Ingredients

4 chicken legs, with back, skinless 1.2 kg
1/4 cup white flour (all purpose) 30 g
1 onions, finely chopped 200 g
2 sprigs rosemary, fresh, finely chopped 10 g
3 slices bacon, chopped 60 g
2 tbsp olive oil 30 mL
2 tbsp butter, unsalted 28 g
1/3 cup white wine 85 mL
1 1/4 cup canned tomatoes (diced) 320 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Method

  1. Coat the chicken with flour. Finely chop the onion, rosemary, and bacon.
  2. Heat the oil and butter in a pan over high heat. Sauté the chicken pieces thoroughly on each side until golden, about 6-8 min. Take them out of the pan and set aside, keeping them warm in the oven.
  3. Add the bacon, onion, and rosemary into the pan and cook 2-3 min over medium heat. Deglaze with the wine. Cook 6-8 min over medium heat until the cooking juices reduce and are completely absorbed.
  4. Add the diced tomatoes and put the chicken pieces back into the pan. Add salt and pepper. Cook, covered, over medium-low heat 30-35 min.
  5. Serve on the warmed plates.

may 24, 2014 | I would make this recipe again

I made this recipe for 4 of us and we all loved it. It didn't look like the picture because the sauce was much thicker then it shows but it was delicious. I used drumsticks instead because I forgot it was supposed to be chicken legs but it worked out just fine. I didn't use rosemary because I personally don't like that spice. Very good recipe and turns out like restaurant quality.

This turned out really well. I followed the recipe almost exactly, only used 1/2 teaspoon of dried rosemary instead of the fresh one. I will definitely make this again. The sauce alone goes very well with rice.
