Recipe: January 2012/Week 1

Slow Cooker Chicken Marsala
{next time, I will try to remember to take a picture!}

Prep Time: 10 Min
Total Time: 5 Hr 25 Min
Makes: 8 servings


cloves garlic, finely chopped
tablespoon vegetable oil
boneless skinless chicken breasts
teaspoon salt
teaspoon pepper
jars (6 oz each) Green Giant® sliced mushrooms, drained
cup sweet Marsala wine or Progresso® chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
cup water
cup cornstarch
tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


1Spray 4- to 5-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. In cooker, place garlic and oil. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper; place in cooker over garlic. Place mushrooms over chicken; pour wine over all.2Cover; cook on Low heat setting 5 to 6 hours.3Remove chicken from cooker; place on plate and cover to keep warm. In small bowl, mix water and cornstarch until smooth; stir into liquid in cooker. Increase heat setting to High; cover and cook about 10 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened.4Return chicken to cooker. Cover; cook on High heat setting 5 minutes longer or until chicken is hot.5To serve, spoon mushroom mixture over chicken breasts; sprinkle with parsley.

This recipe was super easy.... but I did have some difficulty with the sauce itself, it didn't thicken and I had to thicken it in a saucepan with some flour.... and I did not use the parsley, I forgot about it. Doy.  I put it over garlic mashed potatoes which helped spruce up the flavor. When re-heated, the sauce got gelatin-like and I wasn't a fan of that, otherwise it re-heated just fine. You're probably going to be seeing a lot of slow cooker recipes from me for a while.... I like to do them on the weekends!!!! This weekend it's going to be a slow cooker chicken stroganoff!!! 



  1. OMG... sounds so yummy! You need a tab at the top of your blog to save all these recipes to (so I can find them easily!)

  2. I definitely need to use my slow cooker more - so handy! Thanks for the recipe!
