4 chicken legs, with back, skinless   1.2 kg
4 tbsp cornstarch   30 g
1 onions, finely chopped   200 g
2 sprigs rosemary, fresh, finely chopped   10 g
3 slices bacon, chopped   60 g
3 tbsp olive oil   45 mL
1/3 cup white wine   85 mL
1 1/4 cup canned tomatoes (diced)   320 g
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    

Before you start

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


  1. Coat the chicken with cornstarch. Finely chop the onion, rosemary, and bacon.
  2. 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.
  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.
