Braising the chicken and potatoes in liquid instead of frying them allowed us to sear the chicken, cook the potatoes, and build a sauce for our Chicken Bonne Femme all in the same pot. This cut down on cleanup and also streamlined the cooking process. By browning the thighs skin on and then removing the skin before braising, we could impart flavor to the dish without worrying about the flabby skin that is often a side effect of braising. A simple sauce of dry white wine, chicken broth, onion, garlic, thyme, hot sauce, scallions, and parsley finished off our recipe.
