Chicken Marselena With Pepperoni

My MIL is here tonight, so my darling 11 year old son is cooking again tonight.  He did most of this, but he was getting spattered a lot during the sauteing of the chicken, so my very tall husband, with his face much further from the 'spitting cauldron of burning oil', took over for some of that.  But, other than that, my son made this by himself.  I offered him the post, but I figured I would do some, and if he wanted to add to it, he could.  This was a very tasty dish.  If I were to nit pick anything, and it was in no way related to flavor, it was that there is no mention of provolone in the ingredients, but at the end of the recipe it said put the cheese over it and let melt.  The cheese wasn't necessary, as the sauce was so very good, but we put it on anyways.  The chicken was tender and yummy, but the sauce stole the show for me.  The boys couldn't decide which they liked better and my MIL asked for the recipe so she could make it for a friend.  As with all recipes I get from my fellow bloggers, I put a link to the original site and just a list of what's in it so you know what to expect.  I would strongly advocate for searching out real marsala wine and not the cooking variety.  They add so much salt to questionable quality wine to make it legal to sell it as not alcohol, and that will make your end dish too salty.  I would rather add the salt myself and have the better wine in it.  I also couldn't decide which picture looked best so I put three:)
