Red Wine Braised Chicken


Serve this brightly colored chicken with heaps of rice to soak up the sauce.



  1. In a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat, combine the olive oil, garlic, onion, carrot, bell pepper, olives, thyme and basil.
  2. Sauté until the onion and pepper are just tender, about 8 minutes.
  3. Add the chicken and use tongs to turn and brown on all sides.
  4. Add the broth, wine and currant jelly.
  5. Mix well, bring to a simmer, then cover; reduce heat to simmer and cook for 25 minutes.
  6. Use tongs to transfer the chicken to a plate and cover with foil. In a small cup, mix together the cornstarch and water, then add to the Dutch oven.
  7. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 2 minutes.
  8. Season with salt and pepper.
  9. Serve the chicken with sauce ladled over it.
