This is a hearty soup bursting with the flavors of that famous Italian meal.

A Few More Tips!



Beef is another option you can use for this soup and it makes a great Beef Marsala Soup if you even have leftover beef roasts or steak, don't hesitate to substitute it for chicken.


I really love the flavor of Marsala wine, you can add more to the taste so test your soup before it's done cooking.


The chicken we use is always boneless to avoid splinters of bone, but you can use bone-in if you prefer and remove the meat off the bone.
