Stuffed Chicken Marsala

Курица в Марсале (Stuffed Chicken Marsala)
Stuffed Chicken Marsala is a super popular dish at our local Italian restaurant that I have been loving for years. I decided to recreate it home and the result was absolutely delicious!

The Chicken is juicy from being cooked in Marsala wine, and the stuffing or sun-dried tomatoes and cheese permeates it with flavor from the inside. Mushrooms are also added to the mix to build on the overall flavors of the dish.

Most often I serve the Stuffed Chicken Marsala with mashed potatoes, just like they’re served at the restaurant, but sometimes I like to change it up and serve it with pasta. Regardless of what you serve it with, it will be an impressive dinner!
