Recipe For Chipotle Braised Chicken 2010-09-17 14:16:31

Ingredients

  1. 1 large onion, halved lengthwise, then thinly sliced lengthwise
  2. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  3. 1 Turkish or 1/2 California bay leaf
  4. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  5. 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  6. 3 lb chicken parts
  7. 1 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
  8. 1 cup water
  9. 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  10. 1/4 cup chopped cilantro

Directions

  1. Cook onion, garlic, and bay leaf in butter and 1/2 Tbsp oil with 1/8 tsp salt in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until onion is beginning to brown, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Pat chicken dry and season with 1 tsp salt. Brown chicken in remaining Tbsp oil in 2 batches, 5 to 6 minutes per batch, transferring to a plate as browned.
  3. Discard all but 2 Tbsp fat from skillet, then stir in chile powder and onion mixture and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Stir in water and bring to a simmer, scraping up brown bits.
  4. Add chicken and cook, covered, over low heat, turning chicken once, until just cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes. Transfer chicken and onions with a slotted spoon to a platter. Skim off and discard fat from sauce, then boil until slightly thickened. Stir in lime juice and cilantro and spoon sauce over chicken.
