    threeovens's Note:

    This is a very basic sauteed chicken recipe that can be varied in many ways. You can add one tablespoon of fresh herb (such as rosemary, basil, tarragon) to the cooking chicken to change the flavor entirely. Also, you can substitute chicken broth or red wine for the white wine in this recipe.

      Very tasty! DH preferred his sauce on his veggies so he could pick up the chicken to eat it. By serving with steamed veggies, this became a healthy meal. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.
