Comfort Chicken with Potatoes

There is nothing more delicious than comfort food. I’m stating this here and I am ready to confirm it anywhere! Specially recently comfort food is what I need. I’ve been really busy at work trying to get a promotion and a raise, with all the frustration and fatigue that comes with it; I’m setting up my little translation agency for language and business services (you can already check out the website, even if it’s still “under construction”;  I’ve been really worried over my mom who is having some health problems that I hope we’ll manage to solve soon, and a bunch of other things have made of these last weeks a really, really stressful period for me! Thus coming back home, make and taste some comfort food made me feel better. It really did! It’s like drinking a cup of chicken soup when you have a cold!…

…alright, let’s make this chicken with potatoes!

Ingredients (for 4 servings):

  • 1 kg of chicken (tights, breast, wings, whatever you like)
  • 2 big potatoes
  • 1-1/2 cups of chicken broth
  • 1 cup of dry white wine
  • salt, black pepper, theme and rosemary
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic

Cut the chicken into pieces and take off the skin (you can leave it if you are in that kind of things, I personally prefer my chicken without its skin off…)

Take the potatoes, peal off the skin and cut’ em into small cubes

In a pan heat oil, garlic and chicken. Add salt, herbs and black pepper

cook on both sides

Pour in 1 cup of white wine, turn on the heat and let it evaporate

Now, add the potatoes, adjust with salt (if necessary)

and add in the chicken broth

Cover with a lid and let simmer for about 30 min, or until it’s all well cooked

at this point take off the lid and let all the remaining liquid evaporate. Your chicken with potatoes is ready!
