Braised Chicken Thighs with Veggies – Koren Grievson



  1. Slice the chicken into ½ inch strips or leave whole – your preference.
  2. In a saucepot, add the cooking oil – once it starts to smoke, add the chicken and cook until browned.  Flip the meat and sear for another five minutes. Remove the chicken and drain the oil, then add the vegetables to the pot, scraping up all the bits from the bottom of the pan.
  3. Once the veggies start to sweat, add the canned tomato and chicken stock. Bring to a boil and turn down to a simmer, then return chicken to the pot. Check seasoning, add the fresh lemon juice if using at this point.
  4. Simmer until the chicken thighs are tender, approximately 30 to 40 minutes. The reduced liquid should be somewhat thick due to the potato. Serve with rice and fresh herbs.
