Chicken Braised in Red Wine Peppers & Potatoes ❦ Frango Estufado com Vinho Tinto Pimentos e Batatas

Today was one of those days. I was missing my mom, as I often do, and this dish came to the rescue. This delicious braised chicken was served often in our house. Somehow with the hustle and bustle of life, and maybe my love of pasta, it has been forgotten. I haven't bought red wine in like forever, and since I needed it for the meal I am making tomorrow, I bought some. I instantly remembered my mom's chicken. In fact, she only used red wine, even if the recipe called for white, and you know what? It always came out incredible. Better yet, it's a one pot meal, even though us Portuguese love a bit of rice on the side :)

So, happy "hump day" my friends...cook some chicken, pour yourself a glass of tinto and enjoy the day....life is just too short for anything less. Oh, and get flowers...always. Your home should NEVER be flower free.
