      If I was going to make this I would cook it in a covered dutch oven at 450 for 30 minutes and lower the oven temp to 250 for at least 4 hours(YES 4 hours). At that point it is no longer wine or alcohol.....

      You may use vinegar. I suggest Bragg's apple cider vinegar or other mild vinegar. Wine is primarily used not only for flavor but the acidic nature tends to brighten the other flavors and tenderize the chicken. Vinegar does nearly the same thing.

    This recipe is a good candidate for a pressure cooker. Pressure will seal in all the wonderful flavors.

    Could use vinegar instead of wine but recommend a nice Chianti vinegar or red wine vinegar =)

    My family really loves this one. It's very tasty and relatively easy to make. I omit the flour, I always add more bacon, garlic, and herbs. (I typically don't need 12 thighs, 8 is plenty for a family of 5) I serve this over wide egg noodles.

    I have had this chicken dish many time's, a little bit goes a long way as it is quite rich, i also prefere mashed garlic potato's instead of roasted. Add little baby mushrooms to the vegtables as well. ENJOY
