Braised Chicken with Vegetables
By Ahamefula Amachi

 

This month I was feeling in a rustic mood. I was looking for a 'no muss no fuss' meal you can prepare in one pot and eat for days. Chicken in a hearty tomato sauce is just what I needed. This dish can be accompanied by a starch or just eaten by itself. Another great thing about this recipe is that you can use just about any vegetable that your heart desires. In case you were wondering, yes, this is a potpourri type dish.
 
Ingredients:
 

  • 4 Whole Chicken Legs

  •  
  • 2 Lg White Onions Cut 1" Thick

  •  
  • 8 Cloves Garlic Minced

  •  
  • 1 Pint Yellow Patty Pan Squash 1/4'd

  •  
  • 1 pint Button Mushrooms 1/4'd

  •  
  • 2 Green Peppers Medium Dice

  •  
  • 3 Yellow Peppers Medium Dice

  •  
  • 1-10oz. Can Artichokes Hearts 1/4'd

  •  
  • 16 Oz. Beer (Pale Ale Of Your Choice)

  •  
  • 4oz. Cider Vinegar

  •  
  • 2-10oz Cans Stewed Tomatoes

  •  
  • 2oz. Blended Oil

  •  
  • Kosher Salt

  •  
  • Cracked Black Pepper

  •  
    Preparation:
     

    1) Preheat large saute pan over medium heat.
     
    2) Season chicken legs with kosher salt and cracked black pepper.
     
    3) Add oil to the pan.
     
    4) Place chicken legs in the saute pan with drum portion facing away from you and the thigh joint facing up.
     
    5) Let the chicken brown for approximately five minutes on the first side.
     
    6) Turn the legs over and let brown on that side for approximately four minutes.
     
    7) Add the onions and garlic to the pan and let them sweat until the onions start to become translucent.
     
    8) Add in the mushrooms and squash.(If too much moisture is released from the mushrooms and the squash increase the heat to medium high and let them cook down.) Add the vinegar and let reduce by half then add the beer and that reduce by half.
     
    9) Add in the stewed tomatoes and make sure the chicken is fully immersed in the liquid. If the liquid is too low add water. Bring to a simmer and reduce the heat to medium low and cover. (If you don't have a lid for the pan it can be covered with aluminum foil.)
     
    10) Let the chicken slow cook for half an hour or until the meat begins to fall off the bone.
     
    11) Remove the pan from heat and serve.
     
    **** If you have an oven safe saute pan you can preheat your oven to 325° and place the covered saute pan in the oven after you've added the tomatoes and the liquid comes to a simmer.
