The Best Braised Chicken With Dried Plums

This recipe is from one of Martha's older cookbooks. It makes ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS chicken, one of my all-time favorites. It's easy to make and is such a comforting and flavorful meal on a cool night. Best when served over mashed potatoes.

ingredients

directions

  • In a heavy pot or skillet (with a lid), heat oil over medium-high.
  • Season chicken with salt & pepper. Cook in 2 batches until browned, 8-9 minutes, flipping once. Transfer to a plate.
  • To pot, add onion and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until onion begins to brown, 5-7 minutes. Reduce heat if necessary.
  • Add flour, cook, stirring, 1 minute.
  • Add wine and chicken along with any accumulated juices.
  • Add bay leaves (if using).
  • Cover and cook until chicken is opaque throughout, 8-10 minutes (or thirty if your pan sucks too!). Stir in prunes.
  • If you prefer the sauce to be less watery, remove lid, and continue to cook on medium heat until the sauce reduces to the desired consistency.
  • Remove bay leaves, and serve with polenta or mashed potatoes to catch the savory sauce.
