Wine & Tomato Braised Chicken

January/February 2011

Your rating: None Average: 3.6 (707 votes)

Here chicken thighs cook in a simple herb-infused tomato-and-wine sauce. The bone-in thighs give it plenty of hearty flavor, and since you cook them without the skin, it keeps the dish healthy. There’s plenty of sauce, so serve it over pappardelle or brown rice. Steamed broccoli or sautéed broccoli rabe tossed with olive oil and a splash of lemon juice complete the meal.

This dish is great. I personally do not think there is one thing wrong with this recipe. The flavors go together so well. I made steps 1 and 2 the night before and just stored in the fridge overnight. The next day I just put everything into the crockpot and cooked on low for 8 hours. I wouldn't change a thing. The next night there were plenty of leftovers and I just made them into a pizza. I added cheese, basil, oregano, banana peppers, roasted red peppers & mushrooms. Cooked on 400* for about 12 mins or so and there you go...another great meal that didn't even take like last night's dish! Very versatile dish! A must try!!

Terrific flavor and plenty of leftovers.
Pretty bland

This was very easy to make and overall pretty good, but it was rather bland. I livened it up by adding some hot sauce, garlic powder and a dash of lemon juice. Served it over some whole wheat noodles and it was an easy, healthy dinner. I didn't mind all of the sauce. I am eating it almost as a stew for lunch today.

Chicken was very tender
Very Bland

Although this was very easy to prepare it was incredibly bland. I would not make it again.

Easy to prepare
Great Chicken Dish

I'm always looking for easy slow cooker recipies and found this in my latest copy of Eating Well. My husband and I love it and will keep it as a go-to dish. I made the suggested gumbo the next day but probably would not make that again. It was rather bland.

Easy and flavorful.
Wine & Tomato Braised Chicken

This chicken is so wonderful and easy to prepare. As suggested, I prepared everything the night before and turned on my crock pot on in the morning. When I got home from work, I was afraid we would not have dinner since my better half had already eaten half. We ate the chicken and juice over orzo, therefore it did not seem like too much juice. There were not enought leftovers for the gumbo, but look forward to making it next time.
