3 3 1/2 lb chickens (parted into 8's-> can buy em that way if you don't want to be the butcher)

1 qt red wine

1 pt chicken stock

sachet of: thyme, bay leaf, 4 crushed garlic cloves

 

2 oz of butter (softened)

2 oz of flour

 

 

preheat over to 300. crisp the bacon in pot or pan. remove from pot or pan (but save). sear chicken. remove. boil pearl onions for 2-3 min. peel. saute oinions and mushrooms until brown. remove and save. pour off fat from pan. add wine and stock- bring to boil. add sachet. return chicken to pot/pan. bring back to a boil. cook covered in oven until done (30-40 min). again... lol... remove chicken (can hold it in low temp oven). on stove, bring liquid to boil. add mushrooms, onions, bacon. reduce liquid to 1 qt. mix the butter and flour in a bowl (called a beurre manie- uncooked roux). add just enough to thicken using a wisk.

Awesome recipe Bier. Everyone enjoyed it! :D

 

 

 

Very Cool. I'll have to give it a try sometime.

 

I made paella last night. Once again, way too much but was very good. We had a bottle of Rioja and a bottle of young Syrah. Neither was a perfect match but not bad.

So is this an "any red you have laying around the house" sort of thing? What sort of red are you using for your vin?
