The warmer weather is finally here and that means more time on the grill and less time meal prepping inside! This easy Slow Cooker Chicken Marsala recipe is super quick to prep, you get a lot of bang for your buck, and the macros are awesome!

Start this one by trimming the fat off of 3 pounds of chicken breast and cutting them in half lengthwise (around 1/4” thick).

Season those pieces with a little salt & pepper, add some oil into a pan, and cook your chicken on both sides for a couple minutes. This is optional but preferred.

Optionally line your slow cooker for easy clean up and add your chicken into it.

Follow that with 1 cup of chicken broth, 1 tablespoon of minced garlic, 1 cup of marsala cooking wine, and 2-3 cups of some sliced mushrooms (I like a mix of portobello and white).

Throw your lid on and slow cook your slow cooker chicken marsala on low heat for around 4 hours if you cooked it or 5 hours if you didn’t.

After 4 hours

Remove your chicken and mix together 8 tablespoons of corn starch and 2/3 cup of water. Pour that in with 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning and mix everything together until smooth.

Put your chicken back in and slow cook it on high heat for 30-40 minutes or until your sauce thickens up.

Add and lightly mix in 1/2 cup of heavy cream, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper.

I usually portion this slow cooker chicken marsala out into 6 servings and each serving is usually around 500 grams. This number can vary so just use it as a rough estimate!

    Yo man disregard the above I figured it out. Haha! I use 3 cups water instead of 2/3cup. And forgot the chicken broth.

    Hey Derek,

    This was the first meal of yours I made. I didn’t even eat it yet but can’t wait. It smells and looks tasty.

    One question though. I followed everything right, I think, and the sauce never thickened up. When I added the cream it was like adding it to soap.

    What did I mess up? Thanks pal!

    You could be so much bigger if you just did a couple of things differently, you literally hold more value than 95% of the fitness industry.

    Dish is crazy btw !!
