Chicken

Rustic Marsala Braised Chicken

This dish makes me think of rustic Italian food

Simple ingredients, some form of wine and a love of food and flavors that can only be explained as personal and comforting

We are cooking for just the four of us, hence 4 chicken thighs which I trim of any excess fat and skin

Next you will need kosher salt, ground black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika

Season the skin side first

Heat 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil in an oven proof pan

Place your thighs skin side down to start searing them, season the other side and cook 6-8 minutes

Flip and cook another 4 minutes

Remove your thighs from the pan and set aside

Peel and slice 1 large onion and slice 6 ounces of mushrooms

Add your onions and mushrooms into your pan, scraping up the bits from the seared chicken

Cook 6-8 minutes or until the onions and mushrooms start to soften

Next you will need 1 1/2 – 2 cups of Marsala wine and at least 10 peeled garlic cloves.  The garlic will actually roast and soften and will add a nutty and delicious flavor to this dish

Now I know you can get Marsala cooking wine in any grocery store and you will be fine, however if you want to take this dish and even a traditional chicken Marsala dish to the next level, get your Marsala wine at an actual wine store

You will get so much more flavor and depth then a store bought cooking wine

The saying goes, if you wouldn’t drink it, don’t cook with it

Add your whole garlic cloves to the pan and cook 2 minutes, then pour in your Marsala and bring to a boil

Preheat your oven to 350 F

Nestle your chicken thighs into the pan and place into the oven

Cook for 35-45 minutes or until the chicken reaches 170 F,  or until your desired temperature

Sprinkle with 1/4 cup of fresh chopped parsley

Serve this delicious rustic chicken dish with pasta, rice, crusty bread or a salad

You won’t be disappointed!
