  1. Hi! I really want to try this Chicken Marsala recipe, but I have two questions – what size package of mushrooms, and what size package chicken breasts? Thank you!

    1. Hi there, you can use 2-3 chicken breasts, (about 1 per person) and as many mushrooms as you like. I usually gauge around 1/2 cup of mushrooms per person.
      Hope that helps! It’s a delicious recipe so please enjoy!

  2. I put onions in almost everything, and didn’t mention them, but use them of course, and Papa does not care for rice, and I love it…..It is good either way….glad you tried it….

  3. I LOVE Rice, and agree, BUT hubby does not care for it, hard for me to comprehend but true..AND, the 1st thing he said, “what no onions”..??? That was the 1st time I made it, and definitely will use Onions the next time…<3

    I made it but with a few variations. Was very nice but think I would serve it with rice next time. Added cream, onions and paprika.

      1. The thing I love about this, is you can add or subtract what you like, and don’t like….such a great recipe, and so glad that several have liked when they tried it…It is for sure, a Keeper..Making it for our almost 23 yr. old granddaughter who will spend a couple of nights w/ us next week, as she loves it…Hi to everyone..<3 Nanny Pat
