This easy simmered chicken is flavored with tomatoes, onion, and a little wine.

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 broiler-fryer chicken, cut in serving size pieces (about 3 pounds chicken parts)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • fresh chopped parsley


Heat butter over medium heat in a large heavy skillet. Add chicken and brown on all sides; remove chicken.

Add onion to the skillet; saute for about 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add flour and garlic; stir until well blended. Whisk in wine and chicken broth; continue to cook, stirring constantly, until sauce is thickened.

Add half of the tomatoes, salt and pepper, and browned chicken. Cover and simmer for about 30 minutes, or until chicken is tender. Remove chicken to a hot serving platter and keep hot. Add remaining tomatoes to the skillet and simmer for 5 minutes. Pour sauce over chicken and garnish with a little chopped fresh parsley.

Serves 4.

Cut into 10 pieces (half breasts) Rub chicken with light seasoning (Cavender's & garlic powder) Up onion to 1/2 cup diced and add 1/4 C diced yellow or red sweet pepper. Increase flour to 1 1/2 Tbsp. & brown with veggies at last just before adding ..... 1/3C White vermouth and 2/3C Stock and add tsp garlic paste. Add tomatoes... test for salt & pepper, adjust. stir to combine sprinkle in 1/4 tsp dried oregano (do not stir) return chicken cover & simmer. Stunning. I can see this taking all kinds of flavors. Capers, Anchovy paste, basil, lemon, sausage, You name it. Fun starter recipe and Quick!
