DIRECTIONS

  • Salt and pepper chicken thighs and drumsticks as desired.
  • Dredge in flour, and then shake off excess.
  • Lightly coat a sauté pan with oil.
  • Set over high heat.
  • When almost hot enough to smoke, brown chicken pieces on all sides.
  • Remove to a side dish.
  • In the same pan, lightly brown the onions, and then return the chicken to the pan.
  • In small mixing bowl, blend wine, stock or bouillon, and tomato paste.
  • Add this mixture to the sauté pan with chicken and onions.
  • Add the herb bouquet, immersing it in the liquid.
  • Bringing to a slow simmer, cover and cook for about 25 minutes.
  • Chicken should be tender (a fork will pierce it easily).
  • Note: This can be made in advance to this point; simply cover and reheat.
  • Place chicken on a heated platter, skimming off any fat that is visible.
  • Over high heat, reduce remaining juices for several minutes until lightly thickened.
  • Adjust seasoning as desired (salt and pepper), and then pour sauce over chicken and serve.
