    Very flavorful, with just the right amount of zip! I was only able to let it marinade for 1 1/2 hours, but it still turned out great. Towards the end of cooking, I chopped up a green onion and tossed it in the pan, then added about 1/4 cup of the red wine. I let the wine reduce and, after plating the chicken, poured it over the top. Served with broccoli and rice. This recipe is a definite keeper!  -  18 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
