Chicken Braised in Cider with Root Vegetables Recipe

Provided By
Spend a few minutes on preparations, then let this tasty one-pot meal cook itself. The amount of each vegetable needn't be exact, but for fullest flavor include some of all three. Herbs can be varied as you wish, one or a mixture. If preferred, use sweet cider instead of hard cider. The finished dish will be somewhat sweeter and a little less tangy.

  • Salt and pepper chicken. Heat olive oil and butter in heavy pan (medium heat) and brown chicken, 4-5 minutes each side. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Add onion to pan and cook 2-3 minutes to soften. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for another minute. Add cider and cook, stirring occasionally to dissolve any browned bits, for 5- 10 minutes, until reduced by about half.
  • While the cider reduces, peel potatoes, rutabagas and carrots. Cut into approximately 1 inch pieces.
  • Add vegetables to cider. Salt and pepper very lightly. Arrange chicken on top, pouring over any juices from the chicken. Strew chopped herbs on top and cover snugly. If lid is loose, fit a layer of aluminum foil tightly over the pan; put lid on top of foil.
  • Adjust heat to maintain a slow simmer and cook until chicken and vegetables are tender, about 45 minutes.
  • Serve in shallow bowls with pan juices spooned over chicken and veggies.
