A set it and forget it kind of meal, this Balsamic Braised Chicken takes only a few minutes to prep and then slow cooks itself to a delicious, family friendly meal.
Finally, Spring seems to be on the horizon. The weather is still a little hit-or-miss, but overall the Winter bite seems to be less present in the air and the first buds of Spring are starting to poke through the ground. I love the change of the seasons, no matter what time of year. At the end of Summer, I’m usually ready for Autumn, and always at the end of Winter I’m ready to get Spring started. One thing I will miss, though, are those low and slow cooked dinners that have made themselves a part of our cold, Winter Sunday afternoons. The type of meals that warm up the house with their aromas and bring comfort and coziness.
I made this Balsamic Braised Chicken a couple weekends ago. I woke up feeling like I wanted to have a lazy Sunday, with a hearty, comforting meal at the end of the day, but I also wanted that meal to require minimal work because, again, I wanted to be lazy. With a little white wine left in my fridge from the night before and some chicken pieces picked up at the market, this meal was prepped and in the oven in minutes, freeing up the rest of the afternoon.
