Chicken baked with white wine, garlic and herbs
Baked chicken thighs in a delicious white wine, butter and herb sauce is easy enough for weeknight meals and equally perfect for dinner parties.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
- 8 chicken thighs skin on and bone in
- olive oil/butter for frying
- 3 garlic cloves peeled and finely chopped
- 1 cup white wine
- large handful mixed fresh herbs chopped (I used sage, parsley, thyme and rosemary)
- ½ cup heavy/whipping cream
- salt & pepper to taste
Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/400°F.
In a large, oven-proof frying pan, melt the butter/heat the oil and fry the chicken until golden brown all over.
Remove from the pan then add the garlic and allow to fry for a few seconds then pour in the wine, herbs and cream.
Add the chicken back to the pan then season to taste and place in the oven.
Allow to bake for 15-20 minutes until cooked through but still juicy.
Serve with rice/bread to mop up the juices.
