Chicken Marsala

I deleted the good picture but I think
it still looks pretty tasty!
I decided to make this recipe from a fellow blogger for two reasons.  One, I already had some Marsala wine from another recipe I made of his, and two since I was having a guest, and I loved the other recipe, I felt that sure it wouldn't disappoint my friend.  I hate making guests into guinea pigs for new recipes:).  It was wonderful.  Even my son, who hates mushrooms, said the mushrooms were ok.  I made only one deviation; I cooked the chicken, removed it, cooked the mushrooms, added the chicken back to the pan and continued on.  I took the author's suggestion of serving with mashed potatoes.  (I even had his recommended Yukon Gold on hand)  It was perfect.  I would have immediately thought pasta since its an Italian dish, but mashed were outstanding. (better than pasta) We all have our own way of making mashed potatoes.  I am firmly in the camp of using a potato ricer and just stirring with cream and butter. (and salt, pepper, garlic), but that's just me. We also made a salad with the most beautiful, deep green, romaine I have ever seen that we got in out Front Porch Pickings basket.
