Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  Mr. Wishes and I enjoyed our last weekend of non-craziness before the rest of the month of August inevitably flies by because of the insane amount of things we have planned…..birthdays, weddings, out-of-town guest visits….the list goes on!  All good things, of course.

I have a great dinner idea to share with you today.  This was such an easy recipe to make and it calls for more “standard” ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen, which is always nice for all of you non-planners like myself.  It is one of those go-to meals on a busy night where you want/need a home made dinner but don’t have time to go shopping for weird ingredients or cook all night.

This meal smelled fabulous coming out of the oven, and tasted even better.  The chicken was moist and delicious and the wine and swiss cheese make this really good.

Serve it with rice or vegetable and you have yourself a home-cooked meal the entire family will love.  Perfect comfort food.  Make it now, thank me later.

    What kind of white wine would one use ? And also what kind of stuffing ? The bag or stove top?

    • March 30, 2015 at 3:19 PM #

      Hi Yvette! You can use either, but I used the bag because I think it tastes better 🙂

        Thank you. What about the wine?

        • March 30, 2015 at 3:39 PM #

          Oh sorry about that! Any white wine that is great to drink would work well in this recipe. This will make the dish turn out the best it can be. I wouldn’t use the cooking wine or supermarket wine. You can always use chicken stock in place of the wine if you want to. I do think the wine gives it a great flavor though! I used a Chardonnay the last time I made it but have used different kinds, as well.

            March 30, 2015 at 3:42 PM #

            Thanks again Ashley. I can’t wait to try it. I think I will try Moscato since that’s what I have at home.

          • March 30, 2015 at 4:12 PM #

            Sounds great! Thank you for stopping by 🙂 Enjoy!

    I bought cooking wine. It didn’t say what type to use. And I didn’t want to buy a bottle of wine bc it’ll just go to waste bc I don’t drink wine and neither does anyone in my family except my gma but she lives in a different state. Will it taste gross if I use the cooking wine bc that’s what I bought and i don’t have any chicken stock nor any money. So what do I do now?

    • April 1, 2015 at 2:55 PM #

      You should be fine! Some of the cooking wines I have tasted tended to be a little salty tasting. I’m sure it will turn out just fine – maybe I’m just more picky than everyone else, anyways! 🙂

    I’m a very picky person too. I just didn’t want to serve my family something disgusting if I used the wrong stuff. So since im using cooking wine should I use the same amount or less?

  39. jessica
    April 1, 2015 at 3:05 PM #

    And I probably won’t use the extra salt to put on the chicken for taste since ethereal cooking wine is already salty. I’d prob just use a dash.

    • April 1, 2015 at 6:11 PM #

      I would leave everything the same except less salt. You can always add it in the end if it needed more! It’s a Paula Deen recipe and I did research it a little and saw people used Cooking wine with no problem!

    My chicken is still pink after 45 minutes in the oven. So I upped the degree to 400 and cooking it for another 15 minutes. Other then then the chicken not being done it’s pretty good.

    I am making this tomorrow. I am going to use crushed flavored croutons instead of the stuffing because that’s what I have on hand.
