"I love this recipe. I actually only had White Zinfandel in stock for this so I used it. Tasted great. Had the liquor store been open ( Sunday ) I would have gotten white wine. The sauce was great and I used boneless chicken thighs instead also."

"I used an already baked seasoned chicken . I cubed it. Since I wanted to make this a one pot meal, I added a can of corn. Family liked it and I will be making it again. It's a great way to use up left-over chicken or (turkey)."

"The sauce was good, but the chicken came out dry and tasteless. I think next time I will coat the chicken with bread crumbs and oven-fry and make the sauce separate."
