Chicken Recipe with Red Wine Ingredient

As autumn begins to bring cooler temperatures, keep this recipe on hand to consider creating. This recipe uses Sangiovese or suggests using a similar type red wine. There will be wine left over, so serve it with dinner. Many thanks to Temecula Valley Winegrowers Association for use of this recipe!

If you’re traveling to a winery this weekend, take your camera with you to get some great photos of the changing leaves, bright orange pumpkins and other signs of fall.

Have a wonderful weekend!
Cheers, Kathy
