making dinner with leftover white wine


i had some leftover white wine in my fridge that i didn’t feel like drinking, so my options were to either make risotto that required a moderate amount of effort, or make chicken with a white wine sauce, that required no effort at all. 

guess which weeknight dinner option i decided to go with?

ingredients: garlic, white wine, chicken, olive oil, fresh thyme, sea-salt, and black pepper. 

season the chicken with salt and pepper, and peel the garlic (i used about two and a half bulbs). heat up some olive oil in a pan and brown the chicken (a few minutes each side on high heat). remove the chicken from the pan, and place the garlic in there with more olive oil. once the garlic pieces are a golden-brown colour, add the wine and rhyme in there, and bring to a boil. add the chicken pieces, reduce the heat, cover the pan, and let the chicken cook. once the chicken is cooked, remove from the pan and serve over rice.
