If you are looking to get out of your weekly chicken rotation, my white wine chicken recipe is a great one for dinner tonight! I find it’s one of the easiest chicken in white wine recipes because it doesn’t take many ingredients and can be prepared quickly on a weeknight if you plan ahead!
WHAT TO SERVE WITH CHICKEN IN WHITE WINE SAUCE?
Any type of potato side dish pairs beautifully with chicken and white wine recipes. There’s something so delicious about a comforting potato side dish with a white wine sauce. My personal favorites are sour cream mashed potatoes for a smooth creamy texture which soaks up the white wine sauce nicely or for a crispy crunch try some crispy smashed potatoes.
#1: COOK THE CHICKEN BREASTS
For this, I like to use boneless skinless chicken breasts. I find it’s easier to by them already pounded into cutlets, because not only does it save time but they will also cook at an even rate and be done a lot quicker than regular chicken breasts.
Anytime I’m sautéing chicken breasts I like to use a combination of olive oil and butter. The olive oil has a higher smoke point than butter, so you can heat the oil to a higher temperature than butter. But the butter adds some nice flavor that will eventually contribute to the sauce.
