How does white wine add flavor to a chicken stew?
White wine is a common ingredient in many dishes. It can be used to add flavor to a dish and also as a cooking liquid. White wine is often used in chicken stew, for example, because the acidity of the wine helps to break down the tough fibers of the chicken meat.
