substitute for marsala?

Alex | Aug 2, 2005 04:48 PM

Hi everyone,
I love chicken and veal marsala, and want to make it at home, but I don't really want to buy a bottle of marsala just to cook with, as I understand it's not a great drinking wine and my budget is not exactly ample. Can I use just any dry white wine as a substitute, or does the marsala give the dish a specific flavor that I'll be missing without it? Thanks.
