“This is always a favorite when we entertain. It can be a little tricky to make. The alcohol will cook out of the wine so don't be concerned with the amount. You have to be sure not to over cook the chicken during the browning time or it will be dry. The lemon juice will absorb into the chicken while simmering but the wine mixture might taste bitter while cooking, if so, just and a little more lemon juice and salt. You might want to vary the lemon juice depending upon your personal taste. I like to use Chardonnay, but taste will vary by brand of wine used. I serve it with wild herb and buttered rice. Great the next day also.”
