Robbie’s Inspiration – Recipes from around the world: Braised chicken in white wine

I prefer the skin on chicken pieces in casseroles to be crispy which is why I like this dish.


2 peppers ( I used 1 yellow and 1 red) reseeded and chopped

16 pieces of chicken with skin

2 medium onions peeled and chopped

1 Tablespoon dried rosemary

Salt and pepper to taste

100 grams black olives de-pipped and halved

250 ml white wine

400 ml chicken stock

Olive oils for cooking


Heat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.

Salt and pepper the chicken pieces to taste. In a pot on the stove, heat the oil and braise the chicken, 8 pieces at a time. Remove the chicken from the pot and fry the onions and the peppers for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and rosemary and sauté for another few minutes. Spoon the onion mixture into the bottom of a casserole dish and layer the chicken on top, skin up. Add the olives and pour over the wine and then the chicken stock. The top of the chicken pieces should be above the liquid. Cook with the lid on for 45 minutes. Remove the lid and cook for a further 15 minutes.

Serve with rice.

We had a huge storm today. I do love rain but not necessarily the entire seasons on the same day.

This is my last recipe for this year. Enjoy!

    1. Hi Pete, it is rather unusual. I’ve only experienced hail like this one other time in my adult life and it wasn’t as bad. We have three broken windows, damage to the solar geyser and security cameras and the garden is in shreds. I actually prefer cooking chicken with the skin as it adds to the flavour of the dish. I rarely eat the skin though.

  1. This sounds delicious, Robbie. I like rosemary a lot. It’s great that you have such a sense of culinary adventure (as I call it).
    Those heavy rains can be problematic and downright scary. We’ve actually gotten a little rain over the weekend and maybe some more this afternoon. It’s an unexpected treat here. But those downpours like yours can have water all the way to my front porch (from the street). Worrisome.

    1. HI Gwen, we’ve been getting so much rain which is nice, but the hail wasn’t very nice and my garden is a wreck. It will come back but there is damage. Three windows broken, damage to the solar geysers, and the security cameras are damaged.


    1. HI Wayne, we do get very heavy rain, it was the hail that destroyed the garden and broke three windows. I’ve only experienced hail like this in our area (fairly hail and frost free) once before. My garden is a wreck. My baby hadeha has reappeared and is okay. My woodpeckers are MIA.
