White Wine Fondue

    1 hour 15 minutes

    Forget the rich, calorie-heavy cheese fondues, this is a light, and almost guilt-free way to enjoy fondue for chicken, rabbit or veal. Any left over fondue can be strained, and frozen in ice cube trays for adding flavour to stews or soups at a later time.

    Absolutely fabulous; loved this recipe, was so sure I would be missing the familiar much lovde tastes of traditional cheese or oil fondue, wich I do so love. But no, this much healthier version dose not disappoint. All the fun and flavor of traditional fondue without all the guilt.I doubled the spices as well as the wine as others had suggested and was not disappointed but I neglected to strain the wine spice mixture before cooking, not a problem until near the end when the wine had cooked down quite a lot and you did come into up close contact with the spices (in your mouth) not good. In the future I maylet the spices simmer with the wine for some time but would try to strain them out befor too long. I made this for a friend after a long day at work; she came over for a glass of wine and was so suprised and delighted. It was so easy I was almost embarrassed, we had shrimp,scallops,chicken,green pepper, onion and mushrooms to cook.Evreything was good but the shrimp jumped out as the star, plumped up by the wine it would literally burst in your mouth with an unexpected explosion of flavor.I only purched a handful of each at the local supermarket on the way home. The scallops were also tasty not at all rubbery, but next time I will buy the larger size.Next in prefence were probaly the mushrooms also magnifing and compounding the flavors.The chicken was good but did not compare to the seafood. I would recommend this recipe to evreyone.  -  10 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Nice fondue recipe! I used a Chardonnay that I found for $3.50 (haha) that was great for cooking! I was worried it was going to be a little strong so I added a cup of chicken broth (not the low sodium kind) and omitted the salts. I also added some crushed garlic, a spring of thyme, and some chopped parsley. Versatile recipe. The alcohol is definately strong at first. Let it boil a bit if if you'd rather it cook out a bit. I used this with chicken strips, shrimp (they cook fast!), sea scallops, and mushroom. YUM.  -  03 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    this was good. It surprised me it's not something I would normally cook but chicken cooked this way was delish and save the leftover fondu and freeze in ice cube trays to flavor stews or soups. thanks marc  -  07 Feb 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
