Cooking wine.

I'm 99.99999999% sure that you don't get carded for it. Basically because only the most desperate drunk would actually drink it.

chicken stock is a better replacement. Add a bit of vinegar to mimic the bite that wine will give you.

beer is a completely different taste than wine

add vinegar, though ull need to use something less strong than white vinegar

balsamic or sherry

Red wine is used in cooking for a couple different things. Mainly, it's used for flavoring and aromatics, although it can also be used to tenderize meat, deglaze pans for sauces, and for thinning down dishes (used in long-cooking stews/soups). DO NOT use vinegar on a 1-to-1 ratio as red wine, or your dish will be foul (pun intended).

does your recipe already call for chicken broth? When does it come into your dish?

no it doesnt call for broth already, and the wine is used durring the actual cooking of the chicken, it goes in at the same time as tomatoes, oregano, and the olives.

chicken broth and red wine vinegar would be the best substitute. won't taste the same, but it won't taste bad.

cooking wine is a bad idea...only cook with wine you'd drink.

There's also red wine vinegar. Which is basically wine that has gone beyond the point of no return.

Cooking wine is wine that has been salted (to prevent it from becoming vinegar.) But cooking wine is your best bet if you don't want to get carded. I wasn't carded when I bought a bottle, and it's sold on Sundays, so I assume it isn't treated like regular alcohol.
