- 1 tablespoon butter
- 4 bone-in chicken thighs (1-1/2 pounds)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/3 cup dry red wine
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
- In a large skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Brown chicken on both sides; season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium; cook, covered, 10-12 minutes or until a thermometer reads 170°-175°. Remove chicken to a serving plate; keep warm.
- Pour drippings from pan (do not wipe skillet clean); add wine and garlic. Bring to a boil, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan; cook 1-2 minutes or until wine is reduced by half. Stir in cream and rosemary. Return to a boil; cook 1-2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Serve with chicken. Yield: 4 servings.

Reviews for Chicken with Red Wine Cream Sauce
"Family did not rate this very high. Probably would just use stock instead of wine."
"This meal was quick, easy, and very tasty. I am not fond of soft chicken skin, although my husband devours it, so it probably won't reappear on our table without some modification."
