Second, let the crock pot do all of the work. Cook on low for 5 hours and be prepared for the best dinner! The meat will be so tender.

Next, take the chicken out of the slow cooker.

Get out a small bowl and whisk together the water and cornstarch. Once combined, pour this into the slow cooker and stir everything together.

Finally, put the chicken back in the slow cooker. Turn the crock pot to high and let this cook for another 30 minutes. You want the sauce to thicken.

The last step is to add the heavy cream right before serving. Make sure it is well combined and enjoy.

It is really that simple to make this delicious meal for your family.

Do you need Marsala wine for chicken marsala?

You can substitute chicken or vegetable stock for the wine if you prefer. Just use the same amount of stock so it still has equal amounts.

Serving ideas

  • We like to serve this delicious meal over pasta. You can use any variety. We have used everything from egg noodles and fettuccine to elbow noodles.
  • Throw in a simple side salad and you have a great meal. You know we like to keep it easy.
  • Don’t forget the bread for dipping into that sauce. Yum! We love these Easy Homemade Dinner Rolls or you can pick up something from the bakery.

Tips and tricks:

  • Try making Slow Cooker Chicken Marsala Thighs. You can easily substitute thighs for the chicken breasts.
  • Short on ingredients? Try using a can of cream of mushroom soup to make this tasty chicken. Never underestimate a woman with a can of “cream of something” soup.
  • You can make Crock Pot Chicken Marsala keto friendly! Simply omit the pasta, mashed potatoes or noodles and this dish becomes keto friendly. This is a great way to enjoy the same meal as your family without cooking a bunch of various meals.
  • Make sure you have a good slow cooker to make Creamy Chicken Marsala crockpot recipe. I love this  Ninja cooker.  You can see  several others on sale .

I also like to use crock pot liners to make clean up a breeze. These are worth every penny and save a ton of time. I think they are definitely worth it.

  1. I’m confused on step 3 & 5. Step 3 is adding cream to bowl with water & cornstarch then stirring into crock pot. Step 5 is add heavy cream to crockpot. If I was guessing step 3 is without heavy cream? Plan to make this in a few days and would like knowing when to add heavy cream. Thanks!

  2. Yes, you are correct step 3 is just the water and corn starch. I have corrected the recipe and post. Thank you for letting us know.

  3. Ok I don’t have mushrooms but would like to mushroom soup what is the recipe for this method?

  4. I have tried it but I think it would taste great. Just mix in the mushroom soup with the other ingredients. Thanks.
