Red Wine Chicken Stew

Red Wine Chicken Stew

If you have red wine available, you can make this easy, speedy recipe with ingredients you have on hand.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Chicken (I used breast meat)
150 g
Mushrooms (optional)
about 1/2 pack, combined
Olive oil
as needed
Red wine
1 cup
2 tablespoons
1 teaspoon
Soy sauce
1 teaspoon
(As desired) Japanese Worcestershire sauce
1 scant teaspoon
Salt and pepper
to taste


1. Cut the chicken into large bite-sized pieces and flavor with salt and pepper. Slice the onions and break up the mushrooms.
2. Heat some olive oil in a pot and cook the onions. Once they've wilted, add the chicken and cook until both sides brown.
3. Add the red wine, ketchup, sauce, and sugar, and bring to a gentle simmer. Add the mushrooms and continue to simmer. Simmer until the sauce reduces by half.
4. Adjust the flavor with soy sauce, salt, and pepper. Transfer to a serving plate and it's ready.

Story Behind this Recipe

You can have this done in time for dinner even if you don't start cooking until your husband comes home. I was happy to come up with a simple and basic western-style dish. No need to go buy a can of demi-glace sauce, the sauce thickens nicely on its own while simmering.
