  • 1
    Heat oven to 350 degrees
  • 2
    3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    4 Chicken Thighs with Legs attached
    Salt and Pepper to taste
    Heat a large Dutch oven over medium high heat and add the olive oil. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and add to the hotpot. Sear the chicken until golden brown on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the pot and pour out a little of the excess fat.

    1 Red Onion (wedges)
    8 New Potatoes (halved)
    4 Cloves Garlic
    1/2 bulb Fennel (wedges)
    1 bunch Thyme (leaves only)
    1 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
    1 cup White Wine
    2 cups Water
    1 Bay Leaf 
    Add the onions, potatoes, and fennel. Michael tip: if you don't like fennel you can use celery.  Cook for another 2 minutes. Deglaze with the wine and add the chicken back to the pot. Add the garlic, thyme and chili flakes. Pour over the water and add the bay leaf and a couple more sprigs of thyme. Cover and place in the oven until the chicken is tender, about 30-45 minutes.  Michael tip: this is a quick braise but you can do the process with a brisket but it will take 3-4 hours.
