Not a good flavor combo at all

This seems like some weird 1940’s dish. It at least tastes slightly better than it smells but I don’t recommend making this recipe at all!

Would Do Again

Great dish to make and pretty easy to put together. I would suggest adding more in the liquids portion. When making this we did, however, the chicken turned out a little dry despite following the recipe instructions for time portions. I would suggest watching over the chicken when making it rather than just leaving it while at work like we did.

Merlo delicious!

Really easy to make. I more than the 2 cloves or garlic and perhaps a bit more wine, but it was delicious. I really enjoy wine and this recipe does have an over powering wine flavor like I thought it might. I highly recommend!
