Baked Chicken With Wine

"I got this from my SIL. I had never tasted chicken so good. It was a recipe from the California Winemakers Association. It's a very forgiving recipe. I've used apple juice in place of the wine. It's not quite as good, but acceptable."

  1. this was delicious. I used boneless chicken breasts, chardonnay, about 1 cup sliced mushrooms, and canned artichoke hearts. the sliced green onions (scallions) were a nice touch. i let it cook about 15 mins longer than the recipe stated because we werent quite ready to have dinner. No problem. thanks for a great recipe.
  2. This was very good. However, I might skip step two and just brown the chicken in a skillet first. The skin did not crisp up as much as I would have liked. the flavor was wonderful.


I've been cooking for over 45 years now. First I made Jello pudding. Next I learned how to make cream sauce. I still like creamed tuna over toast, rice or mashed potatoes. Many years ago I found a greeting card that said "When I retire I'm going to move to a big house in the country and live with a lot of cats...I've already got a start on the cats." I bought the store's entire stock and sent them to EVERYBODY! Well, now I'm retired, I live in a regular sized house in the country (on about 80 acres), I have a bunch of cats and feed a lot of other critters. There's a mini pig (she's still pretty big),a lop-eared rabbit, a vole who moved in under the stove, a huge flock of chickens, loads of songbirds, an opossum behind the barn(who sneaks in to eat), herons in the spring, pacific tree frogs, and the occasional coyote. We're even in the territory of a couple of golden eagles who stop by a couple of times a year. That's a chicken on my shoulder. JC (Junior Chicken). How he ended up as an indoor chicken is a long, complicated story. JC never learned to crow right. Maybe it was being deprived of role models in his formative months.
