This braised chicken dish is a good choice on a cool night. Add a salad along with crusty bread and your family will surely be full by the end of the meal. Any cut of chicken can be used but if you use breasts be careful not to over cook them as they will dry out. I used garbanzo beans for the legume but others would work as well. I like garbanzo beans in soups and stews as they stay firm and don't get mushy when cooked. As for wine with the addition of sausage, tomatoes and legumes this dish will stand up to a red wine. A fruity but not wimpy Barbara or Grenache works. We had a 2008 Terra d Oro Amador County Barbara.
