Wined and Dined Chicken

Wined and Dined Chicken

Sometimes you want a chicken dish that's a bit fancy-tasting, without all the fancy work and cleanup. Well, this one fits the bill...and you don't have to worry about the alcohol in the wine because it should disappear during the cooking.

What You'll Need

  • 1 chicken (2½ to 3½ pounds), cut into 8 pieces
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 3 cups sliced fresh mushrooms (1/2 pound)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley flakes

What to Do

  1. Place the chicken in a resealable plastic bag. Add the flour and shake to lightly dust the chicken.

  2. In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, heat the oil.

  3. Cook the chicken for about 10 minutes, turning occasionally to lightly brown both sides.

  4. Remove the chicken to a platter.

  5. Add the onions and mushrooms to the skillet and sauté for 4 to 5 minutes or until tender.

  6. Add the chicken broth and wine to the onion and mushroom mixture. Add the salt, pepper, bay leaf, and parsley; mix well.

  7. Return the chicken to the skillet, cover, and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes or until the chicken is tender and cooked through. Remove the bay leaf before serving.


If you prefer to be "wined and dined" without the wine, simply substitute 1/2 cup of either nonalcoholic wine or apple juice for the red wine.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I know this will rate 5 Big Stars in my home! But until I make it I can't rate it. I just got home from store today, got online saw this Great sounding recipe, lo and behold I have ALL the ingredients to try this chicken dinner tonight. BUT have a bottle of white-wine ( Pinot Grigio ) not Red wine. Think it will come out alright if I use the white instead of the red wine? I don't often cook with wine, and am not sure if Pinot is "Dry" or not so if anyone can help I'll appreciate it. Thanks Mr. Food Test Kitchen for the BEST recipes that suit all our needs! Love 'em!

We're glad to hear your family will love this recipe! White wine will work just fine in this recipe. :) Enjoy!

I just had this for Dinner and it was excellent !

My family hates mushrooms so what can I replace with it that will give the same flavour result?

Hello - You could replace the mushrooms with the same amount of cherry tomatoes or baby carrots. Enjoy!

I can't wait to try this! It sounds delicious! Thanks for the nonalcoholic tips, my sister will like that.
