Rachael Ray's Tuscan Chicken

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Ciocia Laura

This is a favourite from 30 Minute Meals although I alter it a bit. For example, it works out quite well with all bone-in dark meat. Some sherry or cider vinegar can be substitued for some of the wine and wine vinegar. I have been liberal with cooking time since leaving the bone in increases the cooking time. Preparation is VERY easy, though -- despite the number of steps which are truly easy.

I made this last night and simplified it quite a bit. Just sauteed shallot and garlic in oil, added chicken, browned on both sides, added rosemary, wine, vinegar (1/2 balsamic and 1/2 tarragon) and finally 1 can of beeth broth...Let it steep on low for about 15 min... voila! It was very tasty and I will make it again.
