DIRECTIONS

  • Place a large pot of water over high heat and bring up to a boil for the pierogies.
  • Meanwhile, place a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat with 2 teaspoons of the olive oil. Add the bacon and cook until just brown and crisp, 3-4 minutes. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, add to the skillet with the bacon, and brown all sides, 7-8 minutes. Add the onions, carrots, garlic, paprika, cumin, marjoram or oregano, and bay leaf and cook for 5-6 minutes, until the veggies are just tender.
  • Make a well in the middle of the pan and add 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add the flour to the olive oil and mix to form a paste. Add the wine (or 1/2 cup chicken broth), scraping up all of the brown bits on the bottom of the pan. Add 2 cups chicken stock and the tomatoes and cook for about 20 minutes, until the stew has thickened. Stir in the sour cream and remove from the heat.
  • While the stew is cooking, cook the pierogies in boiling water according to the package directions. Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat, add the butter and cook until the butter turns slightly brown and gives off a nutty aroma. Drain the cooked pierogies, add them to the pan, and cook until slightly browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Add the chives and turn the pierogies to coat.
  • Serve the stew in large bowls, sprinkled with lemon zest and parsley. Arrange 2-3 pierogies on top of each bowl of stew.
