  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  2. Place your chicken breasts in a baking dish and season them generously with salt and black pepper on both sides.

  3. In a shallow dish or pie plate, mix the flour with a little salt and pepper.

  4. Dredge the chicken pieces in the flour mixture until they are well coated.

  5. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

  6. Add the chicken to the pan and brown on both sides for about 3 to 4 minutes per side.

  7. Transfer the browned chicken from your skillet into your baking dish with your lemon quarters.

  8. Melt remaining butter in the same skillet you used for the chicken until it is just beginning to foam.

  9. Add garlic, herbs, artichoke hearts, mushrooms, green onion slices to your skillet and sauté until soft and lightly browned.

  10. Pour white wine into the skillet and reduce the heat to low.

  11. Cook the wine and vegetable mixture until it is reduced by half, around 5-8 minutes.

  12. Pour the remaining broth over your skillet and bring it to a simmer while stirring continuously for approximately 2-3 minutes or until fully blended.

  13. Pour the creamy white wine sauce over your chicken breasts in the baking dish.

  14. Bake the chicken in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until fully cooked, making certain that the internal temperature of your chicken reads at least 165°F (74°C) when you use a meat thermometer.

Are you feeling experimental in the kitchen? Do you want to add some unique twists to this classic chicken recipe? Well, I have some options for you!

Firstly, if you’re not a fan of white wine, red wine can be used instead. It pairs well with chicken and adds a depth of flavor to the dish. A pinot noir or merlot would be great choices.

If you want to switch up the flavors, try using different herbs or spices in your recipe. For example, adding garlic and thyme will give your chicken a Mediterranean twist. If you prefer something more exotic, try adding ginger and soy sauce for an Asian-inspired flavor.

For those who are health-conscious, swapping butter for olive oil is a great way to cut down on unnecessary calories. You could also opt for boneless, skinless chicken breasts instead of the traditional chicken parts used in the recipe.

Finally, if you want to add some veggies to the dish, go for it! Artichoke hearts and fresh mushrooms would make excellent additions to this recipe. Just toss them in the baking dish along with the chicken and let them get beautifully roasted in that creamy white wine sauce.

Remember: cooking is all about experimentation and creativity; don’t be afraid to try new things!

Serving and Pairing

The aroma of baked chicken seasoned with herbs and white wine fills the room, and you can’t wait to dig in. But what should you serve it with? A creamy side dish like mashed potatoes or roasted vegetables would balance out the savory flavors of the chicken nicely.

When it comes time to pick a wine to pair with your dish, a Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay would be perfect for a baked chicken white wine recipe. These wines have a crisp acidity that complements the flavors in the dish without overwhelming them. If you prefer a red wine, try serving your baked chicken with a Pinot Noir or Merlot. Their softer tannins won’t overpower the subtle flavors of the chicken, but will still bring out its rich tastes.

For those who want to add an extra layer of flavor, a white wine garlic sauce recipe can be drizzled over the chicken for added depth. Or, try something different and make a red wine pan sauce for your baked chicken red wine recipe. There are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to matching the right wine with your meal.

No matter how you serve it, this baked chicken with wine recipe is sure to delight your taste buds and leave you craving more.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

One of the best things about this baked chicken with wine recipe is that it can be made ahead of time, making your meal preparation a breeze. If you want to save some time, prepare the chicken according to the recipe instructions, wrap it tightly with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 24 hours before baking. You can also freeze the prepared chicken for up to a month. Just make sure to thaw it completely in the refrigerator before baking.

Once the chicken is cooked, you might have leftovers, so storing and reheating them properly is important. To store leftover chicken, let it cool down first and then divide it into an airtight container. Place it in the refrigerator where it can last for up to four days. Reheat your baked chicken in the oven (covered with foil), microwave or stovetop.

If you’re looking for a way to switch up your dish, turn it into another recipe by adding new ingredients like fresh herbs or using different sauces. Leftover baked chicken makes a great topping for green salads or can be served over pasta or rice for a quick dinner. Each variation tastes just as delicious as the original dish and is easy to prepare, making any meal a special occasion that you and your family can enjoy together.

Tips for Perfect Results

To ensure that your baked chicken with wine recipe turns out perfectly every time, keep these tips in mind.

One of the most important things to remember is to use bone-in, skin-on chicken parts. This will help keep the meat moist and prevent it from drying out while baking. If you prefer to use boneless, skinless chicken breasts, be sure to watch them carefully as they cook since they can easily dry out.

Another tip for perfect results is to season the chicken well before baking. Use salt, freshly ground black pepper, and any other herbs and spices you prefer. This will add flavor to the meat and enhance the taste of the wine sauce.

To create a delicious wine sauce, be sure to use a dry white wine that you enjoy drinking. This will give the dish a more complex flavor and aroma that pairs well with the chicken. You can also experiment with using different types of wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay.

When roasting the chicken in the oven, use a baking dish large enough to hold all of the chicken pieces without overcrowding them. If they are too close together, they may not cook evenly.

For an even more flavorful dish, try adding other ingredients to the baking dish such as artichoke hearts, fresh mushrooms, or green onions. These will complement the flavors of the chicken and wine sauce.

Lastly, if you want a creamier white wine sauce for your baked chicken, be sure to add some heavy cream or butter at the end of cooking. This will thicken up the sauce and give it a velvety texture that is perfect for drizzling over mashed potatoes or roasted vegetables on the side.

By following these tips, you’ll be able to make a perfectly cooked baked chicken with wine dish every time that will impress your family and friends!

Baked Chicken With Wine Recipe

I got this from my SIL. I had never tasted chicken so good. It was a recipe from the California Winemakers Association. It's a very forgiving recipe. I've used apple juice in place of the wine. It's not quite as good, but acceptable.
