One of my favorite websites to look for recipes is called Simply Recipes, their dishes are, as the name suggests… simple, and therefore perfect for me. I got this recipe from Elise, who (I think) is the main writer for the site. Classic, simple, and finger-licking good!
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 cup thinly sliced onions
4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1/3 cup white wine
2 cups peeled and chopped, firm ripe tomatoes
- Rinse/clean chicken and pat dry.
- Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat, add the onions and garlic, cook until onions are soft and translucent, stirring occasionally.
- Push the onions to the side. Add chicken pieces, skin-side down. Cook until the chicken skin is golden brown, then turn pieces over and brown on the other side, takes about 8 minutes per side.
- Season chicken with salt and pepper, on both sides.
- Add wine and simmer until reduced by half. I don’t really know when exactly that is, so I usually just wait about 3-5 minutes.
- Add the tomatoes, lower the heat and cover the skillet with the lid slightly ajar.
- Simmer the chicken for about 40-50 minutes, turning the chicken occasionally so that all parts of the chicken is in contact with the liquid.
- Add some water if the liquid dries up, adjust the taste with salt
- I usually remove the skin just to be a bit more healthy
- Serve with pasta, rice or veggies! DELICIOUS!
- The left-overs for this dish are also very very good, as the liquid soaks into the chicken and the chicken becomes more tasty the next day.
