Brazilian Style Chicken

Once again, no photo.  I promise I will take one and add it to this post the next time I make this dish.  Anyway, here is this recipe for this simple, tasty weeknight dinner:

  • 4 chicken drumsticks
  • 4 chicken thighs
  • olive oil
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 red capsicums, thinly sliced
  • 3 roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbs garlic, crushed
  • 1 cup white wine
  • brown rice
  • broccoli
What you do:
  1.  Start cooking the rice.
  2. Score the skin on the meat with a sharp knife.  Sprinkly the chicken all over with salt and pepper.  Place large heavy frying pan on medium-high heat.  Drizzle oil into the hot pan and add the chicken, skin side down.  Cook for 5-10 minutes or until golden brown all over.
  3. Transfer to a plate and add onions to hot pan.  Sauté for a bit and then add garlic, capsicum, and tomato.  Sauté for a few minutes until capsicums have softened slightly.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Return chicken to pan and add 1 cup of white wine.  Cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  5. Serve with brown rice and steamed broccoli.  Enjoy!
