I agree that with Chicken Marsala this might not quite work but with a nice roasted chicken it would probably be delish!

Sounds like a good decision. I'd go wih noodles too. Some how marsala doesn't go well with potato in my book, and I normaly love potato.

I went with pasta - the rotelli, or rotini, or whatever the corkscrew one is. Just placed the chicken marsala over the naked pasta, Jeeks, so there was no mixing of sauces.

lol....sounds like I would have enjoyed dinner at your home.

I had chicken marsala once at an expensive restaurant once, and it came with a side of spaghetti and marinara.....on the same dish.

Since then, I have vowed NOT to mix sauces. I don't know what it is, or what compells me to do it, but it just seems wrong. I like for one item to be "The Star" and the sides to compliment it.

My one tip for cooking marsala is: Don't be skimpy on the Marsala!

Agreed... IMHO i feel like the chicken marsala should be served alone. when i make it i'll usually have 2 courses. i'll start with a pasta salad or hearty thick soup, then follow with the marsala and of course some bread to soak up all the yumminess....

Jeekinz, where you from in jersey?

I like mashed potatoes or creamy polenta.

There are a lot of flavors going on in Chicken Marsala, so I would keep the starch simple.
