Make this Chianti chicken from the comfort of your own kitchen.

This recipe is from Giada at Trafalgar, a Be My Guest host.

Cook up a Tuscan specialty from the comfort of your kitchen with Giada. This Italian soul food recipe has only 5 ingredients.


  • Chicken legs
  • 1 clove of garlic (optional)
  • A skewer of rosemary
  • Salt & pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Red wine (Chianti if you have it as this is a Tuscan wine)


  1. Cut the chicken into 2 pieces (skin-on) and generously season with salt & pepper. Massage the meat to let the chicken absorb the seasoning.
  2. Heat the oil in a heavy cast iron skillet with garlic and rosemary and brown the chicken on each side, until it is dark brown in color
  3. Pour the wine and let it boil for a few seconds, then reduce the heat and let it simmer, covered, for 30 to 40 minutes or until the sauce is thick and reduced.
  4. Once cooked, serve with a simple side salad and a fresh loaf of bread
