Baked Chicken Marsala

So I’m still sorta doing the pantry challenge…using up what I find…and everything in this meal came from the pantry/freezer minus the broccoli!

One of my dear friends moved to Alaska not long ago…and she left me with a few of her goodies from her pantry…including the Marsala cooking wine you see below!!!  Not something I normally buy, but after this meal…I’d totally buy it! I finally remembered to look at the price at the store, so I’d know how much it would have cost…so here you go…
