Braised Chicken Pinot Noir

Cook up the perfect, most tender chicken you have ever dreamed of.

To make braised chicken pinot noir, begin by preheating the oven to 350° F. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat in a Dutch oven. Place chicken breasts, skin side down, in the hot oil and brown 4-5 minutes or until golden. Turn and brown the other side approximately 4-5 minutes, then transfer to a plate and set aside. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in the Dutch oven and add onion. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 3-4 minutes or until softened. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds, then stir in tomatoes and cook for 1 minute. Add the wine and bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits on the sides or bottom of your pan. Add the chicken broth, oregano, and thyme and return to a boil. Return the chicken to the pan, skin side down and cover tightly and place in the oven. Cook 1 hour, rotating once or until chicken is thoroughly cooked and tender. Transfer Dutch oven to the stovetop.

Combine 1 tablespoon butter with flour. Add to pot with chicken and bring to a simmer to thicken.

Heat remaining 1 tablespoon butter over medium-high heat in a skillet or saute pan. Add the mushrooms and cook for 4-5 minutes or until browned. Transfer to your dutch oven with chicken, stir in chopped fresh basil, and adjust seasoning with salt and black pepper. Enjoy!

Pro Tip: Try serving this over your favorite type of pasta, spaghetti squash, or zucchini noodles! The creamy wine infused sauce creates pasta perfection.
