  • 3 1/2 pound chicken or chicken pieces
  • 3-4 slices bacon chopped
  • 8 ounces mushrooms cut in half or quartered depending on the size.
  • 1 cup onions or shallots or a combination of both, chopped
  • 1 14 ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon tarragon fresh, chopped
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 2-3 Tablespoons brandy or cognac optional
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste


  • Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper. In a large pot or Dutch oven, over a medium high heat, sauté bacon for 2-3 minutes. Remove browned pieces and place on a plate and continue cooking remaining pieces.
  • Add 1/2 of the chicken pieces, depending on the size of your pot, and brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side.
  • Remove browned pieces and place on a plate and continue cooking remaining pieces.
  • Reduce heat to medium and add onions and mushrooms and sauté, stirring occasionally 3-4 minutes, scraping browned bits from bottom of the pan.
  • Add wine and brandy, and deglaze pan. Add tomatoes, herbs and chicken pieces to pot, cover and reduce heat to medium-low and cook for an additional 45 minutes.
  • Remove the chicken pieces to a serving dish and cover. Turn heat up to medium high and cook, reducing sauce so that it is slightly thicker.
  • Turn off heat and stir in 2 Tablespoons butter to finish and enhance sauce.
  • Season with additional salt and pepper and additional chopped herbs.


  • Cut up a whole chicken, or use a combination of legs, thighs and breasts.
  • Don't crowd the chicken when browning.
