Not your same ol' same ol' chicken recipe

Ok..Ok I know. Its been quite a while since I posted a recipe.  Been making the same ol' same ol'.  But tonight I was feeling creative. So here is a new chicken recipe!  I am always trying to find a new way to make chicken and I think I found a keeper.

Braised Chicken

2-3 tbsp oil

6 drumsticks (or chicken thighs)

2 tbsp butter

1 yellow onion diced

2 garlic cloves crushed

1-28 oz can diced tomatoes

1 small bag of frozen green beans

seasonings needed:



garlic powder

cayenne (use for spicy version)

red pepper flakes (spicy version)

pinch of sugar

Heat large pan with oil on high

Season chicken with first 3-4 seasonings

Brown chicken...1-2 min per side. Remove from pan and set aside.

Add butter to pan. Add onion and garlic. Stir about 5 times. Add can of diced tomatoes with juice.

Season with 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, dash of cayenne and red pepper flakes if using, and pinch of sugar.

Bring to simmer and lower heat to med low. Cook for 10 min. Add green beans.

Put browned chicken back in pan. Cover pan and cook for 20 min. Turn chicken over. Cover and cook another 25 min.

Serve over brown or white rice. Maybe even mashed potatoes.
