Ingredients Nutrition


  1. pour a good amount of flour onto a plate. Add 1 teaspoons salt and 3 or 4 grinds of pepper. Mix together, and coat chicken pieces, shaking off excess flour.
  2. Preheat a pan that has a lid on high heat. Once heated, add olive oil, swirling to coat bottom of pan. Add chicken pieces and brown on both sides. Remove chicken to a plate and turn off heat. If there are any scorched bits in the pan, rinse and pat dry with paper towels.
  3. Preheat pan again on medium high heat. Once heated, add butter and stir until melted. Add onion and garlic and fry for a few minutes, but don't let the butter burn. Add chicken pieces back into pan and pour in chicken broth and wine.
  4. Add bay leaves, rosemary, basil, 1/2 teaspoons of salt, and 3 -4 grinds of pepper. Stir a bit to spread spices around, and bring to a boil. Once boiling close lid and turn down to low heat. Let simmer for 1 hour, turning chicken pieces over with tongs every 20 minutes or so. Enjoy!
  5. Note: Sauce tends to reduce quite a bit, so if you want more sauce, add more chicken broth after half an hour or so.

This recipe came out so good . I just finished making it with the garlic and rosemary baby potato recipe. The only thing is that I wouldn't recommend adding more salt if you made it with chicken broth.

I had the pleasure of making this last night, its as fast to put togeather as it says and tastes great. Since I had not chicken broth I did end up putting water in and what I found is I (for personal taste) needed to add a little extra salt. I figure the chicken broth does have some sodium content, which next time I make I'll have on hand. Again. Excelent.
