RECIPE BACKSTORY
I was thinking of some of my favorite foods and I thought to myself, wow I should do chicken marsala. Chemical info: Pure substances is salt (NaCl). The homogeneous mixtures are flour, olive oil, butter, marsala wine, and cooking sherry. The heterogeneous mixtures are mushrooms, chicken, ground black pepper, and dried oregano. Melting the butter is a physical change. The wine evaporating is another. A chemical change is the chicken turning white from pink. Another change is the chicken outside turning brown.
