Recipe submitted by DaVita dietitian Lisa B. from New York.

Portions: 8     Serving size: 1 chicken thigh


  •  8 chicken thighs, bone in, with skin
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose white flour
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled, cut in half
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash® seasoning blend, any flavor


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium flame on stove.
  2. Measure out flour and place in a dish. If you like, you may add any of the Mrs. Dash® seasoning blends to the flour, or just the black pepper.
  3. Dredge the chicken in the flour and place in the hot oil. Cook until lightly browned.
  4. In the same pan, add garlic and white wine.
  5. Cover and cook on low heat approximately 20 minutes, making sure that when a knife is inserted, juice runs clear, not red. Check the chicken periodically and add additional wine if pan is dry.
  6. Serve chicken topped with wine sauce.

Helpful hints

  • After chicken is floured if you let it stand for 15 to 20 minutes the flour will adhere to chicken pieces better.
  • You can add thin-cut low-potassium vegetables to the oil in the beginning as desired.  Try shredded carrots or julienne zucchini.
  • Refrigerate or freeze individual portions of leftover chicken and reheat for a quick meal later.
  • Mrs. Dash® seasoning blends are available in a variety of flavors and are very low sodium, potassium and phosphorus.

looking forward into trying. Do you have any recipe for pulled pork slow cooker. The Pulled Pork recipe we have does not call for a slow cooker but you can use one. Or you could use the Pulled Chicken recipe prepared in a slow cooker and substitute the pork for chicken.

I'M not familiar with Mrs Dash seasoning in AUSTRALIA. sOUNDS INTERESTING WILL TRY NEXT TIME I GET CHICKEN. SKIN ON OR OFF? Dietitian comment: Mrs. Dash is a salt-free herb ans spice seasoning. It comes in many different flavor combinations. We left the skin on the chicken in this dish, but it would work without the skin if you prefer.

Have not tried it yet. What will be the changes if I use breast meat instead. Dietitian comment: The fat content is lower. Ounce for ounce the other nutrients are about the same.

Tastes great, very flavorful! I used oregano, basil, and a little bit of ginger as the spice mix for the flour dredge.

i added some paprika and garlic powder to the flour before dredging chicken husband who is not a chicken lover enjoyed this dish very much. Also, after browning; I put the covered casserole in a 350 oven for 30 minutes or until chicken was cooked. Served with potatoes that had been soaked and then roasted in oven with carrots and onions

Absolutely loved this recipe. Substituted flour with panko bread crumbs though. It was even better the next day. Goes well with the Savory Green Bean recipe.

I tried this recipe and love it oh my mother liked it also. The only thing I will do next time is not to use flour, when you add wine it gets soggy, nice flavor and sauce.

How much chicken, 8 pieces? Can boneless be used? Moderator: I have corrected the recipe to include 8 chicken thighs, bone-in, with skin. You could use boneless thighs but it will not be as tasty.
