I got this recipe from a recipe card many years ago and have enjoyed it ever since. It is simple, reasonably quick to make,low fat and tasty. You may substitute apple juice for the wine.

WOW...how easy was this. Instead of cooking it in a skillet, I just left it in my glass casserole dish that I had been marinating in, sealed it tightly with foil and baked in the oven. Moist and delicious. Even my DH (who has a SERIOUS aversion to chicken in ANY way) commented on how juicy and tasty it was. Definately a keeper and I making again tomorrow night...teehee! Thanks so much for posting!!!
