Wash chicken and pat dry; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat; cook chicken slowly until browned, turning to brown both sides. Remove chicken pieces to an 11x7 or 13x9-inch baking dish. Add mushrooms to the skillet and sauté until tender. Add soup to skillet then slowly stir in wine. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Pour sauce over chicken. Cover baking dish with foil and bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes. Uncover and bake 20 to 25 minutes longer, until chicken is tender and juices run clear. Serve with hot cooked rice or noodles.
