(Last week we announced that we would be awarding nineteen Honorable Mentions in our Braising Contest. All of these entrants will be receiving an Apartment Therapy T-Shirt. Over the next week or so we will now try to methodically and swiftly present them all to you with all the winning photos and recipes. Another cold week here in NYC: braise on!)
Most Delicious Looking Finished Shot
We loved the look of this simple dish. Caitlin says: I used your contest and a hard work week as an excuse to try a new recipe I found on epicurious.com. The Braised Chicken with Shallots, Garlic and Balsamic Vinegar turned out fabulously. The ingredient list was short but I did replace the water with wine and stock. From start to finish the dish took about an hour and a half, my stove is the type that is either really hot or barely on, so cooking the bacon took quite a while. It was worth it though.
I served it as suggested, over some mashed potatoes in a pasta bowl. I also served some plain ole' steamed broccoli. It is certainly a meal I will cook again after grilling season is over.
