Reviews for Wine & Herb Baked Chicken
"Very good recipe. I used white wine instead of red, added some poultry seasoning, & used fresh parsley instead of dried. Nice flavor."
"This was pretty tasty. I made it with the red wine, not the chicken broth. The soy sauce definitely is the more powerful flavor in this, but I don't think that it is over powering. The flavors all blend well together. Served it over some brown rice which worked well. Also roasted some asparagus with olive oil and garlic to go along with it. Definitely looking forward to eating the leftovers for lunch this week!"
"Mildred is right about the aroma. I love making this dish as much for the anticipation as the actual eating enjoyment!"
"Although it takes a bit longer to cook than I usually spend on a meal, the chicken came out moist and juicy - perfectly done and the sauce was delicious (even without wine). It reheats well the next day too!"
Light-Bodied White Wine
