Hi Nancy Pugh,
You can use either white grape juice or chicken broth in place of white wine. One of the members posted, some time back, a lot of substitutions for lots of ingredients, especially wines.

P S I use wine when a recipe calls for it because I like the flavor it imparts. The alcohol itself cooks off and only a minute bit is left, if any. Wine is used mainly for deglazing a pan when cooking, in any case, so most of it is gone before you add other ingredients! One of the exceptions is Chicken Marsala. That is a yummy dish and one of our favorites!!!!

Vermouth: Apple cider; or apple juice mixed with lemon juice and water. Vodka: Water; apple cider or white grape juice mixed with lime juice. White wine: White grape juice; apple cider; apple juice; vegetable stock; or water.
When a recipe calls for white wine, is there a substitute? Alcohol cooks out, but yes, there is an alternative! What I do is, use white grape juice. Some times club soda or 7UP. But for the perfect taste, some times White Grape Juice is the best option! The one I recommend for this purpose, is Welches' White Grape.
