Chicken Marsala is a staple at most restaurants, especially in Syracuse where there is a large amount of Italian American restaurants and a history of Italian American immigrants.
You can trace the history of Chicken Marsala back to the 19th century where it is believed that English families created the dish as a use for the marsala wine that was popular in Sicily at the time. One method of making Chicken Marsala is flouring the chicken and sautéing the chicken then using the Marsala wine to make a reduction and pouring the reduction over the chicken.
Traditionally speaking, you would normally find Chicken Marsala served with a pasta and possibly a vegetable. At Dolce Vita we serve our Chicken Marsala with creamy mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables. We feel the dish is best served this way.
The dish gives you a warm and filling meal that is both delicious and unique to the area.
You can find our Chicken Marsala on the menu any time of the year and pairs well with a red wine or one of our signature martini’s.
At Dolce Vita we strive to create an atmosphere where you can come with your friends to enjoy a relaxing night out. Where you won’t have to yell over one another to hold a conversation and where you won’t have to wear a tie and jacket to have dinner with us.
Great tasting food, delicious cocktails, and friendly atmosphere is what we are all about at Dolce Vita.
