Braised chicken recipe

My mom’s braised chicken

My mother is over for a few days to spend some time with her grandsons and she is cooking some of hers most popular dishes. My youngest nephew particularly loves this one.

Use a pot where the chicken pieces fit in a single layer to get a good gravy.

Ingredients

  • One chicken cut in pieces
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 bay leave
  • 1/4 cup brandy
  • Olive oil
  1. Brown the chicken in medium heat.
  2. Add onions and garlic keep cooking until brown.
  3. Add brandy and cranck up the heat until alcohol evaporates and the vigourous boiling ends and becomes a frying matter.
  4. Add water but do not cover chicken completely, turn down the heat and add salt. Cover and cook for 20 minutes.
  5. Turn the chicken pieces and cook for another 15 minutes.
  6. Serve. It goes well with a green vinegary salad.
