I wanted to make this dish to try out that gallon of Marsala cooking wine I bought. I had low expectations for it but wanted to save some money over buying the real stuff. This met my expectations in that it isn’t nearly as good as the real wine but it does add some Marsala flavor to the dish so it wasn’t a total bust. I took the dinner as an occasion to also try out some Mexican rice from a box mix that has been showing up at the local Kroger store:The rice mix had some dried corn kernels that floated to the top when I poured in the water, I scooped those out and added some fresh off the cob sweet corn. I probably should have left them in to make the trial a fair one but I have a recollection of biting down on a hard little rock of a corn kernel once. The mix turned out pretty well – I will chop some fresh peppers into it next time, though.There was leftover chicken and rice from the Marsala dish so I added more broccoli and turned it into a creamy cheese soup by adding the leftovers to chicken broth and blending in cheese and heavy cream. It made an excellent lunch today.Bonus kitteh! This is Spots, a cute little tortie awaiting adoption at St Francis.
