“This recipe, originally called Chicken Elegante, was given to me by my roommate. She got it from her grandfather (the family calls it Chicken a la Dad), and since I got it from her, I call it Chicken a la Kelly. The recipe calls for a 750ml bottle of wine which will yield a large amount of gravy. I find the gravy to be delicious and serve it over rice, however you could probably use half to two-thirds of the bottle to make a sufficient amount of gravy.”
