4 chicken legs, with back, skinless   1.2 kg
1 onions, finely chopped   200 g
2 sprigs rosemary, fresh, finely chopped   10 g
2 tbsp olive oil   30 mL
2 tbsp butter, unsalted   28 g
1/4 cup white flour (all purpose)   30 g
1/3 cup chicken broth   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 flour. Finely chop the onion and rosemary.
  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 onion and rosemary into the pan and cook 2-3 min over medium heat. Deglaze with the broth. 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.
