What is Chicken Marsala?

It is an Italian-American dish made from tender chicken pieces such as breasts or boneless skinless thighs, mushrooms, garlic or shallots, and of course marsala wine. It generally served with pasta or rice because of its enough creamy sauce, also served with whole roasted garlic.

Below is the easy low carb slow cooker creamy chicken marsala, for the one pan stovetop version, see the recipe card.

  • Heat a pan over medium heat, add butter/oil and brown the chicken breasts on both sides (about 3 minutes per side). Remove and set aside.
  • On the same pan, add little more oil and saute the mushrooms for a few minutes (the above two steps are totally optional, but recommended to give it more creamy flavor)
  • Grease the butter/olive oil to the base of the slow cooker. Add the browned chicken (or raw) to the bottom of the pot.
  • Add mushrooms, seasonings and pour the marsala wine over the top.
  • Secure the lid and cook on high for 3-4 hours or until chicken is cooked and the internal temperature reads 155 degrees. (check the reading from a meat thermometer)
  • Once done, remove the chicken and mushrooms from the slow cooker. Stir in xanthan gum and cream (optional).
  • Add the chicken and mushrooms back to the pot and cook for another 20-30 minutes, until chicken is fully cooked (reaches 165 degrees) and the sauce thickened.
  • Serve!
