One of Ben’s favorite meals is chicken marsala – and I have to say, I love it too. The flavors of the marsala with tender chicken and flavorful mushrooms is pretty irresistible. It’s one of his go-to things to order when we go out for dinner. I don’t often order it because I like to try new things, but he loves ordering it. And eating it.

I wanted to turn chicken marsala into a easily holiday dip for entertaining. It’s not as easy as cranberry salsa or say throwing some Velveeta and tomatoes with green chiles in the slow cooker for queso dip, but it’s completely doable and the extra effort pays off in major flavor.

I started by cooking the chicken in Holland House Marsala Cooking Wine to really infuse it with the flavor of marsala. Next, I shredded that chicken, and added a little extra marsala, cream cheese, mayonnaise, and mozzarella cheese. Once that all melts together, you’ll stir in some perfectly browned mushrooms (also with a touch of marsala!). It’s a thick dip perfect for spreading onto toasted french bread slices.

It’s a hearty appetizer that’s perfect for parties where you either only serve appetizers or if there’s going to be a significant amount of time between appetizers and dinners. It’s also the perfect game day appetizer, packed full of chicken and enough to satisfy even the hungriest football fans.

Slow Cooker Chicken Cheese Dip with Marsala and Mushrooms

Yield: 15 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 6 hours

Total Time: 6 hours 10 minutes

This slow cooker chicken cheese dip with marsala tastes like everyone's favorite chicken marsala but in an irresistibly cheesy, dip form. It's a hearty appetizer that's going to be a hit at your next party.

Ingredients:

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1.25 pounds)
  • 1 cup plus 3 tablespoons Holland House Marsala Cooking Wine, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 16 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 8 ounces mozzarella cheese, grated or cubed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, washed and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • French bread sliced and toasted

Directions:

  1. Place chicken breasts, 1 cup Holland House Marsala Cooking Wine, 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper, and dried thyme in a slow cooker. Cook on low for 4 hours and shred. Remove any excess liquid. Return chicken to slow cooker and add cream cheese, mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons Holland House Marsala Cooking Wine, mozzarella cheese. Cook on low for 2 hours or until all ingredients are melted. Stir to combine.
  2. In a frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and saute mushrooms sprinkled with salt and pepper until golden brown. Add 1 tablespoon Holland House Marsala Cooking Wine and cook until wine is reduced and nearly gone. Add mushrooms to dip and stir to combine.
  3. Serve warm with toasted bread.

Verdict: Loved the marsala flavor of this chicken cheese dip – it’s definitely going to make an appearance at future parties.
Husband’s take: He loved this! Even more than I did, maybe. But that’s no surprise considering his love of marsala.
Changes I would make: None are necessary. Have you seen those french bread “boats” with a well carved out of the middle? They’re usually filled with spinach artichoke dip or something similar. I might try that with this dip sometime — it’s nice and thick and would be perfect for that kind of presentation. If you try it, report back and let me know how it is!
Difficulty: easy to moderate
