The breading really absorbs all the great flavors in this chicken marsala. The wine adds a bit of sweetness, while the cheese and mushrooms add some nuttiness. As you sit down to eat this delicious dish, you feel like you're sitting in a fancy restaurant. It's very impressive but super simple to make!
