    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    Sauerkraut simmered with vegetables, apple, and juniper berries is a perfect match for bacon and chicken thighs. The robust combination of flavors makes this a great hearty winter dish. Created by the staff of Food & Wine. For a white wine that will contrast nicely with the sauerkraut, look for a soft, full-flavored, and unoaked white. Gewürztraminer or pinot gris from Alsace in France are ideal choices.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large deep frying pan, cook the bacon over moderate heat until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and reserve.
    2. 2
      Season the chicken thighs with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and the pepper and add to the pan in batches if necessary. Cook, turning, until browned, about 8 minutes. Remove from the pan. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of the fat.
    3. 3
      Add the onion, carrot, and apple to the pan. Cook over moderate heat, covered, for 5 minutes. Stir in the sauerkraut, bacon, broth, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, the mustard, juniper berries, and bay leaf. Arrange the chicken in an even layer on top. Bring to a simmer, reduce the heat, and cook, covered, until the chicken is just done, about 25 minutes.
    4. 4
      Remove the chicken from the pan and discard the bay leaf. If too much liquid remains in the pan, raise the heat to moderately high and cook until slightly thickened. Serve the sauerkraut topped with the chicken.

      You have done it again, dear. This was exceptional. Chicken thighs are my favorite part of the clucker and I adore kraut...but I have never had them together! I didn't have any juniper berries, I'm afraid, so I drank gin martinis before dinner and it worked out very well, I think.

      This was so tasty! The juniper berries really made it for us. The chicken came out moist and tender, and all the veggies complimented each other very well. I'll take a picture of the leftovers tomorrow and post. Yummy! Thanks NcM! Made for ZWT 4.

      This was perfect! Juniper berries are not something we cook with very often. Cost us 12 cents at the local health store. What a great combination of flavors! The small bit of dijon balanced the stronger flavors. This is a perfect fall recipe!
