Chicken Legs braised with slow-cooked red cabbage


Why not try this fuss-free, one-pot braised chicken legs with red cabbage recipe suggestion for dinner soon. Slow cooking allows the flavours to develop, and the best part is, throwing all the ingredients in and leaving it to cook on its own.
You may even find a few minutes to sit down and read some of your favourite book ... while enjoying the aroma from the kitchen!
My current read is a book by Kate Furnivall ... have you a current good read?

Ingredients:
Serves Four
1 tbsp. olive oil
1kg (2lb 4oz) chicken legs
1 large onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, sliced
1 red cabbage, sliced
3 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp. soft dark brown sugar
1 star anise
1 orange, zest and juice
250ml (8fl oz.) red wine
300ml (10fl oz.) chicken stock
To Serve:
1 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley
Cauliflower (or swede) mashed with butter

Method:
1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C.
2. Heat the oil in a large casserole dish. Brown the chicken legs for 5 minutes on each side, then set aside on a plate.
3. Add the onion and garlic, cover with a lid and cook gently for 10 minutes until soft. Stir through the cabbage, balsamic vinegar, sugar and star anise and cook for a further 5 minutes.
4. Pour over the orange juice and zest, wine and stock and bring to the boil. Cover with a lid and transfer to the oven to cook for 1 hour 30 minutes.
5. Reduce the oven temperature to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Remove the lid, nestle the chicken legs into the cabbage slightly and cook uncovered for 30 minutes until the chicken is golden and cooked through.
6. Scatter with the parsley and serve with your choice of mash, drizzled with cooking juices.

From an original idea here

You will find a variety of articles and recipes within this blog, not all may be suitable for you. If you may have any food allergies, or underlying health issues these must always be taken into account. If you are a diabetic and not sure how certain foods may affect your blood sugars, test is best, i.e. use your meter.

All the best Jan

Sounds great! I've got fish in a creamy herb sauce in the oven, and am enjoying a nice murder mystery! Hugs, Valerie

Lovely. It's a long time since I've had red cabbage. I've started my Christmas reading, I've got a lot of seasonal books to get through.

Now THIS is a recipe I can get behind. Looks fantastic!

Sounds yummy... especially with the addition of star anise.

The novel and anthology I've been reading are going on the back burner for a little bit while I read a book I just bought today. It's a cookbook. (Right up your alley!) The recipes are specifically for use with an air fryer. I don't have one, but I'm thinking very hard about buying one, so maybe checking out these recipes will help me make up my mind. Do you have any experiences with an air fryer? The idea of foods that taste like deep-fried, but without the use of any oil almost sounds too good to be true. :)

That looks good!

One pot wonders are great aren't they? And the leftovers are often pretty good too.

Hi Susan, I don't have any experience of an air fryer but looking around the inter-net many seem to use them. I did spot this 'Low Carb Air-Fryer Recipes' http://lowcarbairfryer.blogspot.co.uk/
You may like to have a look...

If you do get one please share your experience ...
Many thanks

All the best Jan

looks delicious - sounds good too.

I haven't cooked red cabbage for a while, so this seems like the kind of push I need to do it. I forget the exact recipe but I know it involved bacon fat and apples.

Rather like red cabbage use it in coleslaw sometimes with green.
The dish looks lovely.
