This recipe is adapted from Down Home with the Neelys. I thought it might be helpful for all the single women. It helped Gina snag a cute one! It was the talk of the lunchroom and it smells delicious. It also makes wonderful leftovers. You might consider adding garlic!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Pat chicken dry with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper. Brown the chicken, meat-side down first, and turning once, about 4 minutes on each side. Transfer to a plate to reserve.
  3. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of oil from the pan.
  4. Add onion to the pan and saute until tender, roughly 3 minutes. Add the stock and wine and stir, scrapping any brown bits off the bottom of the pan. Turn heat to high and reduce by half, about 3 minutes.
  5. Pour in the crushed tomatoes and add the dried herbs and lemon pepper. Add the chicken thighs back inches Cover and cook on medium low for 40 minutes.
  6. Remove chicken from liquid and serve on hot buttered rice. Ladle the sauce on top and garnish with fresh chopped parsley.

I too saw this on TV and thought we would love it...I really was unimpressed with the taste, I was expecting more pop....probably will not make again, really just was not our favorite.

I changed things around a little here, but nothing drastic, & the resulting chicken dish was OUTSTANDING! I did mince a clove of garlic for this recipe & used chicken breasts! I used the lemon pepper rather than S&P to season the chicken, then served it with brown rice! Definitely a full-of-flavor keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe cooking game]

My husband and I liked this, but my brother and his wife raved, so 4 stars it is. I'd call it "down home" simmered chicken. I served it with rice, a green salad with apples. blue cheese & candied pecans, corn on the cob. My Mom would have been in her element.
