Why I Love This Recipe

My mom used to make this dish when I was a kid. You can make it well in advance, and it's great the next day.

Ingredients You'll Need

4 Thin slices bacon
6 chicken thighs
1 bottle of Red dry wine Burgundy
3/4 tsp dried Thyme crushed
1 large onion chopped
3 Carrots chopped 2 inches
4 cloves garlic minced
1/2 lb small red potatoes quartered
10 mushrooms quartered
1 8 oz. can stewed tomatoes ( I like the italian style)
Parsley to garnish
Parmesano grated


Cook bacon. Sprinkle chicken with Thyme, add salt and pepper and brown with onion and garlic in the same pan with the bacon. Cook about 2 minutes, and then drain the oil. Add potatoes, mushrooms, carrots, canned tomoto, and wine. Cook uncovered on medium heat 25 minutes. Garnish with parsley or grated parmesano.

Usually I cook this dish an hour longer because I add more pieces of chicken, like leg pieces. I also like to add spanish green olives. You can omit the potatoes, or add carrots, and serve with rice or pasta, it's delicious and easy.
