Yield:
10 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken breast tenderloins
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 shallots, chopped
  • 6 sprigs fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 2 cups beef broth (yes, beef broth)
Directions

Heat a large, deep skillet over medium high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Add 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, half the chicken pieces, and a couple of crushed cloves of garlic.

Brown chicken 2 minutes on each side and remove from pan. Add remaining oil, another single turn of the pan, remaining chicken pieces and garlic. Brown chicken 2 minutes on each side and remove. Add vinegar to the pan. Let it cook off.

Add butter, shallots, and rosemary to the pan and cook 2 minutes, add flour and cook 1 minute more. Whisk in wine, reduce 1 minute. Whisk in broth and bring liquids up to a bubble. Return chicken to the pan and simmer over moderate heat 7 to 8 minutes to finish cooking chicken through.

Dessert: This is a very rich meal. My suggestion for dessert is to set out a small cookie tray and offer coffee or tea.

Excellent! Cut this in half to feed my very picky teenage son. He loved it! He said the sauce was tasty! I used only Chicken tenderloins because that is what I had, and used only chicken broth, I did not use the white wine or beef broth. I did not have any on hand. Served it over mashed potatoes and he was happy! I can't wait to try it again would love to add mushrooms. It's a keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy to make and delicious. Great dish for entertaining. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this tonight for dinner and served over rice that I cooked with chicken stock and shallot, and my fiance and I both thought it was delicious! I loved the rosemary flavor, and did not think it was bland at all!!! I did follow the recipe but adjusted the amounts because I only used about two lbs of chicken thighs. Next time I will probably do 1lb chicken thighs and 1lb breast tenders just to have both white and dark meat. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for my husband this evening for dinner. We were very pleased with this dish. I had to use dry vermouth, and apple cider vinegar instead of white wine vinegar, which gave it a whimsical flavor. Next time I will have the correct ingredients and I can't wait to see how it will taste then. I did use it with a garlic herb rice which was really good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good! I served it with roasted potatoes, but I think it would be great with a grain, maybe some wild rice. We'll definitely have this again item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a fantastic weeknight dish. It comes together really fast and is super yummy. I have found that we like it best over mased potatoes but goes nice over pasta too. I use all boneless ckinless chicken breast that I cut up. I also use dried rosemary and a small onion because I don't always have everything on hand. I always have onios, dried rosemary, and garlic in the house so it is great for last minute. Nothing fancy but has pretty good taste for such a quick meal that can be made last minute. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yummy! My husband said this recipe was a keeper. It was pretty easy to make and I really liked the gravy. I just used a pkg of three chicken breasts. Worked great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very nice. Goes great atop a grain like rice or even farro. Added a pinch of smoked paprika and a bit of fresh lime. Next time I may try a touch of fresh orange juice. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thought this was good. It wasn't a knock your socks off dish. But, it was quick and easy in a pinch with a bit of a gourmet flare! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this tonight after reading the reviews and was a little concerned. I followed the recipe with minor changes: used chicken tenderloins and as some other reviewers mentioned, I cut back the beef stock to one cup instead of two. I also added two tablespoons of capers as a few had mentioned that it was bland. Served it with whole wheat rotini Pasta. Family all agreed it was great. As usual Rachael is fantastic. When asked what style of cooking I usually favor, Cuban, Italian, etc., my son chimed in, "My Mom cooks Rachael Ray!" item not reviewed by moderator and published

Simply deliscious and satisfying!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
GROSS! Not a good flavor at all. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm in love with this dish. I did do all white meat though, only 3 pounds instead of the 3 1/2. I found there was more sauce that way, plus I served it over a bed of wide egg noodles with a side of sauteed fresh string beans. The whole crowd I cooked it for thought it was great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved it. I took out the rosemary and the wine and added mushrooms. It is a great and simple dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
this looks much nicer in the picture than it came out. i agree the sauce was thin after adding the beef broth. also i couldn't figure out why people thought this was very rich. i didn't think so at all. the sauce had a nice flavor but nothing so great that i would think of making this again. sorry rach item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this according to the recipe with the one exception of adding mushrooms, and my family thought it was just ok. My husband said it was "forgettable". item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish was superb. My picky fiancee (food snob extraordinaire)'s first words after taking a bite was "Wow, what is this? Whatever it is, bookmark it. it's the best chicken dish you've ever made" Made a few slight changes to the recipe, but other than that, followed it to a T 1) Used only breast tenderloins (no thighs) 2) Red wine vinegar instead of white wine vinegar 3) Added mushrooms towards the end (after cooking the shallots/etc., and right before adding the chicken back the 2nd time) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Me and my friend really enjoyed this dish...esp the sauce. served it with some salad and italian bread, which was great to eat with the sauce. I think next time i may add some mushrooms to the sauce and some pasta too.... item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is one of the dishes that keeps me looking for the gems on this website... It's an easy dish to prep and everyone I make it for loves it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Everyone I make this for loves it, it is always fabulous and a HUGE crowd pleaser, even for the most picky eaters. I usually serve it with large portions of garlic sauteed spinach and wild long grain rice, or some sort of pilaf. For children or those who are not a huge fan of rice... cheesey rice usually does the trick. Thank you Rachael!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
It's practically chilly outside tonight--even for the end of July in Chicago! My husband did all the stirring and with glasses of the rest of the white wine in hand we had a scrumptious candlelight repast. This is a winner any time of the year! item not reviewed by moderator and published

The recipe was quick and easy. The sauce was tasty, but mine ended up looking like a chicken stew from all of the extra broth and wine. I would definitely recommend cooking the wine and broth for much longer or just using less. The chicken thighs just weren't my favorite - but again the flavor of the sauce was nice. I might try it again and play around with it item not reviewed by moderator and published
Absolutly delish! I just made a few minor changes. 2 because I didn't write down the correct measurements since I was cutting it down from 3 lbs of chicken and it was a very good error and 2 other changes on purpose. First off, I only used boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I absolutely forgot that the vinegar was by tbs and did a cup of white wine vinegar and let it simmer on medium heat. Instead of just Rosemary, I used Herbs de Provence which made it so heavenly. I also used Cider Vinegar instead of white wine and that was 1/2 cup which I also let simmer down a bit. The end result, even with the errors, was a aromatic, juicy and husband happy result. I did with angel hair pasta but next time will do with a veggie mix. Definitely doing this again and will include the errors as my own way of doing RR's recipe. Thank you once again Rachel! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The chicken was very tender, however, the sauce was just alright. It had a sort-of bland flavor. It was rich because of the oil and butter but it tasted mostly like the beef stock. The beef stock overpowered the dish. I probably wouldn't make this again. I wrote the review because all the reviews were so positive and it is just not that great. I served this over pasta. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this dish so many times the recipe is embedded in my memory. I can't think of one person that I have made this for that did not love it. Even my picky 6 year old grandson can't get enough. Double or triple or halve it. Pair it with parsley noodles to "sop up" the sauce, or try it with garlic mashed Yukon taters. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I needed to feed a big group and this was the perfect way. I served this with pasta in a light white sauce and they ate every bite! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I enjoyed the Tuscan chicken. I served it pasta. I don't know maybe it was the beef stock but it was very rich. Not sure if I would make it again item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe! So versitile, I can tell I'll be playing with it in all different ways (chicken breast, pork?, red pepper flakes, cherry tomatoes, basil instead of rosemary, marsala wine instead?). I made it according to the directions and it was applauded by all (4 big eatting boys and a picky honey). I do agree with one review, oil on the floor and had to mop, but grabbed a deeper pot and kept going. Thanks for adding the (yes, beef broth), I thought it was a typo and even considered just passing it by because of it but it's Rachael Ray, trust her, you know it's going to be good! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Knowing in advance that if Rachael makes it in 30, then it'll take me 45-60. I don't get how some reviewers thought this was bland. If you season both sides of the meat like it says, and get each side nice and brown, and follow the recipe as written, you will not get a bland dish. This was delicious! I did have to leave the kitchen when I added the vinegar. I felt like I was choking on the vapors and my eyes started watering. LOL! But the sauce came together very well and it reduced and thickened as it should have. I just paired it with roasted carrots and I was good to go. Will definitely make again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
But I'm not sure about the beef stock...it gave it an odd taste. I might try again with less or do half chicken half beef. Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good taste, but WOW! What a mess! I stopped in the middle of cooking this to mop my floors. The oil that popped out of the skillet was everywhere, and I used the deep cast iron dutch oven, I also felt that the garlic was added far too early and that there was far too much oil. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this recipe. Great for a rainy day. Super easy. Def. use the beef broth! Husband approved with the comment "put it on the menu!!!" item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was so easy and fast. I used all white meat tenderloin out of my freezer section at the grocers. I'm not a fan of dark meat chicken. The frozen tenderloins once thawed are so easy and uniform to cook up and come in 3 pound bags. I served the dish with a simple couscous and Giada's Tuscan Salad recipe that has plenty of veggies and simple dressing. The rosemary, wine and beef stock were truly amazing flavors in this dish. Will definatley make this dish again and again. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I liked the fact that this recipe didn't call for any unusual ingredients. The only problem I had was while I was reducing the pan juices on low heat, I got splattered. Be careful!

I had to substitute lemon juice for the vinegar. I found that is was missing something but I'm not sure what. It didn't reduce and get thick like in the show. My chicken turned out to be a bit dry. The flavor was great - color perfect! Texture was perfect too. Served it with cous-cous and it was a great pairing. Light and fluffy to compliment the light flavors of the dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I had imagined this totally different from the name and knowing what I know about Tuscany. But what a surprise!!! My husband didnt want chicken but that is what I had defrosted so that is what he got! And he didn't complain!! The sauce is incredible (must be the beef broth) and I served it with mash potatoes as the sauce/gravy was so good it needed dual usage. Will definitely make again and it was easy. One note though, I did cook it longer than it said as I used thighs with bone instead of boneless and didn't think it would dry out sitting in that marvelous gravy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Good, easy recipe. Tastes great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was simple to make but very rich and tasty. Best served with uncomplicated light side dishes like noodles (for all the rich juices) and green beans. I substituted golden balsamic vinegar for the white wine vinegar. Came out Excellent! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have to say, I was not impressed. I was surprised and disappointed that for all of the ingredients, it really didn't have much flavor. It didn't taste bad or anything so I guess if you like bland food it would be good. My husband likes things a little more on the bland side but he even agreed that we wouldn't bother making this recipe again. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this to great reviews, the chicken turned out moist, it did take a little longer, I just cooked it over low heat so it wouldn't dry out. My Tuscan boyfriend really enjoyed it.

I loved this recipe. The taste was fantastic, and the ease of preparation was pretty darn good, especially for the results, but I almost lost all the skin on my hand when I put the vinegar in.

I made this last night for my husband and one of his friends and we all loved it. The chicken was extremely moist and flavorful. I was a little weary about using beef broth in a chicken dish but it gave it a wonderful flavor. I didn't use six sprigs of rosemary, I only used two. I served it over homemade roasted garlic mashed potatoes with parsley mixed in to them and put a salad on the side. I will definitely be making this one again. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This recipe is EXCELLENT and is one of my family's all time favorites! I prefer to make this dish with all chicken thighs rather than mixing the thighs and breast tenderloins. I find the chicken to be very tender and the sauce is heavenly! I substitute fresh thyme for the rosemary since this is my personal preference. Sometimes I add sauteed mushrooms to the sauce toward the end of the simmering process if I have them on hand. I usually make this early in the day, refrigerate it then bring it back to a simmer just before serving. It goes great with Garlic-Herb Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans, but hot cooked pasta pairs well with this chicken also. item not reviewed by moderator and published
