Chicken Vesuvio image

Chicken in a white-wine garlic sauce. This recipe was taken from food network - Rachel's Tasty Travels, but I alter it & use boneless, skinless breasts instead of a whole chicken, so it is a little leaner. Also, you can add frozen (or fresh) peas to the dish right when it comes out of the oven.
