LOOKING for: Braised chicken, bone-in

Posted by linnea56 (My Page) on

I have several packages of chicken parts, all dark meat with bones and skin. I would like to braise this (in my new braising pan) but dont know what else to do with it beyond that.

When my brother in law was staying with us, he was great at using these cuts: said the chicken had more flavor when it was cooked on the bone. But now hes gone home and we have way too much of this in the freezer. I tried using some but it just tasted like chicken soup when it was done. Im not sure what he did that made it taste so good.

I dont want to eat the skin so would take it off either before or after cooking.

Something with balsamic vinegar and/or interesting spices would be a plus. Thanks!

I'd agree that chicken has more flavor on the bone. This recipe for oven-braised chicken is a simple one but it has a lot of flavor. I used bone-in breasts for the batch in the photo.

SHERRIED CHICKEN serves 4 or more

2 frying chickens (2 1/2 pounds each), halved
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 large onion, finely minced
1/2 cup dry sherry
1/4 cup honey

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread the butter on the chicken and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Arrange the chicken in one layer in a roasting pan. Add the onion, cover, and bake for 45 minutes to an hour.

Combine the sherry and honey in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Pour the sauce over the chicken and bake for 15 minutes more, uncovered, or until the chicken is tender. Serve with pan juices.

You can just substitute whatever chicken parts you favor for this:

2 TBL butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 minced garlic clove
1 1/2 TBL paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tomato, peeled & chopped
1 green pepper, seeded & chopped
3/4 cup chicken stock
One 3 lb broiler-fryer cut into pieces
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup half-and-half
1/2 cup sour cream

In a heavy kettle heat the butter, add the onions & garlic & saute until light brown (don't burn the garlic.) Add the paparika, salt, tomato, green pepper & stock. Cover & cook 10 minutes.
Add the chicken, cover & cook until tender, about 40 minutes. Remove the skin from the chicken breast & thighs & return the meat to the kettle. Add water or additional chicken stock, if ncessary to make 1 1/4 cups broth.
Add the flour blended w/the half-and-half & a little of the hot sauce & cook, stirring until thickened.
Ad the sour cream & cook just until heated through. Do not let boil. Serve over noodles or rice.~~Craig Claiborne
