Braised Chicken with White Wine and Tomatoes, or Pollo in Potacchio, is a delicious Italian dish prepared with a few simple ingredients. 

Category: Chicken, Main Course
Style: Italian
Quantity: 4 serves
Author: sbaskitchen
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 chicken thigh fillets
  • 4 chicken drumsticks
  • 4 cloves of garlic finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh oregano leaves
  • 2 tsp finely chopped rosemary plus 2 sprigs of rosemary
  • 125 ml white wine
  • 400 g of good quality tinned tomatoes
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to season
  1. Preheat your oven to 200˚C.
  2. Heat the olive oil in an ovenproof pan over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the chicken and cook for 5 minutes each side, until golden, then add the garlic, oregano and finely chopped rosemary, and cook for another 2 minutes.

  4. Pour in the white wine and cook for 2-3 minutes until slightly reduced, then add the tomatoes and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Tuck the two sprigs of rosemary in amongst the chicken, cover the pan with a lid and place in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove the lid and continue to cook the chicken for a further 10 minutes.

  6. Serve hot with crispy roasted potatoes with rosemary.
  • I used a jar of home preserved cherry tomatoes in tomato puree from the larder.
  • You can use chicken marylands, chicken thigh fillets, chicken thighs and/or drumsticks with skin on or off, as you choose.
