Favorite Winter Meals

What are some of my favorite winter meals? The Man's homemade chicken and dumplings, white chili, pasta and meat sauce, roast pork tenderloins, homemade mac and cheese and chicken in the oven. Chicken in the oven has to be my favorite winter meal. We've been eating this since I was a young girl. Now the Man makes it and he does a FANTASTIC job. We serve it with smashed potatoes and steamed fresh carrots, making sure to pour the gravy from the pan over the potatoes on our plates. Mmmmmmm. I'm hungry just looking at the picture.

Chicken in the oven

8 boneless, skinless chicken breast pieces
3 chicken bouillon cubes
12 oz package of mushrooms, sliced
Oregano
Sage
Rosemary
Marjoram
Parsley
Thyme
Garlic Powder
1 cup cooking wine, red or white
Water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the chicken breast pieces in a 9x13 pan, add the bouillon cubes, and layer mushrooms over the chicken and in between the pieces. Sprinkle the oregano, sage, rosemary, marjoram, parsley, thyme, and garlic powder over the chicken until moderately covered. (Don't be afraid you'll sprinkle too much. I've never over sprinkled, no matter how much of each spice I've put on!) Pour in the wine and enough water to have about 1/2 inch of liquid in the pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes, or until chicken juice runs clear. Baste the chicken every ten minutes or so to keep the tops from drying out.
