Chicken with Vinegar Sauce

Yields: 4 Servings Difficulty: Medium Prep Time: 25 Mins Cook Time: 35 Mins Total Time: 1 Hr

When I first tried a classic version of vinegar chicken in Tours, France, I wished it was tangier. So, back home, I add a hefty amount of Banyuls wine vinegar to the sauce. I just love the way the vinegar froths up when you add it to the pan. I finish the chicken in the sauce to infuse it with extra flavor 🙂

  • Preheat the oven to 450°. In a large, deep skillet, heat the oil. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, add to the skillet and cook over moderately high heat until browned. Add 1 tablespoon of the butter to the skillet and swirl to coat the chicken. Turn the chicken skin side up and add the garlic and bay leaf.
  • Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake the chicken for 8 minutes, until the breast pieces are just white throughout. Transfer the breast pieces to a plate. Add the vinegar to the skillet, return to the oven and bake the remaining chicken, basting a few times, until cooked through, 15 minutes longer. Transfer the chicken and garlic to the plate.
  • Add the chicken stock to the skillet and boil, scraping up the browned bits, until reduced to 1 1/4 cups, about 10 minutes. Whisk in the crème fraîche and the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Return the chicken to the skillet along with any accumulated juices. Simmer over moderately high heat, basting a few times, until the sauce thickens slightly and the chicken is heated through, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve with the Herbed Steamed Rice.

Notes

Serve with Herbed Steamed Rice and red Burgundy :)
