Braised Chicken Quarters w/ Gremolata
Winter is the perfect time to switch up the menu and make some braised dishes. Braising is simply cooking food that is partially submerged in a flavorful liquid. Vegetables and aromatics are added to the liquid, so that it’s much like a stock. We finish this dish with a nice big bunch of fresh herbs called a gremolata. Gremolata is a classic Italian accompaniment that can be used for a variety of dishes. The mixture of parsley, garlic, lemon zest and pine nuts adds a unique flavor that you’ll love! You can cook this on the stovetop, or if you wish, in the oven. I give it about an hour at barely a simmer. Serve it with a nice green vegetable and a big scoop of mashed potatoes!
