DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Season chicken generously with salt, cayenne and herbs de Provence.
  • Place in an oven safe skillet, interspersed with garlic, red pepper and carrot.
  • Tuck in the parsly sprigs and pour on stock to almost cover chicken.
  • Cover the skillet and braise in the oven until chicken is just cooked through.
  • Meanwhile, reduce the vinegar in another saucepan to 2 Tablespoons.
  • Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  • Place the skillet on the stove and simmer until vegetables are very soft.
  • Remove the parsly and puree the skillet's contents in a blender. ( I used an immersion blender).
  • Return sauce to skillet.
  • Add the reduced vinegar and tomato paste to the sauce.
  • Return the chicken to the pan to reheat gently.
  • Serve on a platter with chopped parsly, if desired.
