Today, I was looking on the web for low sodium recipes and this one stood out. I've never made chicken this way before and it was absolutely delicious! My wife and 3 kids ate it up with no leftovers. There was lots of garlic which we love and it had a creamy, tangy sauce that you pour over after it is all cooked. I also liked this because it was a lower sodium recipe, but you would never know it. No loss of flavor at all without the salt. Give this a try, you won't be disappointed.
Chicken in Garlic-Vinegar Sauce
From EatingWell: January/February 2009
Braising chicken in vinegar and herbs is a very popular way of cooking in Mediterranean Europe. Often paired with sweet sausage, this is a gutsy, wholesome dish that can be made a day ahead. Serve with whole-wheat couscous tossed with fresh herbs and steamed broccolini.

It was delicious, and very satisfying. Will certainly make it again. Used chicken breasts and served on brown rice to keep sodium low. Didn`t taste at all like a low-sodium meal.
50 minutes definitely made for overcooked chicken, but the sauce is very tasty. We had it over brown rice the first night and over multi-grain pasta with leftovers the next day.
We loved this dish. I served it with herb-tossed boiled potatoes instead of couscous and Frenchgreen beans. I used 20 cloves of garlic because we really love garlic. Didn't have sour cream, but Greek yogurt was fine instead. 50 minutes would have been too long to simmer; I stopped at 25, and it was cooked perfectly.
Great dinner for the whole family -- kids to picky father-in-law all enjoyed it. I only wish I made more for leftovers. Super easy to make!
