    I'm not seeing the ingredient of wine? How much?

    A recipe with a gorgeous presentation! The sauce is delicious and compliments the seasoned chicken beautifully. I used halved boneless, skinless chicken breasts instead of the tenders and I used chicken stock in place of the white wine. I think our plums were too tart for this dish and we may need to wait a bit longer to get some of summer's sweeter fruit but I will definitely try this dish again and will hopefully be able to give it a higher rating!
