  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Whisk the white wine, soy sauce, vegetable oil, water, garlic, ginger, oregano, and brown sugar together in a bowl. Arrange the chicken breasts in a covered baking dish; pour the sauce over the chicken.
  3. Bake covered in the preheated oven for 1 hour, turn and cook until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 30 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

I modified it... I decided to try this recipe out as I liked all the ingredients, but I used chicken tenderloins and a saute pan to speed things up. This recipe has a VERY large amount of soy sauce - really salty - for those who prefer less salt, I would recommend 1/8 c of soy sauce is more than enough. Because the amount of liquid described was for baking, not sauteeing, I added cornstarch at the end to thicken the remaining juices into a sauce. Also, adding mushrooms is not a bad idea. Sounds like a lot of changes, I know, but I don't think the spirit of the recipe was changed. Everybody liked it.

Very unimpressed. I did everything the recipe said, but it was flavorless and boring.

I followed the recipe exactly as I always do the first time I try any NEW recipe. I did marinate the chicken in the sauce for about an hour before I put it in the oven. The chicken just melted in your mouth and was very tasty. My husband wants this dish again and so do I!

The chicken came out great! I did, however; take the advice of another reviewer and marinated the chicken in the sauce for a while before cooking it. Still came out wonderful.

I made this with a couple modifications. I used red wine because it was all I had, I replaced vegetable oil with Canola because it is better for you, and I used low sodium soy sauce. Also I used boneless skinless chicken thighs because it was all I had. It came out SO good. My family ate all of it up and that never happens! After we took the chicken out I added some corn starch to the left over sauce to thicken it a bit and pour over the chicken and the rice we had with it. So good! Will def. make again.

Ok, I NEVER review or remark, but this dish has prompted me to do just that! I followed the directions to the letter (save substituting Olive Oil for regular vegetable). The results: exquisite. No knife needed, so tender and flavorful. What a simple, easy, and delicious recipe. Thank-you for posting!

I liked this recipe and did very little to change it. I did use low sodium soy sauce and there was no issue with it being too salty. My chicken was done in only one hour though and had I left it in the full time suggested it would have been like eating rubber bands so adjust your cook time accordingly! Next time I will thicken the sauce into a gravy for serving. I served it over egg noodles and would make this again with the above mentioned changes.

I changed a few things in this recipe by accident and I feel it turned out much better. First, I cut the amount of soy sauce in half because that was all I had left and it was definitely still salty enough. Half a cup would have been waaaaay too much. Second, I added turmeric instead of ginger because I didn't have ginger. I still really liked the flavor and not even sure what it would taste like with ginger. The big thing to save time was cooking it on the stove instead. First I slightly browned each side of the chicken breast in some oil in a pan that has a lid. Only a few minutes is fine. Then I added the sauce and covered and cooked on low for 25 minutes, turning once half way through. Last, after removing the chicken I added some cornstarch mixed in cold water to thicken the sauce. Never add cornstarch powder directly to hot sauce or it will clump together. Spoon the sauce over chicken. Still comes out tasty and moist in a quarter of the time!
