Ingredients For christoph's oven chicken

  • 2 lb
    chicken pieces (your choice)
  • 1 Tbsp
    rosemary, dried
  • 1 Tbsp
    thyme, dried
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp
    olive oil, extra virgin
  • 2 Tbsp
    white wine
  • 1 tsp

How To Make christoph's oven chicken

  • 1
    Preheat your oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit.
  • 2
    In a small saucepan, combine 1/2 cup of the wine, and 2 tbls of rosemary and 1 tbl of thyme.
  • 3
    Rinse your chicken pieces under cold water, pat each one dry with a paper towel, then place them in a casserole dish.
  • 4
    With a basting brush, coat each piece with olive olive. Generously sprinkle a little of the rosemary and thyme over each piece.
  • 5
    Splash each piece with a drinking wine of your choice. In this particular recipe, I prefer a Rhine wine, but a good red wine would work here, too.
  • 6
    Top each piece with a little pat of butter. I found that the butter that works best is Fleischmann's with olive oil.
  • 7
    Once your oven is preheated, start baking your chicken, basting every 15 minutes.
  • 8
    When the 45 minutes has expired, remove your chicken and turn on the broiler.
  • 9
    Place the chicken under the broiler for about 1-2 minutes. Do watch it carefully! The purpose of this step is to crisp the skin, but you don't want it to burn!
  • 10
    Once your chicken is finished under the broiler, remove the pan, and arrange the chicken pieces in a large bowl (yes, a bowl :))
  • 11
    Drain the juices from the pan into the sauce pan with the wine and herbs.
  • 12
    Boil until the mixture is rendered down by half.
  • 13
    Slowly pour the wine mixture over the pieces, ensuring each piece is coated.
  • 14
    Plate, and enjoy!!
