If you have any know-it-all foodie friends (or if that person is you…although I know it’s not) I’m sure they’ve told you that rhubarb is actually a vegetable! That’s right, it’s a member of the buckwheat family, and not only that, rhubarb is really good for you. It helps strengthen bones, has crazy amounts of that rare vitamin-K which gives you super brain power (as if you weren’t smart enough already) and helps lower cholesterol.
A good place to start in rhubarb-as-vegetable cooking is with a delicious braised chicken dish like this one. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, braising chicken is hands down the best way to cook it. It is nearly impossible to overcook, stays juicy, and comes out meltingly tender.
