Stewed Chicken with Fresh Peas in a White Wine Sauce

Stewed Chicken with Fresh Peas in a White Wine Sauce.  It’s Spring and in the world of food that means it is the season for fresh peas.  We buy pounds of fresh peas from our farmer’s market each Spring  that I laboriously  shuck and freeze.  This labor of love provides us peas for a year, and it is really worth it!  Once you buy and shuck your fresh peas, here is a great way to highlight them.  In this recipe peas are the superstar, their  creaminess combined with chicken braised in white wine, a delightful combination.  Preparation time and ingredients are minimal,

but you need time for the peas and chicken to braise slowly in wine and chicken broth, well worth the wait.  Stewed Chicken with Fresh Peas in a White Wine Sauce, Let’s Cook!

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs Boneless chicken breast or thighs
  • 1 Leek
  • 1 Scallion
  • 1 Carrot
  • 3 cups Fresh peas, shucked
  • 3 tbls Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups White wine, dry
  • 2 cups Chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup All purpose flour
  • handful Flat leaf Italian Parsley, finely chopped
  • Sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • Chicken seasoning spice mix, i.e. Montreal Chicken

Instructions

  1. Peel and finely dice the carrot

    Finely dice the scallion

    Cut the green leafy part off of the leak, slice in half lengthwise, rinse well to remove the sand trapped between the layers. Slice again in half lengthwise and cut into 1/4' slices.  

  2. Cut the chicken into bite sized chunks

  3. On a piece of parchment or foil, add the flour, season with seasoning spice mix.

    Dredge the chicken in the flour


  4. Heat the olive oil in a braising pan, when the oil is hot, add the chicken and lightly brown.

    Pour the wine into the pan, scraping under the chicken removing all the crusty brown bits, raise the heat for a minute to burn off the alcohol.

  5. Add leeks, scallion and carrot to the pan, stir

    Add peas to the braising pan.  Salt, pepper and chopped parsley.

  6. Pour the broth onto the mixture.  Lower the heat to a simmer and cook until the liquid reduces into a creamy sauce.  If at any time you need add more broth to elongate the sauce.  The sauce should be creamy, the peas cooked and the chicken soft.  Adjust salt and pepper

  7. Serve hot, with basmati rice
