This is a chicken recipe that I made up and is a favorite in my house. It's great because you can cook it using your favorite parts of the chicken or just a whole chicken cut up. It's a special recipe made simple. And you don't have to add flour to thicken. Oh the smell along with the smell of jasmine rice will have everyone anticipating dinner tonight. Enjoy!
1Massage small amount of olive oil on chicken, sprinkle liberally with salt, black pepper, garlic powder. Add cayenne pepper (optional). Pour enough canola oil(or olive) in skillet to cover pan and keep chicken from sticking. Brown all chicken parts.
2Once chicken is brown add cut up onion and garlic to skillet with chicken. When onion is almost transparent pour wine to deglaze make sure you scrape up all the goodness at bottom of pan. (the smell will drive everyone crazy)
3Once deglazed with wine pour 1 and half cups of chicken broth that has been heated up to almost a boil over chicken. Throw in bay leaf. Let simmer on medium heat for about 10-15 minutes then add chopped cilantro stems and all, cover and cook like this for additional 20 minutes or so. Serve over jasmine rice or personal favorite.
