Get yo man chicken

I cooked this Sunday night for the third time ever, and talk about good. I mean..the chicken just falls apart from being so tender. You can taste the herbs (rosemary, and thyme) which I love. I like to taste my food. Nothing bland walks away from my stove. The recipe is from the Nelly's of The Food Network. Gina jokes that this meal is what “Got her man”, so she recommends other women to cook it for a man to “GET YO MAN”…Funny..but oh so good goot. I placed the rice on the plate first, then added the chicken on top, followed by some of the sauce. Steamed broccoli or cabbage goes great with this. If you try it let me know what you think.

DSC_0228 Get Yo Man Chicken

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 chicken thighs or breast ( I used breasts), 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
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon lemon-pepper
  • Hot rice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves (optional)


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 sauté 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.

Erika- My husband was standing over the stove. I was like boy would you move. He said its light and flavorful! Not to mention the kids sampled it before it was done, and they would not leave me alone until it was done. HOME RUN!

Sarah- When I visit Cali!

Looks delish! I love Pat & Gina's recipes. I just might have to try this while my bf is in town!

Terri said...

Seems like i'll be snowed in tonight so maybe i'll try it out. Looks incredible.

Girl, I have tried this and you are right, the whole family will be in the kitchen.

If your hubby likes spicy food, try the spicy hot wings. I have to make them now everytime he has the fellas come over!

Gina and Pat know they're wrong! Girl I even did their barbecue steak sauce...people still asking me for the "recipe" LOL! I love G&P!

As soon I saw the post title I knew it was from Down home with the Neeleys. They are too much.

Wow! I am cooking this on Saturday, but I am doing Mac-N-cheese and a green salad with it. I have the Neeley's cookbook and all three dishes came from it. Thanks for the heads up because this is my first time. I will let you know how it goes.

Brooke said...

I have made this before.
I like *SPICeeee* food so mine was a little more spicer than it called for. It was still good however. I love Pat & Gina's cookbook. The sauces are the ISH!
So you really don't cook? How I wish My Hubbster would cook. He grills so that will have to do!

My fiance would be in heaven if I made this. I don't eat chicken, but this is the type of food he loves! I've printed the receipe out for him to try (he's a chef by hobby, so I leave meat dishes to him ;)
