This Chicken, Zucchini & Portobello Mushrooms in a Chianti Red Wine Sauce was delicious and by using chicken thighs, it was also extremely moist. Literally. Fall off of the bone moist!

Chicken, Zucchini & Portobello Mushrooms in Chianti Red Wine Sauce

Simply brown the chicken in your Dutch oven on both sides, add crushed tomatoes, Chianti or any other dry red wine, fresh basil, garlic, zucchini and Portobello mushrooms. Pop it in the oven and bake for about 90 minutes and dinner is served.  You could also cook this in a slow cooker on low for 4-6 hours if you don’t have a Dutch oven, but I prefer this method better. ~Enjoy!

      Thanks Terri but for this recipe you would have to use the tomatoes as that is the base for the entire dish. Stay tuned next week though because I just made some Chicken Balsamico using chicken thighs and there are no tomatoes in that dish.
