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 tbsp olive oil 45 mL
1/3 cup white wine 85 mL
1 1/4 cup canned tomatoes, low sodium 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 and rosemary.
  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 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.

it looks tasty but to buy the small quantities of bacon and white wine and diced tomotoes would waste the unused portions - particularly in 2 servings. Suggestions?
