Rioja wine, a dry red wine produced in the Rioja region of Northern Spain, gives this dish its characteristic flavor. But if you don't want to use alcohol, replace the wine with another cup of liquid (either orange juice or chicken broth). Also, if you're short on time, this chicken dish can be cooked on the high-heat setting for 4 hours.
