Spanish Braised Chicken with Sherry and Saffron

I know, I know, here I am with another braised chicken recipe. Well, whatever, it seems to be the thing to do these days. At least in my world. Or in my house. I’m not saying you have to do it, but here is another option to tempt you. This one seems kind of weird, but I was able to convince K when he knew egg would be in the sauce and on top. That sounds like a win for him.  I’d rate this dish as middling-fussy. You have to do a little stove cooking and then wait for a bit with it in the oven, and then finish with a sauce. But, you could read a book during the oven time, browse the internet, play a video game…I don’t know what you people without kids do with your free time. I don’t remember free time. Aaaaannnnyyyway, if you have made braised chicken before and want to try something different, or just were waiting for a different recipe to make you start braising chicken, here you go.

Mixed Bag (Part 5): Braised Chicken and a Sweet Treat

I’ve mentioned before…I’ve been braising a bunch of chicken thighs recently. For whatever reason, I keep finding new recipes for it that look appealing. It’s a fairly straightforward style of cooking the chicken with ways you could adapt it to your tastes. The one I am showing today is a Moroccan style one. I also am sharing a lesser hit. It was okay…but not worth a full blog post. Some cookies from a fellow blogger…read ahead to find out.

Creamy Champagne and Garlic-Braised Chicken

Usually I avoid recipes with bone-in, skin-on chicken. It causes for some extra work at the dinner table, and K is not a big fan of it. I am willing to put up with it, but understand the annoyance. Anyway, when I do make one of these dishes, it had better be tasty and there had better be a reason for the bones and skin. This dish is pretty straightforward and delicious. Everyone was a fan, and the bones aren’t a big deal when the meat is almost falling off of them anyway.
