Heeeey! I think I have all the ingredients for this! Tonight's dinner: chosen. :)

Donna Rhoads said...

This dish was really good I just made it! I served it with cauliflower rice and the fam loved it. I used smaller cubes of chicken because that's what I had, I think the sauce was a bit thinner than I expected but that may be due to a quicker cook time because of the smaller chicken. All in all, keeping it in the list of bomb recipes! Thanks!

Judith Hannemann said...

Glad you liked in Donna. Sometimes a thinner sauce works better if you're serving it over pasta or rice or something!

Vanessa Molinar said...

Is this recipe for 2? How should i make it for 5?

Judith Hannemann said...

I'd triple the recipe Vanessa. If they are hearty eaters, I'd go heavy on the pasta when serving.

I'd go by the appetites I was serving--light eaters, I'd double it and make extra pasta. More hearty eaters, I'd triple it *and* go heavy on the pasta.

Vanessa Molinar said...

Thank you so much. I have made your recipe before for my husband and me and it was delicious. Tonight I'll make it for us, kids and his mom. Thank you again!

Judith Hannemann said...

Thank you for your kind words Vanessa and I'm really glad you enjoyed this!! Have a great day!

Donna Ausmus said...

My family loved this recipe! I had no leftovers! Thank you for sharing this.

Judith Hannemann said...

Glad you all liked it Donna!

if you add your beautifully browned, crisped chicken back to boil in the covered pan, the chicken will lose its crispness, breading, etc. Maybe bake after browning, then combine only to plate?

Judith Hannemann said...

The chicken isn't all that crisp really. Letting saute in the wine infuses the chicken with flavor which wouldn't happen with baking it separately then adding the sauce later. Not saying that doing it the way you state wouldn't be good--there's many ways of making this--it's just that this way makes it tastier for me.
