Chicken Marsala with Endive

Marsala wine is dry or sweet, which comes from the Italian city of Marsala in Sicily. It was traditionally served between the first and second courses of a meal as an aperitif. Endive is a member of the chicory family, which also includes radicchio and escarole. It is crisp, sweet, nutty and mildly bitter. It is quite difficult to grow, requiring 150 days in the field and then cold storage until needed, then another 28 days for the second growing period. This is a nice quick recipe from Gordon Ramsay for chicken breast or thigh marinated with olive oil/ salt with a marsala/chicken broth sauce. Simple steps highlighted below, detailed summary in the video.
