We loved this recipe. The chicken and sauce were awesome, so much flavor and the texture of the chicken was perfect tender and moist. Thank you for sharing this keeper Teresa. Kudos on making it into my Best of 2020 Cookbook.

Oh my goodness this chicken dinner was amazing and lives up to its title! We all loved the flavor and especially the delicious gravy. I'll definitely be making this again and again. I forgot about marinating the chicken in wine, so I ended up doing it for only an hour. Thank you!

We had this for dinner tonight. I would have taken a picture but it was gone to quick! Served with noodles and green beans. Next time I will make rolls because the sauce is sooo good! Even picky DH liked it! Excellent!

Delish. I marinated some chicken thighs for about 6 hours and we really enjoyed the sauce on these. Thanks for sharing, Teresa. Made for Went to Market tag.
