Posting for safe-keeping! I love the idea of cooking something to eat one night that has a specific use for another meal. Makes things so economical!

How to Make Wine and Tomato Braised Chicken with Second Night


  • 1For Wine and Tomato Braised Chicken: Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 4 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Crumble when cool.
  • 2Drain off all but 2 tbsp fat from the pan. Add onion and cook over medium heat, stirring, until softened, 3 to 6 minutes. Add garlic, thyme, fennel seeds, pepper, and bay leaf and cook, stirring for 1 minute. Add the wine, bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes, scraping up any browned bits. Add the chopped tomatoes and their juice and salt; stir well.
  • 3Place the chicken thighs in a 4 quart slow cooker. Sprinkle the bacon over the chicken. Pour the tomato mixture over the chicken. Cover and cook until the chicken is very tender, about 3 hours on High or 6 hours on Low. Remove the bay leaf. Serve sprinkled with parsley.
  • 4For Chicken Gumbo Soup: Brown the sliced smoked sausage over medium heat until nicely browned on each side. Remove the sausage from the skillet and drain on paper towels.
  • 5Add enough oil to equal 1 tbsp (depends on the fat rendered from your smoked sausage). Add the bell pepper and flour and cook, stirring, until the pepper is beginning to soften and the flour is golden brown, about 2 minutes.
  • 6Add the chicken, sauce, broth sausage, okra, rice and cayenne. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the flavors meld and the okra is tender, about 10 minutes.
