INGREDIENTS

Chicken:

  • 8 chicken thighs, bone in, skin on
  • Olive oil
  • 6 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 2 limes
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup carrots, chopped
  • 1 bunch cilantro, stems removed, chopped; more for garnish

 

Spice Mix:

  • 1 tbsp seasoned salt

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  2.  In a small bowl, mix the ingredients for the spice mix. Pat the chicken thighs dry, and season each thigh on both sides with the spice mix. Be sure to season underneath the skin as well. Let the chicken thighs sit in room temperature for about 15 minutes. 
  3. When ready, heat 1-2 tbsp of olive oil in a Swiss Diamond Shallow Casserole. Brown the chicken thighs deeply on both sides in the heated oil. Remove from the casserole and set aside briefly.
  4. Lower the heat and deglaze the casserole with the white wine. Let cook to reduce and then add the broth.
  5. Bring the liquid to a simmer then add lime juice and garlic
  6. Now return the chicken to the casserole; and toss in carrots and cilantro.
  7. Bring to a high-simmer for about 5 minutes or so.
  8. Cover the casserole and transfer to the 375 degree F-heated oven for 45 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  9. Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with more cilantro, if you like.
