This is perfect for date night or a small dinner party. French inspired, this Vintage Chicken has a simple white wine mushroom sauce which is sure to become a favorite in your house.
I recently made this for our family dinner with 12 people, and was able to have the full dinner (including wild rice pilaf, salad, and vegetables) on the table within 1 hour and 15 minutes. Not bad considering I was serving 12 people. I doubled this recipe and we had enough leftover for about 2-4 servings.
Not only did the adults love this, but the kids all had at least 2 pieces of chicken. I was worried at first that the wine flavor might be too strong for them, but they all loved it.
This is one of those dishes that brings back fond memories for me. I remember my mom making this for her dinner parties. I would sit in the background and was always happy if there was enough for us kids to eat what the adults were having.
Later, when I became a teenager and started cooking with my mom, this was one of the first real dinners I think I made on my own without them. One night when they were out, I had a ‘Mystery Dinner Party’ with a group of my friends. I served this and was so proud that I was able to make it. I think that was my first hint that cooking was in my blood.
Well, I guess that’s enough rambling on about my memories of this delicious dish, so here are two recipes. The first is the one I wrote down when I made this for my family, cut in half since you likely don’t need to serve 12. The second is what we have written down in my family cookbook.
