Red Wine Braised Chicken

This recipe is very special because it brings out childhood memories and triggers that warm feeling fuzzy feeling. Often growing up my mom cooked this fantastic meal.  Tonight I was delighted to make it for my husband since I do enjoy any opportunities to share a part of my Russian heritage. Easy to prepare, this Braised Chicken is a sure way to satisfy even the pickiest eater.  It’s a breeze to prepare and the best part?  It’s light on the budget.


I think many of us have a few dishes that we remember eating as children. Those dishes that remind us of special moments in our lives that can we long to recapture.
