One Pot Red Wine Chicken

I love one pot meals. They are easy to prepare, easy to clean up, and require very little attention once you start cooking them. I came up with this red wine chicken a few years ago in an effort to make healthy and inexpensive meals.

Red Wine Chicken-3

I cook this ever so often. I love the flavors the wine adds to the chicken, the vegetables make a delicious side. I give this recipe to friends who don’t know how to cook or who need to cook on a budget because it really is that easy and inexpensive to make. Just pick a cheap bottle of red wine (I go for the $3 bottle they have at a lot of stores) and you can keep this meal  for 4 to 6 under $10.
