French-Style Garlic Wine Chicken

Rachel C. of Grand Forks AFB, ND was selected as a finalist in the 2012 Just 5 Cooking Challenge for creating this simpler version of a French classic. The finished dish has delicate and flavorful garlic cloves that are delicious spread over warm French bread.

Prep Time 
Cook Time 
Total Time 


2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
5 to 8 (20 ounces) Just BARE® Hand-Trimmed Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1 head garlic, broken into cloves, peeled
1 can (14 ounces) low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves


Heat oil and butter in large deep skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, chicken about 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Tuck garlic cloves in among chicken pieces; pour in broth and wine. Sprinkle with thyme.

Reduce heat to medium-low, cover pan, and simmer 20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center.

Remove chicken from pan; keep warm. Increase heat to medium-high; cook liquid for 5 to 8 minutes or until slightly thickened.

Serve chicken with garlic and pan sauce.


Serve with buttery mashed potatoes or soft polenta in a shallow soup plate, with a baby kale salad dressed with a Dijon vinaigrette alongside.
