Chicken Ragout

Bringing back one of my favorite family dinner recipes from 2013.  Pan fried chicken pieces simmered in flavorful red sauce with browned cubed potatoes.  Serve with a loaf of crusty bread and salad then you are good to go!

Hope you enjoy this tasty blast from the past, I call it our Sunday dinner perfection! 🙂

Chicken Ragout Dinner

After you brown your chicken pieces, brown your cubed potatoes with onion and garlic.

Nestle your chicken pieces right in the sauce and potatoes and bake partially covered for about an hour.

I like to serve this dinner right in the pan.  This chicken is great served with spoonfuls of sauce or on top of cooked pasta.

    Two questions – what temperature do we cook this recipe at? And what does “bake partially covered” mean?

      I cooked it at 350 for 50 minutes and mine was done. Partially covered just means don’t cover it all the way… I put a loose piece of tin foil over mine that was just smaller than the round pot, so the 4 corners left an opening. I’m not sure if that’s the best way, but it worked! 🙂
