The chicken tenders are fried to a golden brown and then simmered in wine and lemon slices. The result is juicy, delicious chicken with lots of flavor. This is a surprisingly good meal for busy people, and you can have it on your table in less than a half hour. Stand back for the kudos because your friends and family will think you cooked all day! Enjoy! Photos are my own. Recipe adapted from a store card years ago.
