"Second Date" Chicken

In the early stages of dating I made this recipe for JT. I think it's true the quickest way to the heart is through the stomach...

2 or 3 fresh or thawed chicken breasts
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup olive oil
1 minced clove of garlic
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 cup white or Rosé wine

Tip: On weeknights when I get home, I'm too hungry to wait for chicken to thaw and then bake for an hour. Slip the chicken breasts into a gallon bag and leave in a bowl of warm water in your sink while you're at work. They'll be ready to go when you get home.

Preheat oven to 375. Arrange chicken breasts in a dish, overlapping if necessary. Don't be too worried about getting the measurements of the ingredients exact, it will come out delicious however you make it.

Drizzle soy sauce and olive oil over chicken. Sprinkle with garlic, ginger, oregano, and brown sugar.

Lightly drizzle wine over everything, moistening the brown sugar. Cover the dish with foil and bake 50 minutes to 1 hour. Serve with rice.

The result: JT is still around.
