Red Wine Braised Chicken

This dinner is so scrumptious & flavorful! Braising the chicken in the red wine gives it an AMAZING flavor! Not only is it so delicious, it is actually quite simple to make!
Let's get to cooking!

Red Wine Braised Chicken
  • 4 chicken quarters (bone-in, skin on)
  • 1/2 pound bacon, diced
  • 4 large carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 yellow onion, medium diced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 cups red wine 
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup WEDO banana flour (for coating chicken)
  • avocado oil 
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • fresh chives, for garnish
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 

Season chicken quarters with salt, pepper, and then toss in banana flour. Lightly coat a dutch oven with avocado oil over medium-high heat. Once hot, add in chicken quarters and fry for about 5 minutes per side, or until skin is crispy. Set aside on a baking sheet.

Heat more oil in the dutch oven with chicken bits over medium-high heat. Once hot, add in onion and garlic. Saute for about 3 minutes, or until translucent. Add in bacon and cook until crispy, then add in carrots and mushrooms. Saute until carrots are almost completely soft. Pour in red wine and let come to a boil and reduce slightly. Add in chicken stock and let come to a boil again. Add chicken quarters back to pan, cover with top, and bake for about 1 hour. Enjoy!
