Chicken Vermouth

Posted on by

Chicken is such a popular, versatile main dish that recipes abound from around the world.  One of our favorite recipes is Chicken Vermouth, a mouth-watering dish that is extremely easy to make. The recipe below calls for the chicken to be served with homemade mashed potatoes. We thicken the Vermouth gravy and spoon over both the chicken and mashed potatoes.  My daughters have used this recipe for their families and found that even their pickiest eaters ask for seconds.

Chicken Vermouth

 1 small yellow onion, chopped

4 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless

2 tbs. butter

½ tsp salt

½ tsp. pepper

1 diced tomato

½ cup Cooking Vermouth

¼-cup water

1 tbs. cornstarch

4 medium sized potatoes, pared, cubed

2 tbs. butter

1. Spray bottom of large skillet with cooking spray. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter and the chopped onion. Sauté over medium heat until onion starts to turn golden.

2. Add the chicken breasts to the skillet and cook thoroughly over medium heat . Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

3. While chicken is cooking,  boil potatoes in a large pot until tender. Drain. Add butter and mash or whip with mixer.

4. Once chicken is cooked completely, remove from skillet to a  platter.  Add the remaining tablespoon of butter to the onions in the skillet. Add diced tomatoes, cooking over medium heat for five minutes.

5. Slowly add the Cooking Vermouth to the onion- tomato mixture. Cover with a lid and let it simmer for five minutes. Return the chicken to the skillet , cover and let simmer for another five minutes so the Vermouth flavor can be absorbed.

6. Place chicken on platter. Add water and cornstarch to the Vermouth gravy, stirring until smooth. Once the gravy has thickened, it is ready to be served over the chicken and mashed potatoes.
