Absolutely lovely, thank you. I adjusted all the ingredients to bring the liquid up to 1 full cup of broth and 1 full cup of white wine. Actually I used 2 stock cubes in one cup of water. And I have enough leftovers to make into pies for tonights dinner. Really tender chicken which I served with crunchy baked potatoes, peas and corn.
