Need an idea on what to cook for dinner tonight?  Here is yet another delicious chicken dish.  This time stewed in a red wine sauce, with mushrooms, bacon and peas. You can serve it with home made French Fries, Rice or even Pasta.

Ingredients

  • 4-5 pieces of chicken (of your choice)
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 cup of Gluten Free chicken stock
  • 2 cups good red wine
  • 6 mushrooms sliced
  • 4 carrots sliced into long strips
  • 200g smoked pancetta or bacon, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of GF flour
  • 4 tablespoons of tomato paste
  • 1 dash of olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp mixed spice
  • 1/2 tsp curry
  • 1/2 tsp chili
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Freshly chopped Parsley

Method

Fry the chicken pieces in pan with a drizzle of olive oil until golden. Remove from the pan, throw in the onions, sauté for a few minutes and then add the bacon and garlic to the pan. Put the chicken back in, sprinkle a tablespoon of GF flour and stir the chicken pieces to coat it with flour. Season with salt and pepper.

Pour in the chicken stock, the red wine, sliced mushrooms and the carrots. Add also the spices and tomato paste. Cover and let simmer for 1 hour. Add the frozen peas. Remove the lid and cook over medium heat for the last 20 minutes.

The sauce should reduce to concentrate the flavors. Sprinkle with chopped parsley before serving.
