White Wine Herb Roasted Chicken is a quick dinner recipe that's super easy and very flavorful. What I love about this recipe is that it marries white wine, herbs, and aromatic garlic to make a beautiful dish. Best of all? It takes about 25-30 minutes to make - start to finish. This recipe also pairs extremely well with just about anything. From veggies to potatoes, or even both, you can eat this with anything!
This White Wine Herb Roasted Chicken also makes a delicious gravy. I literally save the gravy from this and add it over top of salads and sometimes I dip a piece of bread in it. It's amazing how so few ingredients yield such delicious flavors! It's just so easy to make and the results are so good! I adore recipes like this. Quick, delicious, easy - you really can't go wrong.

white wine herb roasted chicken - quick and easy!
So let's chat about this recipe quickly. As mentioned above, it's super easy! I actually made this recipe via stories, so if you'd like to check it out, head over to my instagram. Anywho, I start by preheating the oven to 425 degrees F. Then I clean the chicken and pat it dry with a paper towel. This ensures that the skin crisps up really nicely when you add it to the pan. I add salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning on the chicken and coat both sides. After this, I added a little olive oil to a cast iron skillet and then added the chicken to sear on both sides (about 3-5 minutes on each side). TIP: Allow your oil to get hot first, do not immediately add the chicken into the skillet.
While the chicken is searing, I cut up a red onion and set it aside. I remove the chicken from the heat and add a cup of white wine (you can also add a cup of chicken broth if you don't drink alcohol). Then toss in the onions and roast in the oven for about 20-25 minutes, until the chicken is done. And that's it! You've got dinner in less than a half hour!
let's talk ingredients!
This recipe only calls for 6 ingredients. No complicated techniques or tricks/tips needed here.
Bone-In Chicken Thighs: I love using chicken thighs for this White Wine Herb Roasted Chicken because they're so flavorful and tender. Can you use other cuts of the chicken? Of course! Do you what like, just make sure that you account for cooking times and make sure that the chicken is thoroughly cooked. If you use another cut of chicken, adjust cooking times as needed.
Seasonings: You only need italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt and pepper. That's it! Simple, but so flavorful!
Dry White Wine: Dry white wine and preferably a cheap dry white wine. You don't need anything fancy for this. If you don't drink alcohol, you can use chicken broth in the same quantity required in the recipe below!
Butter: I use salted butter, but if you like unsalted butter or are watching your sodium intake, unsalted butter works just as well! I add the butter to create the gravy while the chicken is cooking in the oven. It adds so much flavor!
Red Onion: Yep! Because red onions are delicious! When you bake them in the oven with the chicken and all of the seasonings, the red onion caramelizes and makes everything just perfect!
