    Sassy Syrah's Note:

    This is a really tasty, low fat dish. If you don't have time to marinade the chicken, don't bother. It really needs at least one hour, even better with longer. It comes from a Family Circle cookbook entitled "healthy eating". Cooking time is listed as the marinading time. This is not the kind of dish that you can run off and do other things while cooking it. You really do need to stand there..

      This is a wonderful dish. The chicken turned out very tender, juicy and flavorful. The marinade adds a wonderful flavor to the chicken. I let the chicken marinate about 2 hours. This is a dish that will be making a repeat performance in this household. Thanks so much for sharing this, Syrah, we loved it.

      Very Good, easier to make then it looks with so many steps. Next time I am not going use as much rice wine. Other than that the recipe is great and I will be making it again. we loved the chicken it was so juicy.
