Deziniki, Have never tried onions cooked like that, but I am definitely going to! They sound easy and good.
I do cook with wine, mostly white, never make chicken any way, without white wine. Will use Red wine for heartier things, where it seems to call for it. And I ocasionally drink Wine, so we always have it in the house.
Recipes that call for wine are always better with the wine than without. The alcohol isn't large enough to affect you and it cooks out anyway. My favorite onions for topping are inions cooked in white wine and garlic. You don't taste the wine taste, but it does something magical to the onions.
My reccomendation for a small amount of wine for cooking would either be a small box of wine with a spigot because the wine spoils a lot less slower (I cooked with a box for 2+ months once because air can't get in to spoil it), or to buy one of those small juice boxes of wine (Target has a large selection). They are only a couple of bucks and you don't have to worry about wasting money or wine. I do these tips more with red wine because I cook with red wine less.
We don't drink either but I do use those cheap cooking wines too and find they are pretty good. (all you real chefs feel free to gasp)If you boil the dish after the wine is added, there isn't any alcohol left.Yes and grape or apple juice or just more broth are all options. Pam

I'm not a drinker either, but I do use wine in cooking. Remember that the alcohol doesn't make it through the heating process. Usually, when wine is called for, it adds some subtle flavors that I like.
Cooking wine, while not generally recommended by real chefs, comes in relatively small bottles and is inexpensive.
This is the recipe of the day. I don't want to put in the white wine. I am not a wine drinker and don't want to spend the money for wine just to cook. Besides I don't like it. What should I add instead or do I really need it? I have been looking for ways to incorporate peppers into my meals without just eating them raw and this sounds so delicious.
