  1. Excited about this recipe! Once you open this, do you add additional ingredients? We are watching Hurricane Elsa and once it is past, this is going to be canned at my house! Thank you for the video!

    • I just thicken it slightly with a cornstarch slurry and that’s it!

      • Jeni, I made this today for our lunch. One pint of the canned chicken marsala, 1/2 pint of the sauce (which I had leftover from canning this,) one pound of additional Bella mushrooms, one medium onion and about 1/4 cup half and half used as a finishing sauce. UNREAL GOOD! We are counting carbs and this recipe is so flavorful we will be making much more to make this meal again! I sautéed the extra mushrooms and onions first in 2 T. butter, removed them from pan, added 2 more T. of butter and flour to make roux, added all the sauce, let it thicken about 10 min. Then add the canned chicken, onions and mushrooms back to pan. Simmer about 5 minutes and remove from heat. Finish with cream (or half and half) and stir. Absolutely fabulous low carb, high flavor meal for two! Thank you for this fabulous recipe and video!

    What brand of marsala wine do you use?

  3. Jeni, I made 7 pints of this recipe yesterday. I used “sweet” Marsala wine…is it salvageable? I did not know there was sweet or dry Marsala. Should I have used dry?Any suggestions?

  4. Hi Jeni

    I made a batch of chicken marsala this morning. Will let you how we like it when we open one to try it

    Thanks for sharing
