Lyon-Style Chicken With Vinegar Sauce

"From Food & Wine, Oct 2011. This is a wonderful, easy chicken dish that is perfect for the vinegar lover in your life! I made it with legs and thighs, but any chicken pieces will work. Just check early for the white meat to be done if you are using it. This makes enough sauce to nicely coat all of the pieces, but not enough to spoon over rice or noodles. If you like lots of sauce, I'd suggest you double that part of the recipe."

directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F In a large deep ovenproof skillet, heat the oil. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, add to the skillet and cook on all sides until browned. Add 1 Tablespoon butter, and swirl the pan to coat the chicken. Turn chicken skin side up, and add the garlic and bay leaf.
  • Place the skillet in the oven, and bake about 8 minutes, or until the breast pieces are just cooked through. Transfer the breast pieces to a plate, and keep warm. Add the vinegar to the skillet, return to the oven, and continue to bake the remaining pieces, basting a few times, until the chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes longer. Transfer the chicken and garlic to a plate and keep warm.
  • Back on the stovetop, add the stock to the skillet and boil, scraping up any browned bits, and reduce the liquid to about 1 1/4 cups, about 10 minutees. Whisk in the creme fraiche and remaining butter. Return the chicken and garlic to the skillet along with any accumulated juices. Simmer over medium high heat, basting a few times, until the sauce thickens slightly and the chicken is heated through. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve over steamed rice.

"I live near Seattle, WA with my husband of 11 years and our pet ferrets. We're lucky enough to own a home with a big, south facing yard which is great for entertaining. It also allows me to have a big vegetable garden where I grow most of my own herbs and a lot of the vegetables we eat in the summer, as well as a bunch to share with family and friends. In my professional life, I'm an accountant- but what I really love to do is cook and eat! Most of my ability is self-taught. I love to experiment with new recipes and techniques, most of which I get from watching way too much food tv and reading foodie magazines. Recently I decided to start a personal chef business and have cooked for a few clients. I love the challenge of designing a menu to fit a family's specific tastes and needs, and then cooking it for them to enjoy. For me, cooking is an expression of love. Everyone needs to eat, but food is more than just fuel for the body, it can nurture and comfort ~ give us a memory from childhood, or a retreat when we feel ill. I always think of the people who I'm cooking for when I make a dish, and there is no better compliment than when someone enjoys the food I've made especially for them. I also like to do OAMC- style cooking, but instead of using it mainly to get dinner on the table, I focus on getting lunch in the bag! Eating out is far too expensive in both dollars and nutrition to make a habit of, yet I want a hot, satisfying meal to enjoy in the middle of the day. Cookin ahead allows me to have great food, without sacrificing either my dollars or my waistline. <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif"><img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/participantbannerzwt5.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg"><img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/AMpageSticker.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r317/j_welcome/pics2/food/PRMRcopy.jpg"><img src="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/Recipezaar%20Album/iplaytagin.jpg">[IMG] http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e95/momaphet/Food/banner10.jpg[/IMG]"

    Wowee, this was yummy! We are a vinegar-loving family from the 2 year old up, and it was a perfect fit for us. I used 3 lbs of drumsticks and thighs instead of a whole chicken, and based on personal preference I removed the skins. Despite having several steps this couldn't have been easier to throw together (especially since you don't have to peel the garlic!) and I loved that I really only had two dishes to wash afterward. All in all a keeper! Made for ZWT 8: The Wild Bunch.
