Wine sauce drizzled over tasty chicken breast and angel hair pasta. How To Make Chicken Marsala. in a nutshell.

You had me at wine.

From Wikipedia:

Marsala wine is frequently used in cooking and is especially prevalent in Italian restaurants in the United States. A typical Marsala sauce, for example, involves reducing the wine almost to a syrup with onions- or-shallots- then adding mushrooms and herbs. One of the most popular Marsala recipes is in which flour-coated pounded chicken breast halves are braised in a mixture of Marsala, butter, olive oil, mushrooms, and spices.

And then.

And then I read that you also make desserts with this sweeter wine. So there is a dessert using Marsala coming sometime soon.
