Chicken Stew

Chicken Stew

There is nothing better than tucking into a great big bowl of stew. The nights are getting shorter and colder. It is time to get out those heavy Dutch ovens and start braising. 

Cider Braised Chicken


I have carried this recipe around with me for years, and I find myself making it three to four times a month. Cider is in my roots—it is one of the best products in County Tipperary, where I am from. The chicken just soaks up the cider vinegar, and to me, this dish is the perfect blend of tart, savory sour. PS: I’m a thigh man! Not only are thighs less expensive than chicken breasts, due to their fat content they are much harder to overcook.
