What can I substitute for Marsala wine?

Marsala wine isn't something I normally keep in my kitchen, so I find myself searching for an alternative that won't drastically change the flavor of the dish.

If you have white grape juice or white wine and any kind of brandy, you can make an easy substitute by trading 1/4 cup of Marsala wine for 1/4 cup of grape juice or white wine and a teaspoon of brandy.

Another alternative is to use either Port wine or Pinot Noir, although depending on the brand can be a rather expensive option.

Is there a non-alcoholic Marsala substitute?

The good news is that yes, there is a substitute for Marsala wine that is non-alcoholic. Keep in mind that the alcohol will evaporate during the cooking process anyway, but some cooks will prefer to just not cool with alcohol at all.

If you are searching for a non-alcoholic substitute the best mixture is to use 1/4 cup of white grape juice, 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract and 2 tablespoons of sherry vinegar.

Can I make this with shredded chicken instead?

If the relatives took home all of your leftover turkey, you can easily make a basic shredded chicken in your slow cooker by following this recipe posted by Emily Bites.

Simply add raw boneless, skinless chicken breasts to your slow cooker, seasoned with salt and pepper and cover with water or reduced-sodium chicken broth. Replace the lid and cook on low for 7-8 hours or on high for about 4 hours. You can also shorten this time by using your instant pot.
