  • Delicious! There was enough liquid in the pan to cover with a lid and cook over medium heat. - 3/13/16

  • Read where others were complaining about the saltiness so only used one tbs of soy sauce and I used the sherry instead of the white wine. It was delicious! Leftovers will taste great in a salad or wrap - 1/21/16

  • Wow! This one's another "KEEPER."
    Concur with the earlier sodium comments even though I only used 4 tbls of low-sodium Tamari.
    Next time will try 2 and see if that's enough. Not having pineapple juice on hand, used 1 tbls of pure Maple Syrup. Tasty!
    Total time start to serve was about 40 mins. - 11/16/15

  • Was great...super easy..will probably cut the soy down a bit but it was really good. Key for sure is to use wine you wouldn't mind having a glass of...stuff you wouldn't normally drink will effect your finished product. - 5/29/12

    Ohhh! Nice ideas. It is a bit strong and salty, but this was one way to get my family to east chicken breast. :)

    I don't know what I did, but it tasted nasty. No one would touch it. Maybe I used the wrong white wine??? - 1/25/11

    Hi, a good white wine that you like the taste of does help. The soy sauce is a bit salty, so I use a sweeter wine than I would in otherwise drink. I hope this helps.

  • Terrible.... the recipe called for way too much soy sauce. I think it should be 4 tsp and not tblsp. - 7/8/09

    I think maybe the original recipe as given to me years ago by my mother-in-law did make about 1/2 of the sauce that I make with mine. I just really happened to like it. Let me know if you find a tasty adaptation.
