Chicken in a wine sauce

This is a very nice, simple chicken dish.


(Serves 2-3)


  1. Start by heating the oil in a frying pan. Brown the chopped onion and garlic for a few minutes.
  2. Take the chicken pieces and brown them with the onion and garlic mixture. Brown the pieces evenly, turning often. This should take about 5 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle a little flour over the chicken. Add salt and pepper if desired.
  4. Add the wine and remaining ingredients. Reduce heat and simmer covered for 1 hour.


This dish is best served over rice. Check the amount of wine in the pan every so often. Add a little more if needed.


Difficulty: easy.
Time: 10 minutes preparation, 1 hour cooking.
Precision: no need to measure.
