I tossed a half size of this recipe together last night. Easy, quick and wonderful flavors, this will definitely become a regular. I LOVE bone-in chicken thighs!

Rishia Zimmern’s Chicken With Shallots

"Here is a simple, excellent one-pot recipe for a midweek feast, full of rich flavor, with a sauce that you won't want to waste. It came to The Times via the Twitter account of Andrew Zimmern, who eats bugs on television as the host of “Bizarre Foods” on the Travel Channel but lives a sedate life back home in Minnesota when he’s not working, which is not often. His wife, Rishia Zimmern, adapted it from Martha Stewart, and he put it on the social network: “Brown 8 thighs, 3 C shallots. Add wine, tarragon, Dijon, sim 30 min covered. Remove lid, reduce. Add 2C cut cherry toms.” We’ve been messing around with that ever since, and thrill to its flavor. Lay in bread to accompany it, and sop up the sauce."

8 bone-in chicken thighs
2 Tbs flour
1 Tbs kosher salt
1 Tbs ground black pepper
2 Tbs unsalted butter
12 to 15 whole medium shallots, peeled
2 cups white wine
2 Tbs Dijon mustard
2 sprigs tarragon
2 cups cherry tomatoes, cut in half.

Rinse chicken thighs in water, and pat them very dry with paper towels. Sprinkle over them the flour, salt and pepper.

Melt the butter in a large, heavy-bottomed pot or skillet set over medium-high heat. When the butter foams, cook the chicken, in batches if necessary, until well browned and crisp on all sides. Set aside.

Add the whole shallots to the pot and sauté them in the butter and chicken fat until they begin to soften and caramelize, approximately 10 to 12 minutes. Add the wine to deglaze the pot, stir with a large spoon, then add the mustard and tarragon, then the chicken thighs. Cover the pot, turn the heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes.

Remove the lid, and allow the sauce to reduce and thicken, 15 to 20 minutes.

Add the cherry tomatoes to the pot, stir lightly to combine and serve immediately.

Yield: 4 to 6 servings.
