Crock Pot Chicken Marsala has tender chicken breasts covered in a mushroom sauce flavored with Marsala wine. With the crock pot, you can have restaurant quality chicken marsala with hardly any effort. This classic dish really lends itself well to being made in a slow cooker.
There’s hardly any prep time needed for this slow cooker dinner. Boneless chicken breasts along with garlic, thyme, and mushrooms and marsala wine get placed in the crock pot and cooked on low for 5 hours.
The chicken totally soaks up the wonderful sweet flavor of the Marsala wine after spending 5 hours in the crock pot and it is so tender and good. For best results, use a good quality Marsala wine.
After 5 hours, take the chicken out of the crock pot and whisk in a cornstarch slurry along with a little cream and some chicken base to add more flavor to the sauce. Return the chicken and cook on high for 30 minutes. The sauce will thicken up nicely.
Serve over linguine or mashed potatoes for an elegant meal. So easy and good!

Does the alcohol cook off the slow cooker?
Second time making it awesome recipe thanks
Love this recipe easy and delicious
Seriously, just YUM. So easy it’s ridiculous. I’ve already shared this with friends so they can make it.
I work a 12 hour night shift 3 to 4 days a week from 6pm to 6am. Between trying to sleep and have time to prepare and cook meals for work can be a challenge. I have found the crock pot cooking is a great way to prepare meals. Minus the prep time most of the cooking is done while I sleep. I like diversity in my meals. In the past I have always left out any ingredients that were wine or liquor in any recipes. Then I decided to try the wine with this one. OMG…. This was soooo good!!! Everyone love it and it was gone before I realized it and I even doubled the recipe. This is the second time I have cooked this so I saw fit to write a review this time. I am writting this while it cooks. I keep looking at it through the glass lid and smelling the flavor in the air as it cooks. My taste buds have been watering with anticipation. I serve this over linguine. The flavor of this will work with whatever you put it on. Because I’m a bachelor, I tend to try things some people may think are a little weird. Like shredding the chicken and putting it on some bread with a little of the sauce to make a sandwhich. This is a great recipe full of flavor. You have to try it at least once but I know you will want more.
My family loved the recipe. Really a fantastic recipe – every bit of it was enjoyed, even the leftovers. Came out perfect the first time. I was a bit worried as it cooked, because it didn’t have great flavor – but by the time I served it, it was really great. The next time I make it, I will plan to double the recipe, since it went so fast. Also, I did add about a teaspoon of balsamic glaze during cooking for extra flavor.
