Italian Chicken Chardonnay Recipe

Italian Chicken Chardonnay Recipe

"One day, I needed to have dinner ready when we walked in the door after work and school. So I altered a skillet dish that my family likes into this delicious slow cooker meal, and it was ready and waiting when we got home. It's perfect for a weeknight meal but is nice enough for company, too." —Judy Armstrong, Prairieville, Louisiana
