PF Kitchen: Tomato and Wine Braised Chicken





Edwardsville and Glen Carbon Weight Loss Nutrition Coach


4 slices bacon (or turkey bacon)
1 large onion, thinly sliced
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon fennel seeds
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1 bay leaf

1 cup dry white or red wine

Tip: If you prefer, substitute 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth mixed with 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice for the wine.
1 can fire roasted diced tomatoes, drained

1 teaspoon salt
10 bone-in chicken thighs (about 33⁄4 pounds), skin removed, trimmed
1⁄4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley




Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 4 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Crumble when cool.
Drain off all but 2 tablespoons fat from the pan. Add onion and cook over medium heat, stirring, until softened, 3 to 6 minutes. Add garlic, thyme, fennel seeds, pepper and bay leaf and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add wine, bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes, scraping up any browned bits. Add tomatoes and their juice and salt; stir well. Removed from pan.

Salt and pepper chicken thighs, then add to pan on medium to high heat, lightly browning each side before removing.
Place chicken in a 4-quart (or larger) slow cooker. Sprinkle the bacon over the chicken. Pour the tomato mixture over the chicken. Cover and cook until the chicken is very tender, 3-4 hours on Low. Remove the bay leaf. Serve sprinkled with parsley. Serve chicken and sauce over brown rice with steamed or sautéed broccoli.
