Frequently Asked Questions 

How Long Can I Keep Leftovers In The Fridge?

You can keep this recipe in the fridge in an airtight container for 4 to 5 days. 

Can I Freeze This Recipe?

You can store this recipe in the freezer once you place it in a ziplock bag or an airtight container. When you are ready to eat it, make sure to pull it out of the freezer the night before and set it in the fridge to start thawing out before you warm it up in the oven. 

Can I Use Other Chicken Meat? 

Yes, you can substitute the chicken thighs for chicken breast and use that in this recipe if you like. But make sure that it is cooked all the way through. Chicken breasts take more time in the oven than chicken thighs. They also do not provide the same flavor profile and intensity that the thighs can give you. 

Do I Have To Use White Wine?

You can use red wine if you like. Some people would say that you get a deeper flavor with red wine. Chianti and Sangiovse are good options. Most people use the unspoken rule of using a wine that you like to drink to cook with. If you are trying to omit the alcohol altogether, substitute 3 tablespoons chicken broth, plus 1 tablespoon lemon juice.

  5. SO YUMMY! I didn’t have stewed tomatoes so I used spaghetti sauce instead. Love it paired with roasted sweet potatoes! My hubby ate it over pasta.

    Can’t wait to make it again!
