I was recently asked to create a recipe using Colombo wine for their 12 Days of Marsala Recipe Challenge. I decided to put my twist on Chicken Marsala and make a Chicken Ravioli Marsala. I used store-bought chicken and mozzarella ravioli and whipped up a wild mushroom marsala sauce. This was so simple and tasted like something you would eat in a restaurant. The hardest part of this recipe was waiting on the sauce to reduce.
Colombo makes a sweet and a dry marsala wine. I used the sweet marsala wine in this recipe. We thought it was perfect. Chicken Legs raved about this dish. He loves mushrooms, so this was right up his alley. This was better than any Chicken Marsala either of us had in a restaurant, and it was on the table in about 30 minutes! You should double this recipe and serve it to company; they will love you for it! No need to tell them how easy it was. That can be our little secret. 😉
