"Posting for ZWT6 Britain from online at All British Food.com. This sounds so delicious. It states chicken quarters halved, which is really just chicken legs and thighs. Chicken is always a good choice for entertaining because it is so versatile and most people like it. Slowly cooked in white wine and given lots of flavour with garlic, herbs and bacon, it makes an ideal dinner party dish that is also quick and easy to prepare. Would recommend serving with pasta or rice."

"Made for ZWT6 as a Family Pick when I did not plan ahead for it, so I hope you will forgive the liberties I took w/your recipe. I used very lrg chicken breasts cut into medallions, wedges of white onion & canned mushrooms. All that said, the outcome was truly superb & it is hard to imagine how good it will be w/the fresh mushrooms. The meat is fork-tender & the sauce has a lovely flavor, but is very thin even after a rest time from the oven. I think the wine & stock need to be added together w/a bit of cornstarch, which will likely resolve the sauce issue. This recipe is restaurant quality in every other way. Served w/oven roasted potatoes & a cucumber salad, we loved it! Thx for sharing the recipe w/us. :-)"
"This was very good. I cut it down to just 2 thighs and 2 legs. The meat came out very tender and juicy, and we really enjoyed the sauce over our rice. I think I'd thicken the sauce next time, and add a few more herbs into it to boost the flavor a bit. Overall, very good; and with a little tweaking- outstanding. Made for ZWT8."
"Delicious! We loved this tender and flavorful chicken. The bacon, garlic and wine made the sauce very special. I used twissis' recommendation and added the wine, chicken stock, garlic, and seasonings to the pan at the same time, along with a cornstarch slurry to thicken the sauce. It worked perfectly. The chicken was very tender and the sauce was the perfect consistency. Thank you sharing this wonderful recipe.

"Wanted something delectable, but with little time, took a few shortcuts with your lovely recipe. Used breast fillets, chopped into bite-sized pieces, wedges of onion, and my mushrooms were quite big so I sliced them. Other than doing this all in a skillet on top of the stove, I used the recipe ingredients and directions, and this truly was a scrumptious meal, real comfort food and extremely satisfying. I served this with white rice, and it was made for ZWT8, thank you Diner, much enjoyed!!"
