What kind of Marsala wine is best for chicken marsala? Marsala wine has a deep flavor, you can find sweet and dry wine. I used dry version of the wine in my savory recipe but I found few other recipes that use sweet wine as well for the same dish.

What can be used instead of Marsala? You can use any other dry wine, water or any type of broth including chicken, beef or vegetable. If you use water, you might increase a little salt, season more if it’s necessary.
