Chef Spice: Get Yo' Man Chicken

*Added note* I was just browsing a friend's blog and she has just made her post about a recipe too and she is in the blog carnival called Tempt my Tummy Tuesdays, so I figure why not just join in. I wouldn't mind finding other great recipes this way too. So head over to Lisa's blog and join in on the food fun.

Blessed with Grace

Today was full. I had so many things to do while interacting with the children that at one point, I just wanted to stand in cold water and scream.

I giggled about it. Then giggled some more and the kids didn't understand so they started to laugh too lol.

At the end of the day I could greet the husband with a smile and didn't mind the kids missing nap and made a delicious dinner which every one ate, with praise in my direction.

I want to share the main dish with you. It is really really really good. You gotta try it and then let me know.

I was watching a show a couple months ago and there was this couple making a meal. Patrick and Gina Neely have their own cooking show I think, but I've not yet watched it. They were guests on this talk show and they made: Get Yo' Man Chicken."
I was so intrigued that I got the recipe and did it and have fallen in love with making chicken this way, and the husband loves it! Which is what I want, because every time I cook, I am actually cooking for him. I don't set out in my mind to just cook for him, but unconsciously, I feel that I'm cooking for 'him.'

So tonight I made 'Get Yo' Man Chicken' and rice (brown rice) and mash potatoes squished with butter and pepper and mayonnaise. It was delish!

No ice cream for me as I'm stuffed to the gills and I'm not sure if I want to giggle some more or fall asleep!

Here is the chicken recipe and I hope you will try it. Many times I didn't have all the ingredients and just made do with what I had so don't worry if you don't have a few of them. I've not yet done this chicken with wine, and I've done this probably six times already! So maybe next time I'll try with wine and see the difference.



  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 chicken thighs, skinless
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoons pepper
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can crushed tomatoes in thick puree
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon lemon-pepper
  • Hot buttered rice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves


Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.

Pat chicken dry with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper.

Brown the chicken, meat-side down first, and turning once, about 4 minutes on each side.

Transfer to a plate to reserve.

Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of oil from the pan.

Add onion to the pan and saute until tender, roughly 3 minutes.

Add the stock and wine and stir, scrapping any brown bits off the bottom of the pan.

Turn heat to high and reduce by half, about 3 minutes. Pour in the crushed tomatoes and add the dried herbs and lemon pepper.

Add the chicken thighs back into the pan.Cover and cook on medium-low heat for 40 minutes.
Remove chicken from liquid and serve on hot buttered rice.

Ladle the sauce on top and garnish with fresh chopped parsley.

Cook time: Approx 55mins
Level: Pretty easy
Serves 4-6

Thank you Patrick and Gina!
