Jalapeno Peppered Chicken Marsala With Brown Rice

This Jalapeno Peppered Chicken Marsala makes me dream of Fall weather.  Big chunky sweaters, slippers on my feet, the smell of arriving cool air.  Unfortunately I’m wearing as little as possible, nothing on my feet and the smell is of humidity.  Summer is here in full force, but let’s turn on the air conditioner and pretend it’s Fall.  Let’s dream…

We had this Jalapeno Peppered Chicken Marsala for dinner and it was a big hit.  The Chicken is slathered in a savory gravy and then diced jalapeno peppers and onions are spread on top.  This gives it a nice crunch and a very nice taste of freshness.    It’s the perfect match to a Summer meets Fall meal.

Recipe Notes

A great side dish to this Chicken Marsala is brown rice or mashed potatoes.
It's also delicious served over pasta, rice or mashed potatoes.

On the side of this Jalapeno Peppered Chicken Marsala we had Fried Brown Rice with scallions, water chestnuts and garlic.  The rice was full of flavor and spices and was the perfect Autumn inspired side dish to go along with the Chicken Marsala.   What’s most surprising about the rice is that it was boiled in a bag and ready in 5 minutes.  I was pretty shocked by the authentic taste of this rice.  Say hello to Tasty Bite.
