This recipe comes in at 472 grams per serving of 553 calories with the pasta, 358 grams per serving at 405 calories without the pasta.  Enjoy this with a green salad and white wine.

I have always loved Veal Marsala.  When I originally made this dish, I used the recipe in The Mafia Cookbook by Joseph “Joe Dogs” Iannuzzi, which has great recipes accompanied by Joe’s stories of being a cook for The Mob.  The book is fun for the stories and the recipes – highly recommended.  Recently, I started looking at my fat intake and decided this wonderful recipe needed some fat reduction.  Along comes the air fryer to cook the veal instead of cooking it in fat.  Bang!  Skinny Veal Marsala – fewer calories with all the flavor.

Don’t want to use Veal for Skinny Veal Marsala?

If you don’t want to use veal, please feel free to use thin slices of raw chicken breast instead.  I know a lot of people don’t want to eat veal for various reasons and I can understand that.  Veal is very lean meat, but it’s not cheap.  There are also ethical reasons why people don’t want to eat veal and there are explanations for why you should consider it.  Please make your own decision.  Regardless, this is a tasty dish and isn’t going to ruin a recommended amount of daily calories.

Crystalized Juice

The other ingredients used, crystalized lemon and crystallized orange, are great because you can always have them on hand in your pantry and not worry about them going bad.  Please don’t use bottled lemon juice – use fresh lemon juice from a lemon if you don’t have the crystallized lemon.

    Thanks for this. My doctor told me I needed to try to stay away from fatty foods. I was looking for ways to reduce fat and still taste good. I heard about air fryers and now I think I’ll get one. I don’t like veal, but chicken will be fine.

    We absolutely loved this veal marsala. I made this for our anniversary dinner and served it with a salad and white wine. We’re both trying to watch our weight, so this was really helpful. Thanks!

    I really don’t like the idea of using veal, but this recipe seemed too appealing I decided to try it with chicken instead. The sauce was yummy! I think I might have overcooked the chicken a little bit – but that’s my error, not yours.
