Notes

I can't remember where I found this recipe. I've been making it for years and it's one of my families most requested. I prepare this in a cooker/fryer. Cook time includes all cooking needed. The meat gets so tender through the final cooking process that the meat literally falls off the bones. Because of that, I prefer to use all boneless chicken thighs and breasts. A rule of thumb to follow for the wine......only use a wine in this recipe that you consider good enough to drink
