Friday Night Chicken

As the holidays approach, the days get shorter and the to do lists seem to get longer.  During this time, I love making a homemade dinner that involves not much more than opening a bottle of wine and cooking some quick chicken thighs… a la Friday Night Chicken!  It is super easy to make and quick… and while the wine is open, you might as well have a glass!

Friday Night Chicken

Pieces:

  1. 3-4 chicken thighs
  2. 3 tbsp. vegan butter
  3. one half cup white wine
  4. one half cup chicken broth (gluten free)
  5. 2 tbsp. chopped parsley (fresh or dried)
  6. 1 tbsp. chopped dried basil
  7. salt and pepper to taste

Process:

  1. In a large saute pan, melt the 3 tbsp. vegan butter over medium heat.
  2. When the butter is melted, place the chicken thighs on top.  
  3. Sprinkle the parsley, basil, salt, and pepper evenly over each side of the chicken thighs.
  4. Let the thighs sit in the melted butter about 4 minutes each side, just until each side starts to brown.
  5. Add the wine and chicken broth.
  6. Cover and let simmer about 15-20 more minutes, until chicken is cooked through.
  7. Add more liquid if you need to so the chicken doesn’t burn, or take the lid off for the lats few minutes to let the liquid burn off.
  8. Serve hot with your favorite sides!
