Like just about every food blogger I would love to eventually turn all my recipes into a cookbook… A dream that would be better furthered by actually posting recipes more then once a month! I’ll work on that; I swear (wonder how many times I’ve said that in the last year). Guess regular posting will yet again be a new years resolution for 2012.

An average week in our household means planning the menu and doing our grocery shopping on Sunday. We usually switch off on dinner, so neither of us get too burnt out on cooking. This was a random creation so I could make some lemon-dill roasted potatoes (they were great by the way). The chicken came out quite tasty and is well worth making again!

It had to cook for a while but was an easy main course to throw together. Mushrooms could be a good addition to this as well. I paired it with a salad and some lemon-dill roasted potatoes. This would also be great served over pasta.


Braised Chicken

4 chicken thighs

Black pepper and garlic powder

1 Tbs olive oil

½ medium onion, minced

3 cloves garlic, minced

½ bunch parsley, minced

2/3 c red wine

2 Tbs balsamic vinegar

1 can tomato sauce


Heat oil in a medium pan (with a lid) over medium-high heat. While the oil heats season the chicken with black pepper and garlic powder. Brown the chicken, about 5 minutes on each side. Add all remaining ingredients and cover the pan, stirring occasionally. When it comes to a boil, reduce he heat and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes.
