When you think of braising, do you imagine wintery roasts and stews that bubble for ages? Well, guess what — this simple technique doesn’t have to be an endless affair. Really! Braising can be the perfect way to get a quick dinner on the table while showcasing the best flavors of spring.
Sarah’s Tip of the Day:
In this recipe, you’ll begin by simmering chicken thighs with garlic, white wine and thyme. After 30 minutes, top each piece with a lemon slice and allow the chicken to cook through before transferring it to a serving platter. Then you’ll reduce any leftover cooking liquid along with a tablespoon of butter, chopped parsley, and lemon juice for an extra shot of flavor. Pour your sauce over the chicken before serving. Voila! A beautiful and bright dinner for spring.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
8 bone-in skinless chicken thighs (about 2 3/4 pounds)
Coarse salt and ground pepper
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 cup dry white wine
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 lemon, cut into 8 thin slices, plus 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon cold butter, cut into pieces
2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
Cooked rice, for serving (optional)
In a 12-inch skillet with a tight-fitting lid, arrange thighs, bone side up; season with salt and pepper. Add garlic, wine, and thyme. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook, 30 minutes.
Turn chicken over. Place a lemon slice on each piece; cover and continue simmering until tender, about 15 minutes. Leaving garlic and liquid in skillet, transfer chicken and lemon slices to a platter. Cover tightly with foil to keep warm.
Bring liquid in skillet to a boil; cook until reduced to 1/2 cup, about 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat. Add butter, parsley, and lemon juice; stir until butter has softened and sauce is smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Serve chicken with sauce and, if desired, rice.

New Ideas For Those Who Love To Cook
Cooking is a necessity of life, but it can become a hobby as well. We can all learn how to enjoy cooking if we know some of the good advice that makes it a pleasure and not a chore. You are sure to find some of that quality advice in the article that follows.
Save yourself some time and stress by doing prep work a day ahead. The wise cook prepares as much as possible before starting to cook. Cooking can get stressful when you’re working to deadline. Do your prep work in advance, if you can.
Always keep your spices away from light in a cool place. When they are stored in the sun, they lose shelf life because of exposure. Spices stored in a cool, dark location will taste better and last longer. These fresh spices will help add flavor to your meals, making them tastier!
Add oil to the pan’s sides when cooking. Adding oil in this way allows the oil to heat before it reaches the food in the center of the pan. This will enhance the flavors of the food when you’re done cooking.
If you are seasoning some meats, you should try a small piece of it before you cook all of it. Meats like meatballs, hamburgers or meatloaf can be easily under or over seasoned. After seasoning the meat, do not cook all of it. You should make a small patty first. After that, you may choose to cook everything or adjust your seasoning accordingly.
Cooking isn’t just being able to serve food. It is also a fun new thing to try. As you practice cooking, you’ll produce some meals that don’t live up to your expectations, but this will happen less frequently if you make use of this article’s advice. Use the aforementioned cooking tips in your own kitchen, and you will be on your way to culinary excellence.
