4 pounds assorted bone-in, skin off chicken breasts and thighs
2 pounds mushrooms (cremini, white, or baby bella), cleaned of any dirt or particles
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
5 carrots, peeled and roughly chopped (could use baby carrots)
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 bay leaf
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Step 1: Season both sides of chicken generously with salt and pepper.
Step 2: Heat olive oil in a large cast-iron skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat and, in batches, brown chicken on all sides, then transfer to a separate plate and set aside.
Step 3: Reserving 2-3 tablespoons, drain off fat and saute carrots and onions until tender. About 10 minutes.
Step 4: Add mushrooms and cook for another 6-8 minutes, or until softened, then add crushed garlic and saute for 2 minutes.
Step 5: Season everything with salt and pepper, then transfer vegetables (discarding garlic) to the plate with the chicken.
Step 6: Sprinkle flour into the Dutch oven and cook for 1-2 minutes, whisking continuously, until pasty and smooth.
Step 7: Pour in the vinegars and whisk until smooth. Cook mixture for 3-5 minutes, or until thickened and reduced, then slowly mix in chicken broth.
Step 8: Return chicken to pot and add bay leaf, then bring mixture to a boil.
Step 9: Reduce heat to low, partially cover your pot and let simmer for 35-40 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
Step 10: Return vegetables to Dutch oven and serve with reduced sauce.
