Braised Chicken Recipes


Braised Chicken with Peppers

Chef Way: Andrew Carmellini brines chicken, then dries it for a few hours in the refrigerator. He stews the bird in a combination of veal and poultry stocks, then seasons it with his own peperonata.

Easy Way Don't brine or dry the chicken. Instead of making peperonata, add Peppadew (jarred peppers from South Africa) and olives while the chicken braises.
