Chicken Braised with Red Wine and Vegetables

Serves 4 to 6

This is one of my favorite Italian-inspired recipes for braised chicken. It is easy, delicious and quick enough for a weeknight dinner. The dried herbs add flavor, but the chicken is very tasty without them. Use any bone-in chicken parts you prefer and make in any amount needed. As with most braised chicken dishes, the skin can be removed before cooking without compromising flavor or moisture.

Ingredients

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add just enough oil to lightly coat bottom of pan. Add chicken and brown on each side, approximately 3 minutes per side. Add vegetables, salt and pepper. Add wine, enough water to cover bottom of pan, and optional seasonings. Bring to boil then lower heat to maintain a simmer. Cover and cook until chicken is done and potatoes are tender, about 50 minutes, checking occasionally and adding a little water if needed. (Do not add more water until the moisture evaporates.) Serve immediately.
