What makes this recipe so great?

The star of the show is the chicken, but the flavor is all about the rest of the ingredients. Let’s start with this ingredient, as it is a key part, but you can use other meat too. Some good ideas include turkey breast, ground turkey, chopped beef, tilapia, or even tuna.

As for the Portobello mushrooms, not only are these very healthy and great for your body, but they also add tons of flavor. You can change them, though, for any other mushrooms, or even use things like green beans, zucchini, potatoes, or chickpeas.

When it comes to the sun-dried tomatoes, they are full of antioxidants, and protect your heart and brain, while making your bones stronger. However, feel free to replace them with cherry tomatoes, canned tomatoes, tomato paste, or tomato sauce. If you don’t like tomatoes at all, then use foods like red bell peppers or red onions.

Finally, the spinach is what adds crunch and green to this dish, but it is also a great source of vitamin K. You can change it for other greens, such as bok choy, mustard greens, or even asparagus.

To finish, the Marsala wine makes the dish what it is, but if you can’t find any, there are some solutions. We suggest you try dry sherry, port wine, or even a bit of red cooking wine with a dash of honey or brown sugar.

What are you waiting for? Put on your chef’s hat and make your family feel like they are dining at a gourmet restaurant.
