Gettin' fresh … in Northern Nevada

Red Wine Vinegar Chicken

I am a lucky girl.   The hubs was feeling extra culinary this week and has decided to share his recipe for red wine vinegar chicken.

The original recipe was posted on, but here’s how it’s done at our house:


    • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
    • 1 cup red wine vinegar
    • 1 cup chicken stock
    • 2 red ripe tomatoes
    • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley or 2 tablespoons thyme
    • 4 tablespoons butter
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Brown the seasoned chicken in batches in the butter with a bit of oil as well to stop it burning.
  2. Drain fat from skillet and return chicken to skillet.
  3. Slowly pour the vinegar into the hot pan to deglaze. Stand back from fumes!
  4. Over med-high heat, reduce the vinegar by about half, turning chicken periodically to bathe it.
  5. Add tomatoes and stock, cover and simmer gently until flavors melded and mingled, about 20 minutes.
  6. Remove the pan from heat, set aside the chicken and keep warm.
  7. In the pan, whisk in a pat of butter.
  8. Pour the sauce over the chicken and then sprinkle with herbs.
  9. Enjoy with pasta shells or your choice of sides.

And, some action photos to make this post extra interesting:   (I know it’s really just about the pictures.)
