Before you start
Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.
- Coat the chicken with cornstarch. Finely chop the onion, rosemary, and bacon.
- Heat the oil 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Serve on the warmed plates.

slightlywomanoctober 06, 2012 | I would make this recipe again
I substituted Chicken Broth for the white wine and it was still very good.
