute cream of chicken soup with real cream and add some butter along with, of course, increasing the Marsala wine. I also had to add more seasoning to brighten up the flavor. I also used bone-in, skin on thighs and a few drumsticks. Breasts are a no-no. Dry and flavorless. I can’t imagine they can withstand such high temperatures for so long without tasting like shoe leather. Thanks for sharing, Ally.

    1. Kazy…all wonderful edits and tweaks, more like rebuilding and making it creamier, marsaleeeeER and better! Love what you did. I like the idea of more cream. You hit a home run! Thanks for sharing w/me your details. I shall incorporate some of them on my next round! Thank YOU!! oxoxx ~ally
