Keto Chicken Marsala is a classic Italian-American dish with chicken breast, almond flour, butter, mushrooms, shallots, garlic, wine, and heavy cream.
Chicken Marsala is an Americanized dish that is a variation of a traditional Italian scaloppina dish. It is super easy to make at home and the sauce is exceptional. This Chicken Marsala pairs very spaghetti.
The chicken needs to be as thin as it can be. You can buy them thin or slice the cutlets horizontally and pound them, either works.
Can you drink the Marsala wine?
I personally do not like sweet wine, but if you do, Marsala wine is not just a cooking wine. Go for it!
What wine should I pair with Chicken Marsala?
You are better off pairing the chicken Marsala with a full bodied white wine like Chardonnay. A red wine will only overwhelm the sweetness of the Marsala wine.
