Today I share with you what I made for dinner on Monday night. I had read The Pioneer's Woman's post on Chicken Piccata, and I was instantly longing for Buca's Chicken Marsala. Have you had it? If you have, you know what I mean, about the longing part.
I had tried to recreate it at home before, but the supposed copycat recipe just wasn't the same. It called for dry Marsala wine, which I dutifully used, but the flavor of the restaurant's dish, with just a hint of sweetness in the sauce, was not there. So yesterday I did some on-line sleuthing and found one that seemed close, and I toodled on down to Trader Joe's for a bottle of sweet Marsala wine, and got busy.
As I casually calculated the fat calories in my head, I knew this would be a night we would need a long walk after dinner. But oh, was it worth it. Here are the recipes:
Buca's Chicken Marsala (there's even a video-if you want to watch how to make it)
Buca's Garlic Mashed Potatoes
