Paleo Chicken Marsala Recipe

Named after the sunny and rustic Italian town of Marsala, Marsala wine is crafted from the southern town’s indigenous white grapes.  Coming in sweet and dry varieties, it is known for its various culinary uses, one of which is the Chicken Marsala. The rich, earthy, and mellow taste the wine provides is perfect for soft texture of the chicken.

    This sounds lovely. One of my fav dishes, so I’ll be trying this one day. We eat a LOT of chicken, now that beef and pork prices are climbing so high. THANKS!

    I have a question??? There are so many Paleo recipes on the internet and in Paleo cookbooks that I have read for Chicken Marsala. This is my favorite meal to make. I top it over spaghetti squash. However every recipe just calls for Marsala wine. None of the recipes suggest a particular Marsala wine. I have looked in Whole foods and Trader Joe’s to see if there is an organic Marsala wine and this does not exist from what I can see. The Marsala Wine I see in regular grocery stores has potassium sorbate (preservative) and potassium metabisulfite (preservative). Is there a Marsala wine without preservatives? What marsala wine should I use to be PALEO?
