Healthy Recipe: Spice-Braised Chicken Legs with Red Wine and Tomato

This just sounds amazing. Can’t wait to try it!

The Game Plan

I have to give Food & Wine a big shout out for including more healthy recipes lately, and providing nutritional information more often. Their stuff is always sophisticated and yummy. I made this for friends a few weeks ago and even though there were four of us and the recipe makes six servings, there were NO leftovers.

From Food & Wine

3 tablespoons canola oil
6 whole chicken legs, split into drumsticks and thighs, skin and fat removed (I just used boneless, skinless chicken thighs because they were on sale, and they were great)
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
2 medium onions, thinly sliced
4 large garlic cloves, smashed
2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
One 3-inch cinnamon stick, broken in half
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper

About Flatlander Tri Coaching

Welcome to my page. My name is Heather Dall and I am a Certified Triathlon Coach located in Omaha, NE. I work out of Prairie Life Fitness (132nd location) and provide triathlon coaching, knowledge, experience, and expertise to those looking to get into triathlons to the seasoned veteran looking to improve performance. Along with being a triathlon coach and athlete, I also manage a local Trek Bicycle Store. There is nothing better than being able to be in a passion industry and share my love of the sport. I am an endurance junkie who got into competitive racing back in 2000. I started off racing mountain bikes, taking the podium numerous times. Then the kids came along and I took some time off to raise the squirts. Back in 2009 my friend suckered me into a mini tri and really the rest is history. I have been doing triathlons ever since, usually about 4-6 triathlons per season-primarily Olympic and X-Terra, plus 10K races, off-road runs, charity bike rides, and the occasional bike race. My background prior to triathlons, is tennis. I grew up playing on the courts in Northern California with the goal to play in college. I did accomplish my goal and was a walk-on at Creighton University. Long story short, while working part-time at Prairie Life Fitness in 2008, I was asked to start a tennis program for youth and adults. I still run the program and coach tennis year round. And with my connections at my gym, I had the opportunity to co-teach a 12 week triathlon training program for about 20 ladies spring 2011. They primarily trained for the Omaha Women’s Tri with a few going on to race later in the season. The group was a huge success and is the main reason I studied to become a triathlon coach. I love helping people to achieve their goals, make new strides, and spread my wealth of knowledge on to other like-minded individuals. Along with coaching, I am a distributor for Juice+ For those looking to add more fruits and veggies to their diet and make smarter nutrition choices, check out my site:
