“This has been in my family for over 60 years. I have no clue where my Dad got it but it's one of my favorite chicken recipes. It's also great with game hens. Cook time depends on size of chicken. It's about 20-25 minutes. Just make sure chicken is done and juices run clear. Don't overcook.”
1 chicken

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Lightly season chicken halves on both sides with salt and pepper.

Broil 5" from heat source. Baste several times with wine sauce. Turn chicken at halfway point and continue to baste until chicken is done. Five minutes or so before chicken is done, put mushrooms on broiler pan to finish cooking. Remove chicken from pan and plate with mushrooms. Pour any sauce in broiler pan back into saucepan.
