This White Wine & Herb Braised Chicken and Potatoes is a dish that will make your family or friends smile when you set it down on the table. Even though it has a long name, it is a hassle-free dinner that will make everyone go back for seconds. I highly recommend just taking this pan from the stove top to the table and letting everyone dig in. You won’t even have to wash the pan you cooked it in after everyone eats everything!

The white wine, butter and herb sauce that coats the chicken and potatoes is to die for! After all my chicken and potatoes were gone off my plate, I was trying to scrape as much of the sauce off the plate as I could. Grab some crunchy bread and dip it on in! You won’t regret it. Life is too short to not eat as much of the wine, butter and herb sauce that you can.

  • Author: KJ & Company - Kate Poskochil
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 1 hour
  • Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 lb baby yukon potatoes, halved
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons chopped garlic
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. In a large braising skillet that has a fitted lid, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Evenly season both sides of the chicken thighs with salt and pepper. Sear the chicken thighs in the braising skillet for about 5 minutes on each side, or until they are evenly browned. Don’t worry about cooking them all the way through yet. Remove them from the pan and set aside.
  2. Add the butter into the pan and then sauté the onion until slightly translucent, about a few minutes. Add in the potatoes, rosemary, parsley and garlic and continue to sauté until the potatoes are slightly browned on the outside but avoiding any burning, about 5 minutes. Deglaze the pan with the white wine and chicken stock, making sure to scrape off the bottom of the pan while doing so.
  3. Rearrange the potatoes to make room for the chicken thighs. Nestle the chicken thighs back into the pan with the potatoes and sauce. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pan with a lid and let simmer for 30 minutes. Remove the lid and let simmer for an additional 15 minutes to allow the sauce to reduce and thicken slightly.
  4. Serve the chicken and potatoes with the sauce ladled over the top.

Notes

You can use chicken thighs, breasts, or drumsticks for this recipe! You can also choose to have the skin and bone included, but will just need to discard prior to serving or serve bone-in.
