I've made this recipe many times and learned that if you are using large, thick chicken breasts you may have to continue baking for an additional 20-30 minutes. As mentioned by a couple of cooks, I mix everything in the bowl except the wine and butter. Place mixed ingredients in the packet and then pour in the the wine and place in the pats of butter. I have added parnips, chopped applewood bacon, procuitto or serrano ham thinly sliced. Butter beans and fresh sage worked very well for me too! Also, rather than tearing two equal pieces of foil, simply pull out the length of two shoeboxes and fold in half...it saves an extra seam. Thank you Terese!

Super-Super recipe! This is an excellent concept - so easy to prepare, outstanding in presentation and makes for a great dinner party dish as you can prepare this early in the day and place in the fridge until evening when you are ready to serve, allowing more time spent with your dinner guests then working in the kitchen! I'm anxious to try other variations!! My next attempt will be a coq au vin'ish theme - using, in addition to the ingredients listed: pearl onions, some sliced or cubed bacon, bay and of course a dry red wine in place of the white - I can't wait to see how it will turn out! Also worth mentioning - this recipe would be an excellent recipe for the beginner cook looking to host their first dinner party! Lovely recipe, thanks for posting!

Cooked this for the first timelast night - a great success. Great to find a new recipe for chicken breast! I would add more potatoes next time as 2 isn't enough for two people. Also I think the addition of finely chopped onions would be nice. I'd also like more sauce so will probably add more wine next time!
A lovely tasty dinner - easy to do (thanks to others for the tip to put in the veg/chicken first and then add the wine/olive oil - will try that next time as it was a bit sloppy!!)
Highly recommended.

This was a great recipe because it was so easy! It was kind of hard to transfer the wine sauce into the foil and the taste was also very light. Next time I'm going to try making some cuts on the chicken so the sauce goes into the meat more (the chicken breasts I used were pretty thick, about more than 1/2 inch), and I will probably put more garlic as well!

Loved this recipe, it was so easy and enjoyable to prepare and the result was superb. I'll be trying it with red wine and bacon next time!

WOW was I impressed by this recipe. I used Chardonnay and added extra garlic and we loved it. Have added this to my recipe book- thanks!

This was easy and the chicken came out so tender and moist. Next time I will throw the ingredients in the bag and pour the wine in instead of combining in a bowl, as it was difficult to transfer to the foil. I also think the wine overpowered everything, I would use 1/4 -1/2 cup. I had to use shitake mushrooms because I couldn't get porcini and the texture of these was odd. I wonder if they should have been dehydrated first.
