Can I do chicken marsala without marsala wine? Will any red do?
The flavor would be totally different. Marsala is much closer to sherry.
I have sherry at home. Would that work instead?
I've done it millions of times. It won't be chicken marsala tho.
not chicken marsala ... chicken sherry.
You can try another sweet wine like Madeira.
Yeah, Madeira or a sweet sherry will probably work well.
I ended up using sherry. It turned out okay, but I'm too much of an amature cook to improvise as much as I did. It was a little bland (I used the sherry, mushrooms, lemon juice, butter, salt, and pepper).
Try adding angustura bitters to the sherry. It's the bitters/herbs in marsala that make it so different and flavorful. Let us know how it turns out.
