Ben and I love chicken marsala. Especially Ben. He’s one of those guys that orders the same thing every time we go to certain restaurants. I’m the opposite, I like to try something new every time. Sometimes I get in a rut after I have something that is so delicious that I can’t help but to order it every time. Then I’ll get antsy and feel like I need to try something else, which in those cases I end up regretting 75% of the time. So maybe Ben has the right idea – find something you love and stick with it. Don’t be swayed by new and fancy menu items. I’m always swayed. But I just love trying new things that catch my eye. (I will note that if you’re at a nicer restaurant, then you’re safer ordering something other than your standard fave. If it’s a not-so-great average chain restaurant, if you find something you love, it’s probably a good idea to stick with it.)

But he might be on to something with the chicken marsala. The flavors of the marsala wine, chicken, and mushrooms — yum. It’s such a classic and winner of a dish. But if I had to choose one thing – chicken or the mushrooms, I’d choose the mushrooms. I’m a huge mushroom lover, especially if they are roasted like in this recipe. So I decided to combine two of my favorite things: roasted mushrooms and marsala — and so these marsala roasted mushrooms were born.

Verdict: Obsessed.

Husband’s take: He was eating these straight off the pan.

Changes I would make: None are necessary. These have a fairly mild marsala flavor, so if you do want to kick it up a notch, feel free to add more marsala cooking wine.

Difficulty: Super easy.

  6. LOVE marsala mushrooms! They make an appearance at least once a week at our house!

  7. I am with your husband — I would fork them straight out of the pan! And I would add a splash more marsala! YUM!

  8. If I’m going to a chain I’m like Ben. I find something I love and I almost never deviate. My favorite nice restaurants are always changing their menu so I never get the opportunity to try the same thing twice because they always switch it up on me…haha. I love the look of these mushrooms. I have always been a mushroom lover but have never tried them cooked in marsala. This must change!

  9. Yum! So lucky to live close to the mushroom capital–Kennett Square, PA! I can get the freshest mushrooms all the time.

  10. I have recently been on a marsala chicken myself – I hear ya, Ben! I think I could make these roasted marsala mushrooms right now, before my kids get off the bus, and I wouldn’t even have to share… ;-)

  11. So delicious and so versatile. These would go with anything.

  12. These look amazing Rachel – so simple yet I’m sure so full of flavor!

  13. I agree with your husband, these would never make it out of the pan. I would eat the entire dish. Maybe I’ll make these tonight :)

  14. Um….yes please. I love this recipe!!

  15. So simple, yet delicious! I love marsala as well, it adds so much wonderful flavor and pairs so well with mushrooms. Love this side dish :)

  16. I could eat mushrooms every single day. LOVE!

  17. I love the mellow flavor that roasted mushrooms add to any dish or meal. Adding the marsala is brilliant. I’ll be making this soon for sure.
