Like the other posters this week, I am thrilled to be in this chapter, as we eat LOTS of chicken. This recipe is a great dish to celebrate the cooler weather. My photo looks like a mess. But it was a very GOOD mess! This is very much like a stew with onion, carrot, peppers, celery, imported canned plum tomatoes, garlic, white wine and CHICKEN. This is definitely a great fall comfort food dish!
A whole chicken cut into pieces, lightly turned in flour, browned, and then cooked slowly with the other ingredients. It is served with the vegetables over the top. I had house guests for the weekend and used Marcella's "Ahead-of -time note" to prepare the chicken the day before. I simply reheated it before serving it with some creamy polenta. It is "falling off the bone" tender and flavorful. There were rave reviews around the table.
