Chicken Osso Buco

Submitted by: ALLISONO

Introduction

Lite and healthy version of Veal Osso Buco Lite and healthy version of Veal Osso Buco
Number of Servings: 3

Ingredients

    6 boneless chicken thighs
    2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    1 cup celery, chopped
    2 carrots, chopped
    1/2 cup onion, chopped
    1 cup mushrooms, chopped
    2 Tbsp shallots, chopped
    3 cloves garlic, chopped
    3 oz. red wine
    1 cup homemade chicken STOCK or storebought STOCK, NOT Broth (broth is much saltier)
    8 oz. can no-salt tomato sauce
    12 to 14 oz diced tomatoes, no salt added (liquid too!)
    3 full-length sprigs fresh rosemary
    1 tsp. fresh thyme, chopped
    1/2 bay leaf
    1 tsp. lemon zest (peel)
    dash of dried red pepper flakes
    1 squeeze of anchovy paste (about an inch)
    2 dashes kosher salt
    1 dash black pepper
    1 Tbsp flour
    1 pat unsalted butter
    (For convenience, I sometimes use storebought frozen stew vegetables instead of chopping up fresh - but don't put bagged potatoes in until the last 45 minutes, because they'll get mushy.)

Directions

Saute chicken thighs in 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil in a large skillet -- remove, and set aside.

Add 1 Tbsp olive oil, heat, and add celery, carrots, onions, and mushrooms - saute until carmelized.

Add shallots and garlic, cook for 2 minutes.

Add red wine, scrape up bits of meat from bottom.

Add remaining ingredients and return chicken to skillet.

Bring to a boil, lower heat, and simmer covered (with lid cracked a bit) for 1 to 2 hours (until chicken is tender and falling apart).

Delicious served over brown rice with garden salad on the side.

Number of Servings: 3

    Despite the long list of ingredients, this was quick to prepare and cooked in 75 min. I used 11 thighs for 4 people. Do not increase the sauce, there is already more than enough to serve with rice(I used), or pasta. I thickened it in the final minutes with a small slurry of cornstarch and water. - 2/3/09

    Yummy! I served this to my family and my grown son, daughter, & husband all loved it. I didn't have any red wine so I used white zinfandel, and I increased the veggies because I only had 4 thighs so I added 2 breasts. Couldn't figure out what the pat of butter was for so I left that out. A Keeper!!! - 4/21/09

    This was excellent. Very fresh, great for leftovers. Sauce was perfect for serving over rice with a bang up job for flavor. Will definately make it again and a great option for freezing leftovers . - 8/10/08

  • WOW This is hands down the best recipe I have ever made from this site. Didn't add the red pepper because we are not fans of spicey food and we didn't have the anchovy paste but again WOW - 3/3/12

  • This was fantastic! We used breasts (3) instead of thighs. 1/2 low sodium vegetable broth and 1/2 low sodium chicken broth (veg is lower yet in sodium) and sprinkled parmesan on top. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe. Much appreciated! - 8/30/09
