    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    I had this while on vacation in Key Largo, FL and had to have the recipe. It is a moist and flavorful chicken with a fabulous sauce that is good on just about everything. It is a real crowd pleaser and an instant hit at every table. Add roasted potatoes, some steamed veggies, salad and bread and you will have a wonderful dinner! The recipe calls for 1/4 cup butter, however, I use less and it always comes out perfect.

      It was pretty good. I've never had anything quite like it before. I will probably try it again.

      My chicken is still cooking so I can't rate it but when should I be putting the wine in, the recipe doesn't say anywhere.
