Baked chicken in red wine sauce

We can enjoy wine by sipping it or we can add it to the dish and create a wonderful harmony of flavors. It is important to have quality wine and quality groceries. Perutnina Ptuj made sure that we have top-quality chicken, which is a combination of tradition, domestic breeding and controlled production process, as evidenced by numerous quality certificates.
Only premium wine goes well with this type of meal, and this time I chose Tomaz Wines Merlot Silente.

Ingredients and preparation steps

  • 2 chicken drumsticks with thigh Perutnina Ptuj Natur
  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1 large zucchini
  • 300 g of black grapes

Ingredients for the sauce

  • 250 ml of premium red wine
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons of mustard with mustard seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of grated fresh ginger

Preheat the oven to 200 ° C.
Add all sauce ingredients into the bowl an whisk to combine them.


  1. Cut sweet potato into cubes about 2 cm in size, and the zucchini into rings about 1 cm thick.
  2. Wash the grapes and lightly dry them with a paper towel.
  3. Arrange the chicken in a deeper pan or shallow pot (whichever you prefer or on hand :), pour sauce over the chicken and add the vegetables and grapes.
  4. Cover the pan / pot with a lid or aluminum foil that will be secured well around the edges. The foil should not touch the chicken and vegetables (that’s why we need deeper pan)
  5. Bake the chicken for hour and a half. In fact, chicken and vegetables will be cooked in wine sauce.
  6. Then, uncover the chicken or remove the foil and bake for another 20 minutes to give the chicken a golden color.

Serve warm with a large salad and enjoy the flavors.
