This Italian staple creates a wonderful mix of sweet wine and earthy mushrooms. In our Slow Cooker Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken Marsala, we kept with the traditional Marsala flavors, but added tangy sun-dried tomatoes for a pop of flavor and color. As delicious as it is healthy! Instead of loading our sauce with butter as some recipes call for, we allow the slow cooker to bring the ingredients together.
We recommend serving this Marsala over whole grain pasta or brown rice with a nice glass of wine. Yum! You get to enjoy a delicious Italian meal without having to leave the comfort of your own home or pay fancy Italian restaurant prices.
