Delicious. The sauce is the star. I made one change, using boneless, skinless thighs instead of breasts. The perfect dish for the day of our big ice storm, when going out was impossible.

Delicious and quite easy considering how good it is. It was fabulous with hot buttered noodles and peas for a side!

I love marsala anything, so this recipe caught my attention right away. But I only noticed that this was a slowcooker recipe at 4:00 PM which left me with no time to prepare ahead so I made it using stove top method, finishing the sauce at the end portion. It came out fab! Next time I will make it in the crockpot because I love the ease of crockpot cooking. Thank you breezer for sharing. Made it for FTT.

after looking at the other reviews I cut my cooking time back the 3 hours on low and still found our skinless chicken breast halves were very dry but other than that the flavours were well received' Thank you breezermom, posted for Pick Me Tag Game.

The flavour of the mushrooms was wonderful in this recipe. I found that the chicken was a little overcooked, but it still tasted lovely. Next time I will cut the cooking time down. Served with mashed potato's this made for a lovely dinner served on a cold winter's night.
