The bright and citrusy notes of the white wine make this dish a flavor explosion.

Now, let’s get to the exciting part- how to make this mouth-watering Chicken with White Wine recipe!

– 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in half
– salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
– ½ cup all-purpose flour
– 1 tbsp olive oil
– 2 tbsp butter
– 2 large garlic cloves, minced
– 1 cup dry white wine
– 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
– juice of half a lemon


  1. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides. Dredge in flour on both sides and shake off the excess.

  2. Heat olive oil and one tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken breast halves and cook for about 5 minutes until golden brown. Flip the chicken and cook for another 4 minutes or until it is cooked through (use a food thermometer to ensure it has reached an internal temperature of 165°F). Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.

  3. Add another tablespoon of butter to the same skillet. Then, add minced garlic and cook for about one minute until fragrant.

  4. Pour white wine into the skillet and deglaze (scrape off) any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet using a wooden spoon. Cook the sauce on high heat until it reduces to about half.

  5. Pour in chicken broth and lemon juice, then continue cooking until it reduces again by about one third.

  6. Lower heat to medium-low, add remaining butter while stirring, then season with salt, black pepper, and dried parsley.

  7. After about nine minutes, return the chicken back to the skillet and coat in sauce; cook for about two minutes or until heated through.

  8. You can optionally serve with mushrooms or top with more fresh parsley for added freshness.

Note: While this recipe can be made in a slow cooker, it is best for pan-fried chicken version as it allows the chicken to crisp up. The skillet is necessary to give that perfect caramelization to the chicken.

Now that you know how to make this amazing Chicken with White Wine recipe, go ahead and put your culinary skills to test! This dish pairs well with mashed potatoes or roasted vegetables for a complete meal.

Substitutions and Variations

If you fancy experimenting with different textures and flavor profiles, there are a few simple substitutions and variations you can try out.

For instance, instead of chicken breasts, you can use skinless chicken thighs or drumsticks. These cuts tend to be more tender and juicy compared to the chicken breasts. When using thighs, reduce the cooking time by a few minutes because they cook faster than the breast meat.

To add more depth of flavor to the recipe, you can replace the white wine with red wine or sherry vinegar. The red wine will give it a fuller mouthfeel, while the acid from sherry vinegar will help bring out the flavors.

For those looking for a vegetarian option, replace chicken with mushrooms. You can use any type of mushroom – button mushrooms or Shitake mushrooms – to add an earthy and savory flavor.

If you prefer spicier food, add some harissa sauce or chili flakes to give it a kick of heat. If you want it tangier, add some mustard in addition to lemon juice.

As a side dish substitute mashed potatoes with creamy polenta or vegetables like asparagus or green beans. For pasta lovers, serve this delicious recipe over linguine or fettuccine pasta.

The possibilities are endless with this recipe. Experiment, have fun, and enjoy the process of making it your own!

Serving and Pairing

This dish is incredibly versatile and pairs well with many different sides. Some options include green beans, roasted carrots, mashed potatoes, or a salad. The creamy white wine sauce also pairs well with pasta or rice if you’re looking for something heartier.

For pairing wine, a dry white wine like Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc is a perfect complement to the dish. Both have crisp acidity and fresh citrus flavors that complement the chicken and mushrooms in the dish.

Another good option is Pinot Gris or Pinot Grigio. These wines are versatile and pair well with many different types of dishes. They tend to have medium acidity and flavors of apples, pears and citrus which makes them a good match for chicken.

If you prefer red wine, try pairing this dish with a light-bodied red like Pinot Noir or Chianti. These reds have enough acidity to cut through the creaminess of the sauce and their fruity notes pair well with chicken.

In terms of serving, I suggest topping the chicken breasts with some of the white wine sauce before serving, as it adds an extra layer of flavor to each bite. Additionally, garnishing with chopped parsley after plating can add color to your dish and bring out additional flavor notes. Overall, this recipe is sure to impress your dinner guests and leave them asking for seconds!

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

One of the best things about this chicken white wine recipe is that it can be made ahead of time, which makes it perfect for meal prep or hosting a dinner party. To make ahead, simply cook the chicken and sauce as instructed and store them separately in airtight containers in the fridge for up to two days.

When it comes to reheating, you have a few options. The easiest way is to reheat the chicken and sauce together in a skillet or pot over low heat, stirring occasionally, until heated through. If the sauce has thickened while stored in the fridge, simply add a splash of chicken broth or white wine to loosen it up.

Another option is to reheat individual portions in the microwave. Place the chicken on a microwave-safe plate, spoon some sauce over it, and cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes or until heated through.

If you have leftover chicken and sauce that you don’t plan on reheating immediately, they can be stored separately in the fridge for up to three days or in the freezer for up to three months. Just be sure to allow them to cool completely before transferring them to an airtight container or freezer bag.

When storing in the freezer, consider portioning out individual servings so that you can easily defrost and reheat them for quick weeknight meals. The night before serving, move your frozen portions from the freezer to the fridge to defrost overnight.

No matter how you choose to store and reheat your chicken white wine recipe, its flavors will remain deliciously intact because its rich creamy white wine sauce only matures better with time!

Tips for Perfect Results

One of the most important things when cooking chicken breasts is to ensure that they are properly seasoned. To get a deep, rich flavor in your chicken, season it with salt and freshly ground black pepper before cooking it.

For the best results, make sure you’re using dry white wine, which will give your chicken an amazing aroma and taste. But don’t be afraid to experiment with other varieties until you find your perfect match!

When browning the chicken, make sure that your pan is hot enough so that the chicken gets a nice golden color on both sides. Be patient and let the chicken cook without moving it around too much as this will help it form a beautiful crust.

If you’re making the creamy white wine sauce, take care to simmer the sauce for a few minutes after adding the cream to prevent it from curdling.

Another pro tip is to add just a little bit of dijon mustard to bring out the flavors in your sauce.

And lastly, don’t forget to pair this fabulous dish with a glass of white wine for the ultimate culinary experience!
