For years this dish tempted me before I tried it. When I moved away from home I was incredibly picky and had not eaten many things outside of the realm of my mom’s tasty traditional cooking. But the name of this dish. Named after a wine. Marsala. It rolled off my tongue and drew me in and eventually I just had to try it with a name like that.
I have good news. Weight Watchers Instant Pot Chicken Marsala is as delicious and rich as the name suggests. This dish does not disappoint. And even better, it only has four Weight Watchers Smart Points.
