The first time I ate chicken marsala was after losing a bet to a friend. If I won the bet, he had to make me dinner but if I lost I had to make dinner. Needless to say I lost. I made a really, really bad bet. I’m almost too embarrassed to say but you can share in my humiliation. I said Brad Pitt was older than George Clooney. A first glance I know you are thinking this was a terrible bet! And yes it is because George Clooney is in fact older than Brad Pitt, BUT only by two measly years. Another fun fact, today is good ol’ Brad Pitt’s 50th birthday! What?! I am in still in shock.
Anyways, I loved this dish the first time I made it, and it became one of my go-to “fancy” dinners. My love of this dish actually made me wary of turning it paleo. I’m so glad I finally took the plunge! I loved how this paleo chicken marsala turned out. I went on a big limb and decided not to bread it with any paleo-approved breading. I really wanted the sauce to shine. If you don’t want to use the wine, you can use chicken or beef broth but the flavors will be different.
