One of the beauties of the rotisserie chicken, is its amazing versatility. You can shred the meat and use it for quick enchiladas, chop it for salads, or make something a little more sophisticated like chicken Marsala.
If you’ve never attempted chicken Marsala, you have to try my easy recipe. Now I admit, this isn’t as good as what you’d order in a restaurant, but it’s also on the table in 15 to 20 minutes so there isn’t as much time for the flavor to infuse, but it’s still delicious. For an at-home version using rotisserie chicken, it’s pretty impressive.
I’ve been tweaking this quick Marsala for a while and am finally happy with this dish.
This week, I am focusing on the chicken’s versatility.
