Chicken Marsala with Gorgonzola

I like Chicken Marsala and I think this is about the third recipe I have made in the last 2 years.  This one caught my eye because it had a bit of heavy cream - and what doesn't taste good with that!  I'm also a fan of gorgonzola cheese - and as you can see it has a yellow tinge to it... unlike blue cheese which is more white.  Comparing the 2, this has a stronger flavor.  Another nice feature, with about 30 minutes this goes from prep to table!

 The DIY guy really enjoyed dinner this night and quickly claimed the leftovers for himself!

I hope you enjoy and let me know if you give it a try!

  1. This looks delicious, I do love Gorgonzola but hubby isn't a fan. This is something I would order at a restaurant. We don't have alcohol in our home but I do love Chicken Marsala. Cheesecake Factory has a yummy Chicken Marsala dish--looks a lot like yours.
    If I visited you would you fix it for dinner??

  2. This sounds and looks amazing, yum!
