This is a great, easy, tasty, weeknight chicken dinner that makes the most of a one-pot chicken recipe! The combination of lemon and white wine is incredible, and pan frying in cast iron before braising in the oven makes a delicious tasing moist chicken with crispy skin! It's almost like chicken piccata... except different.
