French Herbed Baked Chicken

French herbed baked chicken

I love baked chicken.

It is usually so easy to prepare that it makes an easy dinner recipe any night of the week.

This recipe is no exception.

It is a wonderful herbed chicken recipe that combines chicken pieces, vegetables and herbs in an easy to prepare dinner recipe.

The right simple ingredients combined together make for delicious eating.

The addition of the white wine gives this recipe a wonderful subtle flavor that cooks into the meat and adds an amazing amount of flavor to the dish.

I love one pot meals. Add a few cubed potatoes and this becomes a complete meal in a pot. Or serve it with creamy mashed potatoes covered in the lovely wine sauce that results.

Some diabetic medications require that you don’t drink alcohol. If you are on one of those, please just replace the wine with chicken broth. It will still taste great. Other than that, this is a great diabetic recipe.
