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.
