Chicken Marsala

I'm pretty excited, not because it's Friday, but I'm pretty excited to share this delicious chicken Marsala recipe with you! This has been on my baking list for a good month now. This recipe is to-die-for! Out of this world chicken. This recipe is pretty simple, so if you get pretty busy in the evening or are heading out with friends later, this is the recipe for you. This chicken is succulent and moist, so don't be afraid to double the recipe and invite guests over.
