Braised Chicken And Mushrooms
For those of you that love chicken dinners, then this recipe is for you. Image tender chicken pieces cooked in a flavorful tomato mushroom sauce. Perfect for entertaining and simple enough for a weeknight dinner. I am a huge fan of mushrooms and love to use them in any way I can.
This Braised Chicken And Mushrooms recipe is awesome because it’s a one pot dinner. Serve it alongside some white rice and your meal is ready. The secret is in the sauce. It’s flavored with wine, broth and tomato. Just like those old french countryside recipes.
Don’t be intimidated by the word braised. It just means that the chicken was first browned and then cooked in a small amount of liquid. The browning caramelizes the skin of the chicken leaving it crispy. I used this method with beef as well because it makes the meat tender and creates a super flavorful sauce.
I haven’t tried this Braised Chicken And Mushrooms in the slow cooker but I am sure if you brown the chicken pieces first and then add the rest of the ingredients to the crock pot, it should turn out delicious as well. If you try it like this, let me know how it comes out.
I love this time of year, I crave more hearty meals like this one. It’s one of those things that you want to make extra just to have on hand when needed.
In case you’re wondering, you can use your favorite chicken parts or just a cut up chicken. The only things to keep in mind is that I prefer bone in chicken with the skin. It gives off crunchiness and has much more flavor without drying it out.
