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!

One thought on “Crock Pot Chicken Marsala

  1. 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.
