what if you don't have white wine or cornstarch can you still make this recipe?

I used all of the ingredients, but prepared it differently. Instead of baking, I cooked the chicken breast in a skillet and made the sauce in the skillet also. I doubled the sauce ingredients and served it over white rice.
