  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 small bone-in chicken thighs (about 2 1⁄2 pounds)
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 12 medium radishes, halved
  • 3/4pound carrots (about 4), cut into sticks
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

 

Directions:

  1. Heat the oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat.
  2. Season the chicken with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Cook until browned, 6 to 7 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Spoon off and discard the fat. Return the pot to medium-high heat. Add the broth and scrape up any brown bits.
  4. Stir in the radishes, carrots, and sugar.
  5. Place the chicken on top of the vegetables and gently simmer, partly covered, until it is cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes. Sprinkle with the chives.
