The crazy weather we have been having here lately has been wreaking havoc on my immune system. We went from arctic-like, below zero temperatures one week to Florida-like weather the next week. And the weather is still see-sawing here between rainy spring & snowy winter this week. I ended up with a sinus infection over the weekend that quickly morphed into a full-on case of laryngitis. Let me just say that I am glad that I have a job where I work from home & do not have to talk on the phone very often. ;)

Feeling under the weather has me craving some of my favorite comfort foods like the recipe for this Chicken Marsala Noodle Soup I am sharing with you all today. This soup is a classy, flavorful take on my classic homemade chicken noodle soup recipe. It incorporates all the classic flavors of Chicken Marsala- sauteed mushrooms, crispy prosciutto, & rich Marsala wine- into a comforting, cozy soup your entire family will love...

My daughter has long been a fan of my Easy Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup, aka what she has been calling Cockadoodle Soup since she was around 4 years old. ;) And up until now, that soup has been her most requested dinner. But I think this Chicken Marsala Noodle Soup is quickly becoming her new favorite. Let's just say that she had THREE helpings of this soup the evening that I made it.

A few suggestions for making this soup:

  • I used baby bella mushrooms in this, but you could also use porcini. Both varieties will lend a deep flavor to this soup. 
  • I have made this soup without the prosciutto, & it was indeed delicious. But I wouldn't skip this ingredient if I was you. The mushrooms become even more flavorful when cooked in the fat from the prosciutto, & you just cannot beat the crispy prosciutto as a tasty topping for this soup.
  • I used store bought chicken broth in this recipe, but you can totally sub in homemade chicken broth in this instead. A homemade broth will add even more richness & depth to this soup. Try my recipe for Easy Homemade Chicken Broth
  • Since this question often gets asked when I am sharing a recipe that calls for alcohol- no, there is no substitute for the Marsala wine in this. It is what makes this soup a Chicken Marsala Noodle Soup and not just a chicken & mushroom soup. ;) Just about all of the alcohol in the cooking wine does cook out though.
