  1. Can I thicken the sauce by adding a bit of flour

  1. This is definitely a superior recipe than Olive Garden's. I almost followed the recipe exactly except that I noticed prior to preparing the ingredients there was no thickener in the sauce portion of the ingredients list. The absence of a thickener for the sauce undoubtedly will result in a runny watery sauce. I mixed 4 tablespoons of cooking Marsala wine into a heaping tablespoon of starch, cut the heat from the simmering sauce and allow to cool down about 1-2 minutes and add the starch mix to the sauce while stirring. The recipe is now perfected!


  2. The recipe was easy to make. I also chopped up additional mushrooms in the food processor and added them to the stuffing. It give it a little more body. Also instead of the heavy cream, I used half and half. It reduces well enough, but it takes a considerable amount of time to reduce down and I also used cornstarch to thicken it. If you look at the picture listed, that sauce looks pretty watery. Overall my wife and I enjoyed it and will make it again.

  3. Haven't tried the chicken marsala at Olive Garden but this recipe is to DIE for! We used a shallot and a bit of onion, Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, and 2 cups of chicken stock + 1 Cup of the marsala. Had to add cornstarch water to sauce since it was still too liquidy. We also sprinkled salt and garlic powder into the sauce for a bit more flavor. There was just a bit of cheese mixture left after stuffing so we sprinkled the leftover onto breasts before putting into oven. The 6 large breasts took about 45 minutes to cook through so we cooked them uncovered the first 25 minutes and then covered with foil and cooked the last 20 minutes. We didn't pound the chicken down thin so maybe this is why it took so long to cook. Anyway we were blown away with how fantastic it was!!! Thanks for submitting this!


  4. Everything was awesome. Few things to note, when putting stuffing mix into a bowl mix by hand until like a paste. Now the sauce uses 24oz. Of wine , an entire bottle. It takes a while to reduce to half so don't be nervous, its not thick but tasty, if you want it thicker allow it to boil down more.


  5. Made exactly as written and it turned out perfectly! I forgot to take a picture while plated, so it's in Tupperware for tomorrow's lunch ??
