Chicken Marsala Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 4 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts (item #: 115510 )
  • All-purpose flour, for dredging
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup Extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1/2 cup Sweet Marsala wine
  • 1/2 cup Chicken stock

5 Star Review

“We discovered Passanante’s for the first time at the Indian Land, SC Fall Festival and we are SO happy we did! We had a very thorough and helpful in-home food consultation and from there, we placed our first order. The freezer and food were delivered on a day with terrible weather. The delivery guy was so patient and professional. So far, we have tried the burgers, chicken thighs, salmon, steak, mixed vegetables, and broccoli. Everything is so fresh and the vegetables are so sweet. My favorites so far are the pork chops and salmon. After a few bad experiences with the pork chops and salmon from the big box stores, I stopped eating this all together. I’m really happy I’m able to enjoy this again. Can’t wait to try the other stuff we got!”

5 Star Review

“We love the variety of fish, caught, cleaned, and flash frozen before it gets off the boat. We used to eat a lot of meat, but since joining Passanante’s we’ve reduced the beef and pork and stocked up on the fish and fresh frozen vegetables. We’ve been members for nearly three years now and purchase 95% of all out fish, meat, and vegetables from Passanante’s. We used to get all our food at the Base Commissary and this beats grocery food by a long shot. Everything is flash frozen to preserve all the nutrients and without all the chemicals and antibiotics that are pumped into the food from the grocery chains.”
