Chicken Marsala Soup
This deliciously light Chicken Marsala Soup has all the classic flavours of Chicken Marsala in a bowl.
The earthy combination of fresh mushrooms, green onion, and Marsala wine is a winning combination that is light enough for warm summer day, yet rich enough for a cool fall evening.
And if you pick up a rotisserie chicken from the deli on grocery shop day you can have this homemade dish on the table in less than 30 minutes.
Marsala is a Sicilian wine that is available in both sweet and dry varieties. A good rule of thumb is to use dry versions in savory dishes like this soup. But you can also use a sweeter version if that is what you happen to have on hand.
