How to Make Vinegar-Braised Chicken and Mushrooms


  • 1Season both sides of chicken generously with salt and pepper.
  • 2Heat olive oil in a large cast-iron skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat and, in batches, brown chicken on all sides, then transfer to a separate plate and set aside.
  • 3Reserving 2-3 tablespoons, drain off fat and sauce carrots and onions until tender. About 10 minutes.
  • 4Add mushrooms and cook for another 6-8 minutes, or until softened, then add crushed garlic and sauce for 2 minutes.
  • 5Season everything with salt and pepper, vegetables (discarding garlic) to the plate with the chicken.
  • 6Sprinkle flour into the Dutch oven and cook for 1-2 minutes, whisking continuously, until pasty and smooth.

  • 8Return chicken to pot and add bay leaf, then bring mixture to a boil.
  • 9Reduce heat to low, partially cover your pot and let simmer for 35-40 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
