This was not very tasty; lack of flavors.
North Country Braised Chicken
Homey, hearty and flavorful, this easy chicken stew recipe sings with apple cider, rutabaga and pears. Serve over whole-wheat egg noodles or spaetzle.
5 Reviews for North Country Braised Chicken
I was excited to try this recipe, since I like pears and rutabagas. I followed the directions to the letter, then added some extra thyme and salt and pepper to try to boost the flavor after tasting it. Not sure what exactly is missing - but the result wasn't very flavorful, even with the extra seasonings.
This is a really delicious simple meal. The recipe makes a lot of food. The serving size is filling. The chicken actually takes a bit longer to cook. So maybe next time I'd try putting the chicken in to finish cooking when I put the pears in. Other than that, I'd say it was a great dish.
I just made this for dinner last night—actually, made a half batch, as I live alone and didn't want too many leftovers. It was pretty simple to make, and I was very pleased with the final product.
I must admit, I had never bought or eaten a rutabaga before, and I found it slightly intimidating. But it went amazingly well with the pears and spices in this recipe. And the breading on the chicken added a touch of decadence, making it feel like a special treat.
My one complain is that it all took quite a bit longer to cook than the recipe recommended, so I had to wait about 30 more minutes to finally taste my supper. But that was most likely because the chicken was not entirely thawed by the time I started—still slightly frozen in the very center.
I will definitely be making this one again.
Loved the idea and the actual product. Easy to make, too.
